Preview: Late goals via Cristian Pulisic and Weston McKennie wrapped up a 2-0 triumph for the USA when these sides clashed first time around during this Octagonal stage for CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, but can the Stars and Stripes do something they’ve never before achieved? That being the double over their fierce North America rivals Mexico.

Mexico – El Tri leaning heavily on home comforts?

El Tri would feature at every one of seven previous World Cup finals, bowing out at the last sixteen stage each time, and remain on course for an eighth consecutive appearance even if their position is less secure than they would like. Gerardo Martino’s men reside in third, level on points with the USA who sit second, and so find themselves in the same predicament of knowing five points out of nine will suffice.

Mexico begun the Octagonal stage in fine fettle, winning their opening two qualifiers against Jamaica and Mexico. They then plateaued, going two from six for wins (W2 D2 L2) as they lost back-to-back to main rivals Canada and USA. Neither were on Mexican soil, though, where they remain unbeaten in five qualifying outings so far (W3 D2), conceding only twice, and have never lost a World Cup Qualifier to the USMNT.

Key Stat: Mexico haven’t led at half-time in any of five previous World Cup qualifiers (D4 L1 at half-time in those matches), and in only one of their five home qualifiers thus far (W1 D4 at half-time).

USA – Further road rage awaits Berhalter?

Five years on from their now-infamous capitulation away at Trinidad & Tobago, where defeat coupled with other results saw them miss out on the 2018 finals despite being well placed to make it to Russia, the US Men’s National Team are once again on the cusp of sealing World Cup qualification. Gregg Berhalter’s side sit second on 21 points through 11 rounds of this Octagonal stage, beaten only twice thus far (W6 D3).

Five points from the nine available ensures the Stars and Stripes can finish no lower than third, and thus qualifies automatically for Qatar 2022. Anything they take from the first of three games, however, will be deemed a bonus. This is due to the USA toiling on the road this campaign, winning once in five such matches (D2 L2). Meanwhile a D3 L13 record on Mexican soil in World Cup qualifiers speaks for itself.

Key Stat: Five of six qualifying wins so far, as well as 11 of 16 goals scored, were earned back in the states where the USMNT boast five wins and a draw from six such matches compared with a modest record of W1 D2 L2 away from home.

Both teams enter into this fixture – the biggest in the North American international football sphere – in positions of strength, even if there remains an element of precariousness about them being four points clear of Panama, who occupy the play-off berth as things stand. Defeat for either would crank up that feeling of anxiety, possibly leading to a tense exchange between these teams at the Azteca.


Mexico Vs USA – Key Facts:

  • Both Mexico and USA have put together identical W6 D3 L2 records thus far, though the USA did inflict one of Mexico’s two losses with a 2-0 result in Cincinnati last November.
  • It is a different story altogether in Mexico, though, with El Tri winning 13 and losing none of 16 prior head-to-head meetings on Mexican soil.
  • Strong defensive backlines have been the bedrock of both teams successful campaigns to date. Leading to both teams scoring in only one of each of these team’s past five qualifiers.


At the current prices, Mexico, with an unbelievably formidable record that reads W13 D3 at home against the USA in World Cup qualifying, look incredible value. Yet they’ve been streaky of late, even dropping points as hosts to Canada and Costa Rica (both low scoring stalemates). A tight encounter is forecast therefore, between sides which have seen Both Teams to Score return a winner once across their last five qualifiers.
