Mexico vs Croatia – International Friendly
Sunday 28th May 00:30, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Mexico and Croatia lock horns in Los Angeles tomorrow for an intentional friendly, and both squads are full of experienced, top quality players so we should be in for a great game.
Neither side have the home advantage in this game, but Mexico will be far more used to the temperature and climate that the USA will provide, and that will surely give them a slight edge this weekend.
Mexico head into the game as the form favourites after they remained unbeaten in their last six matches, winning five and drawing one. Croatia have been hit and miss in their last six matches, winning three and losing three, with both teams playing their last games in March.
Some very familiar faces will take to the field tomorrow, with the likes of Javier Hernández, Giovani dos Santos, Andrés Guardado and even the 38-year old former Barcelona defender Rafael Márquez representing Mexico.
Croatia have the likes of Mario Mandžukić, Mateo Kovačić, Ivan Rakitić, Luka Modrić, and Ivan Perišić at their disposal, so there will be an abundance of creativity and hopefully goals in this one.
With this being a friendly that is being played in the USA I wonder how much of an advantage Mexico will have, in what could be a draining 90 minutes.
With that in mind I’m backing Mexico to pick up a narrow win and a clean sheet, with under 2.5 goals being scored and Hernandez to score first.
