Mexico v Bosnia Betting Preview
A very interesting match up this one. Both are heading to Brazil 2014 and both have a relatively good shot at getting out of their groups. El Tri look to have woken themselves up a bit, while Bosnia will be looking to head to their first ever World Cup finals full of confidence.

Mexico v Bosnia Betting Tips:
El Tri, after their struggles through World Cup qualification and going through four managers in the space of a year, look perhaps as if they have settled down a bit. They warmed up for the World Cup with a 3-0 win over Israel, followed by a 3-1 victory over Ecuador a few days later at the end of May. So there are signs that they are finding their shooting boots as Miguel Herrera takes them forward. They look to be a bit more cohesive and on target and they’ll need to be as they face Brazil, Croatia and Cameroon in Group A at the 2014 World Cup. Mexico are running as 5/4 third favourites to qualify behind Brazil and Croatia. The big question marks are going to be over their defence and whether or not that can stand up to any kind of serious pressure.
Still, it is probably worth looking at this one going over 2.5 goals, given Mexico’s goalscoring form and Marco Fabian could be worth a shot in the anytime goalscorer market after netting against both Israel and Ecuador. These two have played before, just in a couple of international friendly matches. Mexico scored a 2-0 win in their first meeting in 2011 and followed that up with a 2-1 win when they met at the end of May in 2012. So form is immediately with them here.
Bosnia and Herzegovina though will be confident, after Edin Dzeko scored a brace in a 2-1 win over the Ivory Coast in a friendly at the end of May. That was a much needed victory for them after losses against Argentina and Egypt prior to that. Without question, Man City’s Dzeko is their star man and they need him firing. Bosnia have to face Argentina again in Group F at the World Cup, but the Europeans are being backed at 11/13 ahead of Nigeria and Iran to qualify for the knockout stages. Bosnia topped their qualification group for Brazil 2014 ahead of Greece, finishing level on points but won out on goal difference after averaging three goals per game. Again, it should point to this one being open with the promise of goals.
This should be a pretty entertaining match. Mexico have put results together, but they aren’t a particularly strong defensive side. Bosnia are relatively solid at the back, but don’t have as much firepower available. Go over 2.5 goals as this could be open.
