Mexico vs Wales – International Friendly : This Monday, Mexico faces Wales on a international friendly to prepare for the World Cup.
Mexico always comes into the World Cup as a force of Latin-American football. The team is led by the Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio.
But he is under pressure for the World Cup, especially due to the results of the latest Copa America. On the qualifiers, Mexico didn’t have a hard time to qualify.
And at the same time, they saw their great rivals, the United States, missing out on a World Cup after a long time. Mexico advanced in 1st place of their group with 21 points, 5 above the 2nd place Costa Rica.
Mexico has some problems since Reyes, Moreno, Guardado and Gio dos Santos are injured, although the last one was a chance to play some minutes.
Wales finished in 3rd place of their group and saw Serbia and Ireland qualifying to the World Cup and to the qualification play-off respectively.
The team comes into this friendly without their main star since Bale will not be available since he played in the Champions League’s final on the weekend.
Mexico vs Wales – Betting Tip and Prediction:
But besides him, Wales comes with a very different team, without some of their main players and some U21 athletes.
This is the start of the renovation process that Giggs will enforce on the national team.
With a Mexico almost in full strength, playing in front of 85 000 people in the United States and against a Wales’ side very far from ideal, I believe the Mexicans will win.
