Competition: International Friendly
Market: Mexico to win to nil
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet365
In the early hours of Tuesday, Mexico will look to carry on their immaculate record at the Estadio Azteca when they face off against Wales.
For Juan Carlos Osorio’s Mexico side, after an eye-catching qualifying stage saw them top each stage and also boast the best defensive record in the North, Central America and Caribbean group campaign, The Greens will be feeling confident ahead of the World Cup finals in Russia this summer. Placed in a group with defending champions Germany, Sweden and South Korea, Mexico will fancy their chances of reaching it to the knockout stages. As for their preparations, although the hosts are coming off the back of a 1-0 loss to Croatia at the Estadio Azteca, they had won their last seven on the bounce and have not been beaten on home soil again since June 2015, a 33 match run.
As for the visitors, after having their hearts broken after a final day defeat to the Republic of Ireland crushed their chance of a playoff spot, Wales have turned to former Manchester United star and captain Ryan Giggs in an attempt to better their Euro 2016 semi-final. Making just his third appearance in the Red Dragons dugout, Giggs will not be able to call upon Gareth Bale and has a long list of international debutants. While his debut match may have seen a 6-0 victory over China, Wales lost to Uruguay in the final of the China Cup and the reds have now won just one of their last five, failing to find the net in three of those outings.
