Fresh from winning another Concacaf Gold Cup title, Mexico’s friendly against Australia at the weekend didn’t exactly go to plan, with El Tri having to come from 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw at AT&T Stadium in Texas. That said, Mexico are still enjoying a run of just one defeat in their last eight games, so confidence will be high throughout the squad.
Uzbekistan head to Mercedes-Benz Stadium off the back of a 3-0 defeat to the United States. However, the scoreline doesn’t tell the whole story, with the visitors managing 15 shots, while the USMNT needed goals from Ricardo Pepi and Christian Pulisic in second-half stoppage time to put some gloss on the scoreline. Uzbekistan have won just one of their last five matches, scoring only two goals during that time, but will still provide Mexico with an adequate test.

Mexico vs Uzbekistan match tip
There’s a pretty sizeable gulf in quality between these two sides to begin with, but add in that Mexico have win six of their last eight games — with five of them to nil — and Uzbekistan have lost their last two without conceding a goal, and it feels very much like El Tri will enjoy a comfortable evening in Atlanta.
Mexico vs Uzbekistan Bet-Builder tip
As mentioned, a Mexico win with a Gimenez goal are not unreasonable expectations. But while El Tri should maintain total control of the match, Uzbekistan showed against the USMNT that they’re not to be underestimated, so don’t put everything on Mexico running away with the scoreline.
Mexico have won six of their last eight matches.
Gimenez scored the winner in the Gold Cup final in July.
Mexico have scored more than twice in a single match just once in their last five outings.
Mexico vs Uzbekistan team news
Mexico will likely field a heavily rotated XI from that which drew with Australia to keep players sharp. By contrast, Uzbekistan could stick with their lineup from the USA match after a positive performance.
