March 22, 2013: Mexico 2, Honduras 2The United States Men's National Team will be trying to make history while the Mexican National Team will try and feed off of their home crowd as both look for a win in tonight's biggest World Cup qualifying match. In two matches thus far, the U.S. have one win and a draw, while Mexico has two draws.

Mexico is a combined XXX in World Cup qualifying at Estadio Azteca, but some have questioned whether the stadium has lost its aura.

Match Info

Time: 9:30 pm CST

TV: Univision (Spanish), ESPN (English), Watch ESPN (English)

Venue: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico

Projected Starters

United States: Guzan; Cameron, Gonzalez, Goodson, Beasley; Edu, Bradley, Gomez, Dempsey, Zusi; Altidore.

Mexico: Corona; Meza, Reyes, Moreno, Torres Nilo; Salcido, Zavala, Guardardo, Dos Santos, Aquino; Hernandez

Prediction

While the United States is riding the high of their first ever victory in Estadio Azteca in August 2012, Mexico isn't too happy with getting two points from two matches in WCQ thus far. With that being said, I'm thinking Mexico will come up fired up with the support of 100,000 screaming fans and get a 3-1 victory. It's not a horrible result considering the US would still have three points from three matches.

In the end, both clubs will qualify for the World Cup - so tonight's really about bragging rights, right?
