Mexico is looking to remain perfect in Group B of the 2014 World Cup qualifying rounds. They have six points after opening play with wins over Guyana and El Salvador.

Costa Rica has four points after opening with a 2-2 tie against El Salvador and a dominating win over Guyana.  

El Tri can secure a spot in the next round with a win. They travel to San José and Costa Rica can establish themselves as a favorite to grab one of the two spots from the four-team group with a win.

They will be facing a very strong Mexican side, though.

This qualifying match should be hard-fought.

Mexico will be playing without a few key players. Midfielder Pablo Barrera tore a knee ligament, and Giovani dos Santos won't be playing following his recent transfer to Mallorca (Spain).
They will look to rebound after a friendly loss to the United States in Mexico City.

The last side to beat Mexico at that venue in a competitive match was Costa Rica, doing so in 2001.

Javier (Chicharito) Hernandez will look to launch his season with some solid play for his national team. Manchester United didn't allow him to participate in Olympic play, keeping the star from participating with the team that won the gold medal.

He's only taken the pitch once for Man U once this season and should be fresh and eager.

Costa Rica will be happy with securing a tie, but that seems unlikely. Mexico has simply been dominant in all phases of international play as of late. 

I expect El Tri will walk off the pitch with a 3-1 victory.
