Mexico and Panama will face each other in a friendly international this week. The match is slated to kick off at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee at 2am UK time on Thursday.

Mexico

Mexico are preparing for the CONCACAF Gold Cup and will be determined to win it for the second year in a row. They will kick off their campaign on July 10 and will face Nigeria in Los Angeles after the game against Panama in another friendly international.

Gerardo Martino’s side will head into the match against Panama on the back of a goalless draw with Honduras in Atlanta in a friendly international. It followed a 3-2 defeat to the USA after extra time in the 2021 CONCACAF Nations League Final.

Team News:

Andres Guardado is injured for the match. Manager Martino is likely to use his best team.

Panama

Like Mexico, Panama are also preparing for the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup. They will kick off their campaign against Qatar on July 13.

Thomas Christiansen’s side will head into the match against Mexico on the back of a goalless draw with Curacao in Willemstad on June 15 in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying. It followed a 2-1 victory over the same opponents and came off the back of a 3-0 win against Dominican Republic. Also in June, Panama hammered Anguilla 13-0.

Team News:

Like Mexico, Panama are likely to field their best team. Gabriel Torres could lead the line in place of Jose Fajardo.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Mexico have won 10 of their 16 matches against Panama.
  • Panama have won four of their 16 matches against Mexico.
  • Mexico beat Panama 1-0 in their last side.
  • Panama have won four of their last five matches.
  • Mexico have won two of their last five games.

Conclusion

Panama will make it hard for Mexico and will want to win by producing a strong display. The Mexicans will try to do likewise. A draw could be the final outcome.
