[USA-MEXICO] Whom does recent form favor in Columbus? It's been 12 years since the USA lost a World Cup qualifier at home, but Mexico has romped the last two times the teams have met north of the border in official competition.

Since the USA's third "Dos a Cero" win in 2009, it has faced Mexico twice at home in official competition and lost both times: 5-0 in the 2009 Gold Cup final and 4-2 in the 2011 Gold Cup.

The number of players carrying yellow cards into Tuesday's game is down to four:

Card carriers:
Clint Dempsey
Tim Howard
Fabian Johnson
Jermaine Jones

Since 2000, the USA owns a plus-6 advantage on Mexico in their 20-game series. Before 2000, Mexico's edge in the 41-game series was a whopping plus-22.

USA vs. Mexico
1934-99: 5-27-9
2000-13: 11-5-4

The USA's unbeaten streak in home World Cup qualifiers is 25 games (23-0-2) dating back 12 years to the game it lost to Honduras, 3-2, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
