Betting tips Mexico vs Nigeria

Both sides arrive in the US for the first fixture of a busy summer period with Mexico facing 5 fixtures over the next 17 days and Nigeria taking part in 4 matches over a similar timeframe. 

Now ranked inside the top 10 of the FIFA World Rankings, Mexico could prove a dark horse come this winter´s World Cup in Qatar however they face CONCACF Nations League fixtures in the coming weeks with a home match against Suriname and a trip to Jamaica in their upcoming agenda. For their part, Nigeria arrives in the US ahead of important AFCON qualifying fixtures against Sierra Leone,  Mauritius and Guinea-Bissa to come later in June.

With both sides facing more important contests in the coming weeks, we expect both to use plenty of rotation in a fixture that provides both team with a good opportunity to build up their cohesion ahead of those more important fixtures to come.

Ultimately, we expect an open and potentially entertaining friendly here. While it has been a long season for many of the players involved in both squads, we expect the motivation of big matches to come in June should provide a little spark to this contest.

Mexico won 4:0 when these sides met in a friendly in California last summer and while a similarly heavy loss is not to be expected, Mexico should be expected to claim a narrow win in a potentially decent encounter in Texas.

Final score 2:1
