Why Should I Bet on Brazil vs Mexico?
For all the hype surrounding Brazil before the action in Russia got underway they haven’t exactly got the pulses racing. Despite finishing at the top of Group E, the South Americans have looked beatable and if the draw to Switzerland was anything to go by, a physical challenge has the potential to send Brazil back into their own half and limit their venturing forward.
Mexico provide an intriguing clash for Brazil but for all of Brazil’s failures to set the World Cup alight yet, this is still a clash they go into as heavy favourites. Betstar has a Brazilian win priced at 1.50 and that looks the way to go.
Brazil vs Mexico Preview
After Mexico’s tournament-opening win against Germany, they appeared to come across as a side to take note off. What has been revealed since then is that result said more about Germany than Mexico, with the Germans crashing out of a World Cup in the group stages for the first time since 1938.
The wheels well and truly came off against Sweden as the Mexicans went down 3-0 and carelessly left themselves in danger of going out of the World Cup. Brazil won’t fear Mexico and the Mexicans will be a bit shaken after a needless thumping at the hands of Sweden. Any confidence in the Mexican camp would have drained out and Brazil should pounce to send Mexico home.
Brazil vs Mexico Score Prediction
The Mexican defence capitulated at the hands of a determined Swedish attack and let three in. Brazil have a lot more quality up front than Sweden and should get in behind the Mexican backline at will. Bet365 have a Brazilian 2-0 win priced at 7.00.
Brazil have been solid at the back and have managed to keep two clean sheets already whilst Mexico have had four goals scored against them. A strong Brazilian defence should keep out the Mexican attack. Punters backing Under 2.5 Goals can do so with Crownbet at 1.76.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Brazil will certainly get on the scoresheet, as they have managed to in all of their three group games. Mexico don’t carry an attacking threat that will worry Brazil and even when the Mexicans do work an opening, their final ball and end result is lacking in any real quality. No to both teams to score is 1.62 with Betstar.
Mexico have conceded four goals in their last two games
Brazil have kept eight clean sheets in their last nine games
Brazil have scored 17 goals in their last eight games
Gabriel Jesus to score the first Brazilian goal is 5.00 with William Hill
Brazil have qualified from the group stage for the 13th consecutive time
