The USA enter this match having beaten Jamaica 3-1 in the semifinal. It was a good performance by the USA as they had 52% of the possession and had 9 shots on target. Christian Pulisic showed his class by scoring 2 goals for the USA. Weston McKennie scored the opening goal of the game.
It has been an outstanding tournament for the USA as they have won all of their games. The USA have scored 15 goals and conceded 1 goal in this tournament.
On the other side of the coin, Mexico were solid in their semifinal match as they defeated Haiti 1-0. Raul Jimenez scored the only goal of the game in the 93rd minute. Mexico dominated most of the game as they had 70% of the ball and took 27 shots. Despite only scoring 1 goal, Mexico were very impressive in the match against Haiti and the team looks confident as they head into this fixture.
Mexico have also won all of their games in this tournament. Mexico have scored 15 goals and conceded 3 goals in this tournament.
This match between Mexico and the USA is set to be played at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.
Since 2010, Mexico and the USA have played each other on 11 occasions. Mexico has won 3 occasions, the USA have won on 4 occasions and 4 matches have been draws. Mexico have won the CONCACAF Gold Cup on 7 occasions while the USA have won this title on 6 occasions.
Both the USA and Mexico have been outstanding throughout this tournament and both teams will be optimistic about their chances of winning this match. I am going to predict the USA to win this match. The USA have defended better than Mexico in this tournament and I see that being the difference between these teams. The USA have the advantage of playing on home soil and I see them being good enough to defeat Mexico and win the title.
