Mexico and the United States are the two CONCACAF powers, and once again they will face each other in the Gold Cup final, which will be the sixth time they will meet in the most crucial match of the tournament where the ruler of the continent will be defined.

It's been eight years since the last time that Mexico and USA clashed in the final match of the Gold Cup, with a positive balance for El Tri.

The CONCACAF Clasico is a game that is continuously happening for friendly match or World Cup qualifiers, but in the Gold Cup, it didn't happen since 2011 when Mexico achieved its sixth championship. Its been eight years since that Gio Dos Santos iconic goal which sentenced the 4-2 victory for the squad led at that time by Jose Manuel de la Torre.

In 1991 the first Gold Cup edition, they met in the semifinal round, the victory 2-0 was for the American side, at Rose Bowl.

Mexico's dominance

The US side has only beaten the hated rival in the 2007 edition, equalizing the Mexican trophies at four each at that time. Landon Donovan and Feilhaber were behind the US victory at Soldier Field, coincidentally the same stadium where the 2019 final will be held.
