Brazil v Mexico- World Cup 2018

Brazil vs Mexico World Cup Prediction 2nd July 2018 – 3.00 p.m

This should be a thoroughly entertaining round of sixteen tie because Mexico will throw themselves at Brazil. El Tri won’t be afraid to take this challenge on head to head and they have already shown what they are capable of as they played a huge part in knocking Germany out of the group stage by beating them. Brazil haven’t looked quite at their best, but this is now the second phase of the competition and the intensity has to be more dialled in. Our Brazil v Mexico prediction is for a South American triumph.

Brazil vs Mexico Odds*

Who will win Brazil vs Mexico?

We are looking forward to what should be an open game. Mexico are quick on the break and could threaten the Brazilian back line which has held pretty steady all tournament. The question about this one really is whether or not Brazil are able to up their attacking levels because they have been fairly below par so far on their quest to win the tournament.

Selecao to move ahead

Without having needed to break much of a sweat, certainly not in defence, Brazil have made it through to the round of 16 at Russia 2018. Brazil’s form in their last six games has seen them win five and draw one, so even though they haven’t performed particularly well at the 2018 World Cup, they know how to get the job done. Their defence has looked rock solid and they don’t look as if they are going to give up much to any team that they come up against in this tournament. Actually, the Brazilians have conceded just twice in their last 11 games so you can go and look at our Brazil v Mexico prediction of Brazil to win to nil at 5/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.). They have been a bit hit and miss going forward, but they have plenty of pace when they do break. Once all that comes together on top of their excellent defence then they will take some stopping. Because a clean sheet for Brazil in this game looks a reasonable outcome to expect in the correct score market a Brazil 2-0 option at 6/1 is a top prediction for Brazil v Mexico* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.).

So Brazil have better in them than they have shown so far and this is now the business end of the tournament and we will probably see a bit more intensity from them. Brazil could only manage a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in their first game of the tournament, and they just about managed to avoid a 0-0 draw against Costa Rica with a couple of late stoppage time goals. In their last game of the group which was against Serbia, Brazil hadn’t secured qualification but they did an excellent job in taking down their opponents 2-0. Neymar still looks as if he needs more recovery time to develop match sharpness after his injury, but the surprising thing about the fact is that Gabriel Jesus hasn’t lived up to expectations. Neymar is at 20/21 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.).

El Tri to fall short in quality not spirit

There is plenty to enjoy when Mexico play because they bring such energy and positivity to proceedings. It doesn’t matter who they are playing against it will just turn up and have a go. This is why this should be an exciting game but at the end of the day you would have to question whether or not the real quality is there from Mexico in order to cause a second major upset at this tournament. Mexico beat a disjointed Germany in their opening group stage match and they were good value for it. After taking a comfortable win against South Korea in their second match, against Sweden in their final group stage match things didn’t happen for Mexico.

Their backline was bullied by a physical side and El Tri lost 3-0 and that was a serious loss of momentum. Mexico could have won the group with a positive result in that game and avoided this clash with Brazil. Mexico haven’t been past the round of 16 since the 1986 World Cup and they are going to need to be at their best on the break to try and pull apart Brazil’s strong defence. Mexico have scored just three goals in their last four games, failing to score in two of those fixtures. Both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.) and that is a top Brazil v Mexico prediction. The underdogs will give it their best, but that best is likely to fall short.

Brazil vs Mexico Prediction

We have to side with Brazil even though there is likely going to be a really strong challenge coming in from Mexico. There is so much pace and threat in Brazil breaking forward, something that Germany lacked, that we can’t see El Tri pulling out an upset. Instead, we are focusing on Brazil to win to nil for our prediction.
