            Mexico vs Brazil: Preview: Prediction & Betting Tips

            Mexico and Brazil travel to USA for one final friendly before they both compete in the Copa America this summer looking for silverware.

            Date: 09/06/24

            Kick-off time: 1:30

            Venue: Kyle Field

            This friendly will provide both managers the opportunity to take a last look at their squads before the tournament begins. Equally, players will be hoping to impress and push for positions in the team. Mexico have never won the Copa America, though they have finished as runners-up on two occasions, firstly in 1993 and again in 2001. A win against Brazil would give them a second consecutive win and some much-needed momentum heading into their first group game against Jamaica. They will feel good about advancing from a group which also contains Venezuela and Ecuador.

            Brazil have plenty of talent in their team, but there are some question marks surrounding the team, and they come into this tournament in mixed form having won just one of their last six games, so they will be desperate to pick up another against Mexico. They will be hoping to win their 10th Copa America final, and go one step further than they did last time after they were defeated 1-0 in the final by Argentina.

            Despite the number of quality attacking threats Brazil possess, they have been mostly inconsistent in front of goal in recent months. Their last game saw them score three in a 3-3 draw against Spain, but they only scored two in the four games prior. Their most dangerous outlet is likely to be Vinicius Jr, with his Real Madrid teammate Rodrygo providing support. For their club, the pair have combined for 36 goals in all competitions. However, they will look to end their preparations on a high, and they will be confident in putting in a good performance against a Mexico side recently disappointed by a Nations League final loss.

            These two countries have met 41 times in the past. Brazil, as expected, have been the superior side, winning 24 to Mexico’s 10. They are currently in the midst of a four-game unbeaten streak against their opponents with Mexico’s last victory coming in an international friendly in 2012. The last game between the pair came in the 2018 World Cup Round of 16. Brazil were 2-0 winners with Neymar and Roberto Firmino the second half goalscorers.

            West Ham’s Edson Alvarez will likely play a big role and is the only Premier League representative in the squad. Raul Jimenez of Fulham was not selected.

            Man City goalkeeper Ederson misses out through injury as he suffered from a fractured eye socket. There are plenty of Premier League players involved, including Lucas Paqueta, Bruno Guimaraes and Douglas Luiz in midfield. Gabriel Martinelli has also been selected.

            Mexico

            In their last four games, Mexico have won two and lost two. It has been a mixed stretch for Mexico in recent months, which included them missing out on winning the CONCACAF Nations League. The first game of this run was a friendly game against Colombia. They lost 3-2 late in dramatic fashion. Mexico struck first, however, as they went 1-0 then 2-0 up shortly after the restart. Colombia pulled one back through Andres Reyes, before Roger Martinez equalised. The winner came from Andres Gomez in the 92nd minute.

            They then took on Panama in the Nations League semi-final, dispatching them 3-0 to book their place in the final of the tournament. They attempted less shots and held less possession, but were accurate in their shooting. All six of their attempts were on target. The first goal came before half-time through West Ham’s Edson Alvarez. They doubled the lead three minutes later with a goal by Julian Quinones, before Orbelin Pineda completed the scoring midway through the second half.

            This set up a final with USA, but they were defeated 2-0. Tyler Adams broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, and Gio Reyna doubled their advantage shortly into the second half. Mexico struggled to test the goalkeeper, managing just two shots on target. They responded to this disappointment with a 1-0 win in their most recent game against Bolivia. Efrain Alvarez scored the only goal of the game. Before they take on Brazil, they will face Uruguay in another friendly on Thursday.

            Brazil

            In their last five games, Brazil have won one, drawn one and lost three. It has been a poor run of form for Brazil as they look ahead to the Copa America. This stretch began with three consecutive defeats, the first of which being a 2-0 loss at Uruguay back in October. It was an uncharacteristic performance from Brazil who enjoyed more possession but managed just two attempts and zero on target. Uruguay took advantage of their only shots on goal, with Darwin Nunez and Nicolas de la Cruz on the scoresheet.

            Another loss followed, this time 2-1 at Colombia. Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli gave them an early fourth minute lead, but Luis Diaz of Liverpool scored two in four second half minutes to flip the game on its head. The hosts had 10 shots on target as the Brazilians struggled at the back again. Their final loss of the streak was against rivals Argentina as they were defeated 1-0. There was not much to split the two teams, but Nicolas Otamendi’s 63rd minute goal proved the difference. Joelinton saw red late for Brazil.

            They responded well with a 1-0 victory against England at Wembley. Seventeen-year old Endrick stole the headlines as he scored his first goal for the country in the win. Their most recent game was a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain. Rodri put their opponents ahead from the penalty spot, and Dani Olmo doubled their advantage. Rodrygo pulled one back before the break. The equaliser came shortly after the restart through Endrick. Spain thought they snatched victory with another Rodri spot kick, but Lucas Paqueta converted a penalty deep into stoppage time.
