Mexico vs Sweden Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Another exciting match awaits the football fans as Mexico will face Sweden at the Central Stadium (Yekaterinburg). Judging by their recent matches, we are in for a real treat full of chances, goals, and betting opportunities.
Mexico is placed first in Group F with two wins. First, they made one of the biggest upsets of the World Cup when they defeated Germany in the first round, and in the second round, they triumphed over South Korea. With six points they are likely to progress to the next phase of the competition. A draw or a win would be enough for them to go to the knock-out phase. The only way that they get eliminated from the competition is if they lose this clash with a huge margin. They beat South Korea by the score of 2-1. The South Koreans did not start the match the way that they would expect and as a result, made lots of mistakes. One of those mistakes led to a penalty kick for Mexico mid-first half. Vela took his chance and scored. Chicharito of Mexico added another goal for his team mid-second half. Son Heung-Min of South Korea managed to reduce the lead by one in the third minute of the second half stoppage time, thus providing some hope of a comeback. In the end, the result stayed at 1-2.
Sweden is placed third in the group with three points from their win over South Korea. In the previous round, they faced Germany and were defeated by the score of 2-1. The Swedes proved to be a tough opponent and gave the Germans a run for their money. The Swedes showed their composure and waited for their chances. As a result, they managed to score first in the thirty-second minute and make the Germans change their playstyle. Just three minutes into the second half, Reus scored and set the result to 1-1. In the eighty-second minute of the game, Boateng was sent off for the second yellow, and at that moment it seemed like the biggest upset of the tournament is about to happen. When all seemed lost, Toni Kroos fires it from a free kick in the fifth minute of the second half stoppage time. The ball goes into the net and Germany takes all three points. If Kroos had not scored, Sweden would have eliminated Germany from the competition.
The two teams have played a total of three matches against each other. The first one was played way back in 1958, the second in 2005, and the most recent one occurred in 2009. Of those three clashes, Sweden has won two and the remaining one ended a 0-0 draw. It is worth noting that in those three matches, Sweden has scored four goals while Mexico failed to score a single one. Will they end their streak in the upcoming event, remains to be seen? Both teams have a lot to lose and even more to gain from a win here. Without any doubt, we are in for a full ninety minutes of quality football.
