Belgium vs Mexico Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Belgian national squad will collide with the Mexican on Friday evening at King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels. The two sides have the highest aspirations in the upcoming World Cup 2018 as both sides possess tremendous quality and potential, so it would be a surprise to see the two teams in top eight or even higher in Russia, particularly the hosts.
Belgium walked through their group in qualifiers – they had a relatively easy job in every match until they secured the World Cup participation. Their manager is currently experimenting with 3-4-3 formation which is highly criticized, so he might shuffle things up in the upcoming friendly match. The Red Devils are capable of beating every team on the planet for sure, particularly after checking the optimal XI of their squad. However, the team lacks chemistry at this point so this friendly international game is the perfect opportunity to work on it.
Mexico have reached the World Cup after competing mostly with USA, Panama and Honduras in their CONCACAF group. El Tri will aim to stun the football public on the World Cup, particularly after winning the goal medal back in the Olympics. The pressure is high on the Mexican players, but they have certainly enough quality to reach the top eight with a bit of luck. Mexico have gone 11 consecutive matches without a draw.
Belgium scored at least one goal in their last 3 matches and Mexico in their last 13 matches. This is going to be the first recent meeting of the two sides. They met back in the 90s last time out, when they drew 2-2.
Belgium have several missing players for the match against Mexico. Yannick Carrasco, Marouane Fellaini, Toby Alderweireld and Vincent Kompan are players who will not play on Friday night. Almost all other players are available to play and they are highly motivated to win this international friendly.
On the other side Mexico have almost all players available for this friendly clash and all of them are eager to beat strong Belgium.
Possible starting lineups
Belgium: Courtois; Vermaelen, Vertonghen, Ciman; Chadli, Witsel, De Bruyne, Meunier; Hazard; Mertens, Lukaku
Mexico: Ochoa; Salcedo, Ayala, Moreno, Layun; Santos, herrera; Vela, Santos, Lozano; Chicharito
Belgium vs Mexico Prediction
We expect one interesting and exciting football game with lots of scoring chances on the both sides. Both teams are highly motivated to play aggressive and attractive football and they will try to score from the first minute. Belgium are in fantastic run and they are unbeaten in 13 matches. This time they have to play without several key players so this game is going to be a true test before World Cup. On the other side Mexico like to play offensive football but they don't play very well away from home. Mexico have only won two of their last eight away matches and their main objective for the match will be to score a goal more. It will be an open and dynamic game with several good scoring chances for the both teams.
