Match Preview

Mexico come into this match brimming with confidence after a perfect start to Group F and a draw here will be enough to secure top spot. Sweden meanwhile, started well with a win over South Korea but then lost spectacularly to a last-gasp German goal, and now need a positive result here to maintain hopes of progressing.
After their superb victory over reigning World Cup (WC) champions Germany, Mexico have proved they now have the required tenacity and defensive discipline to compliment their already impressive attacking threat – which may see them become real contenders to lift the cup. Their coach Juan Carlos Osorio will look for a tight and patient display from his side here knowing a point is enough to qualify top.
Sweden have already exceeded pre-tournament expectations by fans and pundits alike, and have produced some dogged performances so far. They came within seconds of securing their place in the last-16, but that loss is a hammerblow for the Swedes and qualification for the knockout stages is now out of their hands.
In terms of the H2H, Sweden have the edge (W2, D1, L1) – although three of the four meetings were friendlies. In their only previous competitive match, Sweden were hosts of the 1958 WC and beat Mexico 3-0 in the group stages.
Players to watch: Hirving Lozano (MEX) could pose the biggest threat to Sweden with his surging runs and eye for goal (one goal, one assist).
As captain, Andreas Granqvist (SWE) always gives his all and scored the winner against South Korea.
Stat attack: Sweden have kept three clean sheets in their last five matches, and six in their last ten (all competitions).
Mexico have only lost two of their last ten matches in all competitions (W6, D2, L2).
Both sides have seen only one of their last five matches finish with both teams scoring.
