Mexico are playing just north of their border, playing in the USA just months after they were awarded the rights to the 2026 World Cup. While that’s a way down the line, preparing for that tournament is something the Mexicans will look to do.

They come in to this encounter looking to experiment, as they try to find some new blood for the next campaign. Many of their top stars are sitting out in this clash, as they’re relying on a domestic-based squad to make this short trip, rather than calling back their European stars here.

The Mexicans had a good World Cup before being knocked out by Brazil in the round of 16. Most notably, this is a clear indication that the team is in great form and will be coming to show their prowess in this matchup.

Uruguay haven’t given their top stars a break, although they have left Edinson Cavani behind for this trip to the States. They have an impressive side assembled, which includes Diego Godin and Luis Suarez.

Mexico vs Uruguay: Head-to-Head

  • The last five h2h meetings have been interesting with alternating wins by both sides.
  • Mexico have won 3 matches in the last 5 h2h meetings, Uruguay have won twice.

Mexico vs Uruguay: Prediction

Unsurprisingly, Uruguay are favorites for this clash given that their squad looks far superior. Additionally, they want to kick off preparations for the Copa America next summer with a high notch.

Uruguay have won seven of their last eight matches, so we’re backing them to claim a win in this encounter. A Uruguay win is our tip here, while we’re backing them to claim a 2-1 victory.

However, Mexico are also in good form and will not go down easily. In this matchup, we may see both teams finding the back of each other’s net. Also, we cannot rule out the fact that Mexico had a longer run in the world cup which may have toughened them.
