Germany-Mexico world cup 2018
Mexico begins its World Cup campaign in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday and El Tri could not have been handed a trickier opening fixture. Germany-Mexico World Cup 2018 and Juan Carlos Osorio’s men have the formidable task of facing Germany, the world’s number one team in the FIFA rankings and the defending World Cup champion. The Germans romped to victory in imperious fashion at the last tournament and Joachim Löw has supplemented that all-conquering side with some exciting young talent. Germany is the second favourite to win the World Cup, priced at +450 with Bet365 and other top sportsbooks, and it should go deep into this competition.
German reserve team thrashed Mexico
So, Germany-Mexico World Cup 2018 could turn into a bit of a damage limitation exercise for Mexico. Osorio’s team is strong and it should be able to qualify for the last 16 ahead of Sweden and South Korea. But it is unrealistic to expect it to beat Germany, these two sides met at the Confederations Cup last year. The German reserve team thrashed Mexico 4-1. Its first team features the likes of Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller and Timo Werner, and that represents a terrifying blend of steel and flair.
As such, Mexico is the +525 underdog with Bethard in this game, while the Germans are priced at -200 to secure victory. Germany -1 on the handicap line is likely to be a popular bet at +135 with Bethard, but patriotic Mexican fans might consider Mexico +1 at odds of +160. Another option might be to go for over 2.5 goals in the game, priced at -110 with Bet365. There will be a raft of brilliant attacking talent on the pitch, including Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos, plus the likes of Muller, Ozil and Werner, so we should be in for an open and exciting contest between two technically strong teams.
