Place: the USA. Pasadena (State California). Rose Bowl Arena.
Date: on the 29th of May, 2018 (Tuesday)
Match start: 02:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Friendly match.
Mexico (the head coach Juan Carlos Osorio)
In the course of getting ready for the FIFA World Cup in Russia that will start on the 14th of June Mexico will play three friendly matches with Wales (on the 29th of May, Pasadena, the USA), Scotland (on the 3rd of June, Mexico City) and Denmark (on the 9th of June, Brøndby). As we see, between the second and third matches there is a break in six days. During this time Juan Carlos Osorio’s team will move from Mexico City to Brøndby, Denmark.
And now the most popular national team of CONCACAF in the status of the hosts of Rose Bowl Arena will host Wales. What will Mexican team be in the match against Wales and then in three subsequent matches of the group stage of the World Cup in Moscow (on the 17th of June), Rostov (on the 23rd of June) and Yekaterinburg (on the 27th of June) against, respectively, Germany, South Korea and Sweden?
According to the experts and football analysts, the goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, the full back Héctor Moreno, holding halfback Andrés Guardado and, of course, the top goal-scorer of the team Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) will be the main heroes of the White and Greens.
Wales (the head coach Ryan Giggs)
For Mexico the presence of Chicharito in the starting lineup is similar to Lionel Messi’s participation as the football player of Argentina, as these are the players who can change an outcome of the match in favor of the team at the crucial moment.
Alas! This time so desired opposition of two goal-scorers won’t happen as now Gareth Bale is training in Real Madrid for the Kiev Champions League final against Liverpool (on the 26th of May).
We will remind you that during the last qualification campaign Wales was fighting for the participation in additional play-off matches. However during the most decisive match at home arena in Cardiff the Reds have lost to Ireland (0:1) and as a result have taken only the third place. At that World Cup 2018 for Chris Coleman’s team has ended and very soon Ryan Giggs became the new head coach of Wales.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Mexico vs Wales
According to experts, the bright favorite of the forthcoming match are nominal hosts of Rose Bowl. The bookmaker quotation on possible victory of the best national team of CONCACAF is 1.60. Of course, in this case W2 is much more – 6.80.
By analogy with a friendly match on Stade de France with participation of the Tricolores and the national team of Ireland, in this pair we have received a meeting of teams with absolutely different factor of motivation.
And if the team of Juan Carlos Osorio is right now getting ready to the forthcoming World Cup in Russia, then for the new team of Ryan Giggs the victory or defeat in Pasadena has no value. Now Wales is getting ready for autumn start of the new qualification campaign EURO-2020.
