The battle for CONCACAF FIFA World Cup Qualifiers resumes, the United States national team travels to Mexico City to take on the hosts this Thursday.
Mexico has faced a bumpy ride so far in round 3 of the qualifiers, losing 2 of the 11 games that it has played so far. The team is tied at points with their opponents, the United States, and is currently at the third spot on the points table. A win in this game, along with a loss for Costa Rica and Panama, will guarantee a spot for the El Tri on its 8th consecutive finals appearance.
Coach Gerardo Martino has been under intense scrutiny, and his failure to instill confidence within the team has made the calls for his suspension grow louder. The Argentinian has tried to implement the same Tiki-Taka brand of football, that made him popular as Barcelona coach but has so far failed to make an impact. However, the fact that it beat Jamaica 1-0 in its last game would have brought in some confidence within the camp.
Coming to the visitors, it is just 4 points away from guaranteeing a direct place at the World Cup finals in Qatar. However, the team has come under intense scrutiny for its performance, especially in away games. The United States has won just 1 of its last 5 away games, and with 2 of its last 3 games are to be played on the road, it looks like an uphill task for coach Gregg Berhalter. USA beat Honduras in its last game by a margin of 3-0 and will be traveling to Mexico City on a high.
However, given the climate conditions of the stadium, most football betting sites are predicting a difficult outing for the team.
Match prediction and betting tips for Mexico vs the USA, FIFA World Cup Qualifiers CONCACAF 2019-2022. The match is going to be played at the Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, on 24th March 2022.
The hosts have no major injury concerns and will be able to select from a relatively full squad. Most of its players are in good form, with Raul Jimenez, Alexis Vega, and Henry Martin finding themselves amongst goals. Jesus Corona and Hirving Lozano have performed well for their respective clubs and will be looking to contribute at the National level as well.
Unfortunately, the visitors are likely to miss out on Weston McKinnie, Sergino Dest, and Matt Turner, all of whom are injured. Giovanni Reyna is likely to make a comeback, along with Erik Palmer-Brown and Aaron Long.
Given the altitude of the ground, the visitors are likely to have a hard time scoring in this game, but we do see them netting the ball once. With a lot at stake, both the teams are likely to go all-in with their efforts, and none gaining an upper hand when the final whistle blows.
Bet on a draw.
