Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw

Best Odds: 13/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Mexico and France will face each other in Group A at the Tokyo Olympics. The match will be held in Chofu and is scheduled to kick off at 9am on Thursday.

Mexico

The Mexico Under-23 side won the football competition at the Olympics in London in 2012. El Tri won the final against Brazil at Wembley Stadium in London. However, the Mexicans failed to make much of note at the 2016 Olympics and could not even make it past the group stage. They will be looking to progress from Group A to the knockout rounds.

Team News:

Real Betis winger Diego Lainez will start for Mexico. Guillermo Ochoa should be in goal.

France

France are a super power in football, but Les Bleus really do not have a great track record in Olympic football. France last won the Olympics back in 1984, and not many will back them to go all the way in Tokyo.

Team News:

Andre-Pierre Gignac and Florian Thuavin are likely to start for France. Pierre Kalulu and Modibo Sagnan could start in central defence.

Conclusion

Mexico will be determined to make a strong start, but France will not be easy pushovers. One should not be surprised if this game ends in a draw.

Prediction: Match to end in 2-2 draw

Best Odds: 13/1

Bookmaker: Betfair
