Costa Rica enters tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Mexico with some rhythm after hauling off two straight victories, but as everyone who rolls in to Estadio Azteca knows, they will have their backs against the wall against El Tri and their rowdy fans. Mexico and Costa Rica are currently involved in a three-way tie at the top of their group, so a win would be a huge leg up on the opponent.
Mexico will need to use the energy of the Estadio Azteca crowd early in the match to get their offense rolling if they want to pull away and take sole possession of first place, so you should expect an aggressive attack right off the bat as they look to shock Ticos with what they are in for.
