Team Preview

Mexico

Mexico were brilliant in the group stage as they topped Group A with seven points after defeating El Salvador 1-0 in their last game.

They have ticked all their boxes right from the defense in the back to the forwards at the front. They would look to replicate the same in this match and book their spot in the semis.

Honduras

Honduras finished at the second spot in Group D with six points after being defeated by Qatar 2-0 in their last game.

They have been decent throughout the group stages except for the last CONCACAF Gold Cup encounter. However, they would eye to come with a fresh mindset in this game and avoid any mistakes against a tough Mexico side.

Head-to-Head

Mexico and Honduras have met on 42 occasions, with Mexico having a clear edge winning 24 games to Honduras’ eight victories. They last encountered in 2020, with the game ending in a goalless draw.
