Mexico vs Sweden | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Mexico and Sweden meet in the final round of matches in Group F, with the Central American’s having already qualified for the knockout phase of the 2018 World Cup. However, with Sweden still fighting for their lives in order to join them, it promises to be a close encounter in Yekaterinburg, with little separating the duo ahead of kick-off.
Mexico will be hoping to make it three wins from three matches in Group F when they take on Sweden at the Ekaterinburg Arena on Wednesday afternoon, however with Sweden still hopeful of joining them in the Round of 16 in Russia, many are predicting a tight match ahead of kick-off. Despite Mexico being the favourites for victory, there are still plenty of attractive betting markets worth checking out before the match begins. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Mexico.
Mexico News & Form
Having defeated both Germany and South Korea already in Group F, Mexico can play without any pressure against Sweden, knowing that they are already guaranteed top spot. However, it remains to be seen as to whether manager Juan Carlos Osorio will make major changes to his starting eleven on Wednesday, with the likes of Hirving Lozano and Javier Hernandez potentially being rested for their next fixture. As a result, Raul Jiminez, Jonathon Dos Santos and Carlos Salcedo are all potential starters for the dedicated home team.
Sweden News & Form
A last-gasp winner from Germany handed Sweden their first defeat in Russia last time out, with the Scandinavian’s knowing that they will most likely need all three points against Mexico in order to qualify from Group F. Manager Janne Andersson is likely to stick with the same starting eleven that performed so admirably against the German’s, with John Guidetti perhaps the only change.
Mexico vs Sweden Head to Head
The two nations have met nine times in the past, with Sweden having won four of such matches, as well as registering three draws in the process. It was the Scandinavian’s who came out on top the last time the duo met also, running out narrow 1-0 winners in a friendly international back in 2009. However, with no matches having been played out between Mexico and Sweden in almost a decade, few conclusions can perhaps be made surrounding their head-to-head record.
Mexico vs Sweden Odds and Predictions
Given their 100% winning start to the competition, it perhaps comes as little surprise that Mexico are the favourites for victory on Wednesday with the majority of major online bookmakers. The Central American’s are available to back at odds of 7/5 with William Hill, while Sweden are priced at 23/10 on the same platform to claim a much-needed victory. Meanwhile, a draw after 90 minutes is also available at 23/10 with Paddy Power.
