Germany set a new record during qualifying with a goal difference of +39 and Joachim Low’s side looked imperious as they booked their place at the 2018 World Cup with incredbile ease. Their unbeaten run came to end during an international friendly with Brazil in March but despite that slip-up, they remain in excellent shape and will be confident of progressing from Group F. They sealed their qualification with a 3-1 victory against Nothern Ireland and netted a total of 43 times across the ten matches.
Mexico eased through qualifying and booked the place at the 2018 World Cup by topping the CONCACAF group once again. El Tri continue their excellent record of qualifying for the tournament, although, they will be hoping to avoid a seventh successive second-round exit in Russia. Some of their fans remain unsure about the quality of their squad and they must be wary of Sweden, who could qualify at their expense from Group F. Juan Carlos Osorio is the man tasked with helping Mexico reach the latter stages of the competition but he is awaiting news on a number of key players including Diego Reyes and Andres Guardado. The latter has undergone successful surgery allowing him to play some part in the tournament.
These two sides met in the 2017 Confederations Cup and Germany emerged 4-1 winners. It was a chastening experience for El Tri who were punished for defensive errors and they found it difficult to keep tabs on a lively German forward line. They continue to search for their first victory against Germany with the European side triumphing 2-1 during their only previous meeting at a World Cup. Mexico like to keep possession and dictate the rhythm of the game, which worked well against weaker opposition. However, they are unlikely to be given as much leeway against Germany.
