Mexico (4-3-3): Ochoa; Rodriguez, Reyes, Araujo, Gallardo; Alvarez, Guardado, Dos Santos; Antuna, Jimenez, Alvarado.
Costa Rica (4-4-2): Moreira; Gamboa, Waston, Duarte, Oviedo; Cruz, Borges, Campell, Aguilar; Ruiz, George.
Mexico ended Group A with a winner record, but only 3-2 Martinique won in the final, which led to suspicion. Meanwhile, Costa Rica is even the second in Group B after the unexpected defeat of Haiti in the last round.
This is the 8th meeting of Mexico and Costa Rica in the history of the Golden Cup and Mexico with 5 wins. The latest match between the two teams was in the quarterfinals of the Golden Cup 2015, Guardado scored the only goal in the penalty shootout to help Mexico win.
With that defeat, Costa Rica has raised a number of games that could not beat Mexico up to 7 consecutive Golden Cups, tournaments that could never beat Mexico.
