Mexico – Sweden betting tips for today, June 27, 2018.
Football: World Cup – Group F
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 0:3 WON!!!
|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.|
