Competition: International Friendly

Market: Mexico to beat Croatia

Odds: 17/20 @ Bet365

With both sides putting together their final preparations for the summers World Cup finals in Russia, Mexico will welcome Croatia to the Estadio Azteca on Wednesday night.

For Juan Carlos Osorio’s side, after booking their spot at the finals in convincing fashion, Mexico will travel to Russia as a potential surprise package. Finishing top of their qualifying group with both the best defensive and attacking statistics, Osorio’s Greens will fancy their chance of producing an eye-catching run this summer. Drawn in a group with defending champions Germany, South Korea and Sweden, Mexico, led by Javier Hernadez will fancy their chances of clinching the second spot in the group. Now unbeaten in their last four friendly matches, winning their last three on the bounce, Mexico have continued to impress, they have not conceded a goal since November 2017.

As for Croatia, after bizarrely sacking boss Ante Cacic on the eve of their final qualifying matchup, the Blazers have now turned to Zlatko Dalic’s to lead them to this summers finals. After finishing second in Group I, two points adrift of Iceland, Croatia breezed past Greece in the playoffs and also finished qualifying with the joint second-best defensive record recorded by any side. Most recently coming off the back of a 2-0 defeat away to Peru last weekend, Croatia will know the importance of finding their form before the tournaments gets underway in June. Placed in a group with Argentina, Nigeria and qualifying foes Iceland, the Blazers face a tough test this summer.
