Match Preview

Though their 3-2 win over Martinique on Gold Cup group matchday #3 was an unexpectedly hard-fought one, Mexico will care only for a winning run that now stands at seven games. Their matches seldom fail to entertain either, with their last four seeing ‘El Tri’ score first and win the first half ‘to-nil’.
Even though Mexico look like a solid outfit, they will do well to note that two of those four wins saw the opposition net the second goal of the match for 1-1, and do so inside the first 15 minutes of the second half. However, those same two matches saw Mexico regain the lead within five minutes of the hour mark.
Costa Rica’s shock defeat to Haiti (2-1) in their final group game was inconsequential. However, it was their first loss of that ilk since October 2018. The opponents on the day were none other than Mexico, who beat Costa Rica 3-2, with the first four match goals arriving before the 60th minute.
Overall, just one of Costa Rica’s last five H2H encounters with Mexico has produced a scoreline separating the teams by two or more goals. However, within that same set of five encounters, one team has led at half-time on four occasions, though only one of those matches saw the half-time leader hold out for a win.
Players to watch: Two of Mexico’s group games saw Raúl Jiménez score beyond the hour mark.
Álvaro Saborío (CRC) was the opening scorer in his nation’s defeat to Haiti, getting his first international goal in the 13th minute.
Stat attack: Four of Mexico’s last five Gold Cup goals have arrived in the second half.
Three of Mexico’s last four matches have seen them net the opening goal inside the first 30 minutes.
Four of Costa Rica’s last five matches have seen them win the first half.
