Mexico will play their last friendly in Girona, Spain, ahead of their trip to the World Cup in Qatar later this week. The South Americans go head to head with Sweden in a friendly on Wednesday evening. Mexico come in this game on the back of a 4-0 win over Iraq earlier last week, which was the first time they played since September. Before this win, Wednesday's home side had lost two of their last three games to give perspective. On the other hand, Sweden's Nations League campaign was as disappointing as the fact that they have not qualified for the biggest event in football. After the win over Slovenia in the first game week, Sweden went on to lose four games and ended the campaign with a draw, which left them reeling in the last spot in their group.

Mexico vs Sweden Betting Tips: BTTS

Mexico has not only lost the last three meetings with Sweden, but they have also failed to score in each of those games too. This is a very strong pattern to fall for, but Sweden's exceptionally poor form might change the fortunes ahead of Wednesday. We believe that this is Mexico's chance to set the right tone ahead of the World Cup and they will at least get a draw, if not a win, this week against Sweden. Nevertheless, our best betting pick for this game would be both sides scoring as Mexico has really grown after the previous losses to this counterpart, while Sweden has conceded against four of their last five opponents in very easy fashion.

Mexico Team News

There are two players to keep an eye on, on this Mexican side, ahead of the impending World Cup 2022. First and foremost is left-winger Alexis Vega. The number ten has scored in each of the last two games for Mexico and comes into this game with an exceptional form of creating as well as defending from the front too. He could be really a pain for Sweden to defend on the left flank. On the other hand, Edson Alvarez is one name which is linked to many European heavyweight clubs since the last two transfer windows. The Ajax defensive midfielder is growing to be one of the best pivots in world football, and this World Cup could be his opportunity for making a statement of intent ahead of the winter transfer window.

Players to watch: Alexis Vega, Edson Alvarez

Sweden Team News

This Sweden side has so many young gems, that it is a pity the World Cup will not be an audience to witness them. Starting with Alexander Isak, who is touted to be the successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic upfront. Isak made his mark in the Euro 2021 and for Real Sociedad in La Liga, before moving to the Premier League with Newcastle United. Another name which will feature in this game and possibly light it up will be Dejan Kulusevski. The ex-Juventus forward has been a revelation under Antonio Conte in Tottenham and the World Cup will surely miss his talent later this November. Kulusevski and Isak are an example of why this team could be one of those to watch out for, later next year as well as in the next European Championships.

Players to watch: Alexander Isak, Dejan Kulusevski
