Wales vs Mexico: Predictions
Despite taking an early 1-0 lead through Harry Wilson, the Dragons succumb to a 3-1 loss in their opening World Cup qualifying match, though there is little shame in losing to Roberto Martinez’s side, who are currently ranked No.1 in the world. Wales face another tough opponent this weekend, with Mexico ranked ninth in the world and maintaining an unbeaten record against their hosts to date.
For Mexico, this is the penultimate game before they start their CONCACAF Nations League campaign in June, while the CONCACAF Gold Cup follows shortly after in July. Tata Martino’s men are currently enjoying a 10-game unbeaten run dating back to September 2019, during which time they’ve beaten the likes of the Netherlands, Japan and South Korea.
Though only a friendly, this match represents a stern test of both nations’ credentials ahead of some important fixtures throughout the rest of this year.
Wales vs Mexico: Match Stats
Wales have failed to score just once in their last 13 games, during which time they’ve only lost once as well — the 3-1 defeat to Belgium last time out. Harry Wilson has four goals and nine assists to his name for Cardiff City in the Championship this season and has found the net in each of his last two caps for Wales.
Mexico have scored at least two goals in nine of their last 10 matches, remaining unbeaten during that time. Hirving Lozano is enjoying a stellar season with Napoli, scoring 13 goals across all competitions. He scored his 11th international goal in a 2-0 win over Japan in Mexico’s last match in November.
