Belgium vs Mexico
Date: 10th November 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Roi Baudouin (Bruxelles).
Belgium confirmed the favourites tag by cruising past their rivals in the qualifying group H with nine wins and a draw in ten matches.
They’ll be looking to make it seven wins on the trot this Friday when they host another World Cup contestant Mexico in the international friendly at Stade Roi Baudouin.
Roberto Martinez has the enormous amount of quality and talent in his squad and the Belgian citizens finally expect a deep run at the biggest stage.
The upcoming friendlies with Mexico and Japan will certainly represent a massive challenge for all players to prove they have what it takes to be part of the team in Russia and there are no doubts they’ll be highly motivated to produce the best showing even though these will only be friendlies.
The Mexicans have also been dominant in their respective campaign topping the CONCACAF qualifying zone (final round) by five points ahead of the second-placed Costa Rica.
However, Osorio’s men failed to keep the net untouched in last three matches and they allowed as many as three goals in the October’s loss in Honduras.
Belgium vs Mexico: Head to head
The two sides took on each other four times over the history, but the last meeting took place at the World Cup in France 1998 when they shared spoils by playing a 2-2 draw in the group phase.
Each of the last three meetings saw at least three goals scored and we expect the high-scoring trend to be continued this Friday.
