Mexico vs Chile Match Preview
Mexico’s incredible run of losing out in the Second Round of FIFA World Cup tournaments continued this summer. After beating Germany on the opening day, El Tricolor were in pole position to qualify from the group as leaders after following up with a win over South Korea, only for Sweden to hammer them and set up a second round tie with Brazil. The quality of the South American side shone through and the Central Americans were once again dumped out in the Round of 16.
It’s been a very poor return to action since then for El Tri, with Tata Martino struggling to get the best out of an ever-changing squad. In their six friendly fixtures since the World Cup in Russia, Mexico have lost on five occasions, managing only one win against Costa Rica and going down in particularly humiliating defeats to the USA and Uruguay. Can they bounce back to form and overcome a strong Chile outfit here at 6/4 with William Hill.
Chile managed to end their long wait to get their hands in some silverware four years ago when, on the back of a fine campaign at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil they managed to finally win the Copa America and the 44th time of asking. Then, one year later in the Copa America Centenario held in the USA they managed to win the trophy for a second successive time, leading many to believe a period of dominance was setting in for the South American nation.
But things haven’t quite worked out that way. A disastrous qualifying campaign saw la Roja fail to qualify for last summer’s World Cup in Russia and saw Reinaldo Rueda come in as the new head coach in January of 2018. Although the former Colombia coach has not yet had the chance to lead his side in competitive action, it’s been a real mixed bag of results in friendly fixtures thus far. You can back them for a victory here at 21/10 with Paddy Power.
We’re backing both teams to find the net in this game. Mexico haven’t been in the best attacking form of late but they come up against a rather leaky Chile defence here who have conceded four in their last two games but also managed to find the net six times. With the likes of Nicolas Castillo, Javier Hernandez and Raul Jimenez likely to play some part in this game we can’t resist the 5/6 odds from Bet365 on both teams to score.
Mexico’s form since the World Cup has been very poor indeed and although Chile are still finding their feet under Reinaldo Rueda, their results have undoubtedly been better than El Tricolor and as such we can see real value in backing them on the draw; no bet tip at odds of 21/20 with William Hill here.
