USA vs Mexico
Date: Wednesday, 12 September 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Nissan Stadium, Nashville.
United States and Mexico decided to shift the attention to younger players ahead of challenges to come.
Recent friendlies showed it will be a mountain to climb for both nations if they are to avoid downswings in their form, but both Dave Sarachan and Ricardo Ferretti are convinced it is t just the way to go.
Luis Suarez and his Uruguay caused Mexican headaches on Friday evening when they stormed 4-1 past El Tri on the neutral venue in Houston.
Raul Jimenez scored the only goal for the Mexican outfit whose mixed-up defensive line revealed vulnerability against Uruguay.
United States left a much better impression against Brazil even though they did suffer a defeat at the end.
Nonetheless, Dave Sarachan saw a decent second-half display from his men and there are no doubts such showing will inspire the USMNT to try and pick up a positive result against the vulnerable opposition here.
USA vs Mexico: Head-to-head
- Mexico lead the head to head tie by 11 wins ahead of 69th encounter with United States.
- El Tri won two and drew one of last three encounters with the Yanks.
- Both teams scored in four of last five H2H affairs.
USA vs Mexico: Prediction
Mexico have several players that featured the Toulon Youth Festival this summer in France (narrow loss to England in final). They can hardly be considered massive favourites against the United States here especially after suffering a disastrous loss to Uruguay on Friday evening.
We believe the Yanks, who held the likes of France to a 1-1 draw in a friendly this summer, have what it takes to keep things tight at the back against the weakened Mexican outfit. You can back the USMNT not to lose at the odds of 1.75. The alternative pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.65.
