Looking to move top of the group in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers, Mexico take a trip to the Commonwealth Stadium to face Canada on Wednesday.

The hosts, who remain the only side yet to taste defeat in the qualifiers, will be looking to maintain their fine run and leapfrog the visitors on the log.

Canada continued their fine run of results in their race for a World Cup ticket as they claimed a 1-0 win over a dogged Costa Rica side.

John Herdman’s men are now unbeaten in each of their last seven outings, claiming three wins and four draws since a 2-1 loss against Wednesday’s visitors back in July’s Gold Cup semi-finals.

With 13 points from seven outings, Canada are currently third in the CONCACAF qualification standings, one point behind Mexico.

Mexico, on the other hand, failed to arrest their slump in form as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of 10-man USA last time out.

Prior to that, Gerardo Martino’s men saw their six-game unbeaten run come to an end when they suffered a thrilling 3-2 loss against Ecuador in a friendly fixture.

Mexico will now look to end this dry spell and claim all three points to move above first-placed USA in the standings.

Canada vs Mexico Head-To-Head
