Mexico – Costa Rica Preview: Team News, Latest Form, and Potential Lineups

Find all the latest news and updates on both teams right here, including our predicted Mexico vs Costa Rica lineups:

Mexico

After wins in their first two games in the group Mexico already secured the top spot. With that in mind, their loss with a mixed team against Qatar in the last round of group stages wasn't as surprising as it would've been otherwise. In any case, Mexico seemed great so far at the tournament and while Costa Rica is a good team, they are clearly the favorites to get to the semi-finals of Gold Cup.

Mexico Predicted Lineup:

Ochoa – Araujo, Alvarez, Vasquez, Gallardo – E. Sanchez, Chavez, Romo – Antuna, Martin, Pineda

Costa Rica

Although they entered the last round of the group stages with just one point, Costa Rica was lucky enough that a win over Martinique was all they needed to finish second in their group. So, it wasn't a great tournament for them so far, but here they are, in the quarter-finals and with a chance to get even further, if they can surprise Mexico.

Costa Rica Predicted Lineup:

Chamorro – Fuller, Waston, Vargas, Calvo – Azofeifa, Borges – Campbell, Mora, Madrigal – Contreras

Teams commonly release their starting lineups one hour before the kickoff.

Player to Watch: Henry Martin

While Martin only scored one goal in the group stages, he also added one assist to contribute to his team finishing first in their group and he is our player to watch against Costa Rica.

After all, the 30-year-old forward has plenty of experience and that can be very valuable in quarter-finals, so Costa Rica needs to keep a close eye on Martin in this game.
