Friendly International
Mexico 3-2 Costa Rica

TIPS: Over 1.5 Goals | Odds: 1.45 | Result: 3:2 WON!!!


For both sides, it will be their third friendly match after the World Cup (WC) in Russia. The Mexicans have failed to win their last four games, having seen their WC adventure end with a 2-0 loss against Brazil (in the round-of-16) within that sequence.
Mexico boss Ricardo Ferretti got rid of five European-based players for the two upcoming friendly games against Costa Rica and Chile. Therefore, it will be an opportunity for some new blood to improve on Mexico’s bleak return of just one goal scored and ten goals conceded across the last four outings.
After a terrible run for Costa Rica, with no wins in their last seven clashes, they are desperate to reverse the situation under new head coach Gustavo Matosas. The Ticos have failed to score in four of their last five games and their last win against anyone came in May.
Additionally, Costa Rica have only won two of their last 15 games, having scored more than 1.5 goals in just two of them. The H2H record has also been quite one-sided, with Costa Rica winning just once in their last 19 clashes against Mexico (W1, D7, L11).
Players to watch: After shining at the WC, Mexico forward Hirving Lozano will hope to find the back of the net again after he scored the winning goal against Germany.
With 24 goals in 112 appearances, captain Bryan Ruiz is still one of the key players for Costa Rica.
Stat attack: None of Costa Rica’s last 22 games have produced a 0-0 scoreline.
Mexico have seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last six games.
Both sides met for a qualification round of the WC in their last H2H, with a 1-1 scoreline being produced.
