Mexico are a very familiar face at the World Cup and something wouldn’t quite feel right if the Latin Americans weren’t a part of this summer’s tournament. They have qualified for sixteen World Cups and more often than not perform very well.
They have also hosted two of the most famous World Cups in history in 1970, when Brazil delighted the world with a stupendous brand of football, and in 1986, when an Argentinian side inspired by Diego Maradona were victorious. You could say that Mexico is a huge part of the whole World Cup story.
This summer, Mexico will be hoping for a strong display and we feel that they are certainly worth putting a couple of cheeky bets on in some form. Mexico may just cause an upset or two. With players like goal poacher Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela and captain Andres Guardado, Mexico are certainly a very capable side.
In this article we will have a look at what we think might be in store for Mexico in Russia. We will also consider the odds on Mexico winning World Cup 2018 and a number of the other Mexico betting options.
Mexico World Cup 2018 Schedule
First of all, let’s have a look at Mexico’s schedule. Mexico kick off on 17th June against Germany in Group F. This will be a difficult game, and Mexico will do well to come out of this game without losing.
Next, Mexico will play South Korea on the 23rd June. Mexico certainly have enough about them to beat South Korea. Their last game is against Sweden on the 27th June. Again, Mexico can certainly win this match, but Sweden will not be easily brushed aside, and this will be a fairly evenly matched contest. We think Mexico will qualify in second place.
The problem for Mexico is that the schedule is set up in a way that isn’t particularly kind to them. If they finished second, in all likelihood they will face many people’s favourites to lift the trophy, Brazil. It would be a huge shock if Mexico come out victorious against Brazil.
If groups E and F don’t pan out as many expect, Mexico could feasibly face any one of Switzerland, Costa Rica or Serbia. Mexico will fancy their chances against any of these teams.
Still, we predict that Mexico will face Brazil in the last 16 and come up slightly short.
