Panama started the final round of qualifying with a big 1-0 win over Honduras. That puts the team into the World Cup conversation, but they’ll need more than three points if they plan on going to Russia in 2018.
Mexico will have the talent advantage Tuesday night, but they’ll also be without a handful of top players. Andres Guardado is hurt, Carlos Salcedo picked up a red card at the end of the Mexico-USA clash, and Carlos Vela will miss the match for the birth of his child.
Mexico will look to break a 16-year winless drought in Panama, but they’ve been streak breakers under Juan Carlos Osorio. Just during Russia 2018 qualifying, Mexico have won in Honduras for the first time in 22 years, won in Canada for the first time in 23 years, and taken three points in the United States for the first time since 1972.
