Mexico’s swashbuckling showings have been a breath of fresh air in Russia and with qualification not yet sealed, back them to make it three wins in a row against Sweden.
Mexico to win @ 27/20
El Tri have recorded victories over both Germany and South Korea to set the pace in Group F but the various permutations mean they could still miss out on the second round.
They are set to face a Sweden team who won their opener against the Koreans but were left with nothing from a dogged performance against Die Mannschaft.
The Blugalt will again adopt a solid approach with the intention of hitting their opponents on the break but Mexico’s movement has been stunning in Russia and they should have too much.
Mexico – 1 handicap @ 7/2
It is worth noting that both of Mexico’s wins to date came by a single goal margin, as did one of their victories in the warm-up games.
Although good on the break and sharp at the back, they are still not totally watertight and can take risks.
With attack Juan Carlos Osorio’s modus operandi, I can see them scoring at least twice but leaving gaps that could be exploited occasionally by the Swedes.
