Mexico to win

Wales vs Mexico isn’t a fixture that has an odds on favourite; it’s hard to look past another defeat for Ryan Giggs-less Wales. Why? Well, Mexico are one of the world’s most in-form sides right now. They’re the holders of the Gold Cup, in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Nations League and haven’t lost a match since September 2019; that’s a run of 10 games. Wales meanwhile are coming off the back of a defeat and are yet to beat Mexico in each of their past four attempts.

Alan Pulido to Score Anytime

Mexico’s usual go-to scorer, Raul Jimenez isn’t available to play in this round of fixtures after suffering that sickening head injury earlier in the season. Kansas City forward Alan Pulido is tipped to start as his replacement with Hirving Lozano and Rodolfo Pizarro flanking him. The MLS is currently in its pre-season phase but throughout the last campaign, Pulido bagged a goal every 144 minutes. He’s likely to have service and it’s highly plausible he’ll take a chance if a couple come his way.

Both teams not to score

Making the suggestion that Wales won’t find the net might raise an eyebrow to some. They’ve just crafted a beautiful goal against Belgium and boast the likes of Gareth Bale who can score out of nothing but Mexico don’t give much away. They’ve kept three clean sheets in their last five and only conceded seven goals across their last 10 matches. Wales are hardly a juggernaut in attack either; they’ve scored more than one goal in just two of their previous 10 fixtures.

Wales vs Mexico Preview: El Tri to continue unbeaten run

Wales

The Welsh preparation for this round of fixtures hasn’t been ideal with gaffer Giggs not present at the camp courtesy of his pending off-field issues. Throw in the fact experienced defender Ben Davies dropped out of the squad due to injury and you could forgive a disjointed performance. That’s not what happened against Belgium though; they just lost to the better team. Wales set up without a recognised centre forward and it worked wonders for the opening goal. Against Mexico though, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the in-form Kieffer Moore come in to allow a more direct approach. That would give the team the opportunity to breach Mexico’s high press with Bale and Dan James joining the attacks.

Mexico

Mexico won’t have it all their own way against Wales. They are missing a key player in Jimenez but should have more than enough in the team to get the job done. This match will be Mexico’s first of 2021 and, particularly for the four MLS players in the squad, they could have that much more energy in the legs. We’ve touched on the probable front three already, who will be a threat, and with Atletico Madrid man Hector Herrera and Orbelin Pineda of Cruz Azul likely to play in the middle of the park Wales will have a very challenging 90 minutes. If Mexico win the midfield battle – as we expect – they will win the game.
