Mexico v Wales Preview & Tips (27th May)
Mexico and Wales lock horns on May 27, Sunday, for a friendly match. Kick-off is at 19:05 GMT.
Mexico’s preparation for the London Olympics on July continues with a friendly against Wales on Sunday. They do so without the services of Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez who will be resting as a part of a club and national team agreement. After a successful showing in the 2010 World Cup and a majestic 2011 English Premier League season, Chicharito struggled in the past few months. And while an Olympic showing may do his form good, the FMF definitely wants a fresher Javier Hernandez come the 2014 WC qualification.
No Chicharito for the Olympics, and in this match against Wales, there will be no Carlos Vela. Chepo de la Torre didn’t have a choice with regards to Vela as the Real Sociedad forward declined to participate in the said tournament. There are no hints of commitment issues on the part of Vela thankfully, but El Tri fans are definitely looking out for developments with regards to Vela’s presence.
Wales didn’t have a good start to the year after Gary Speed’s death. Speed was pivotal in the making of a competitive Wales side and his passing away – at a time when the Welsh national side was looking towards 2014 qualification – could somehow stifle Wale’s progress. Taking over his position is fellow Welshman Chris Coleman. Coleman will be tasked to continue what Speed started towards the 2014 World Cup.
Coleman will be without several marquee players against Mexico this Sunday. Gareth Bale is one of them. Bale withdrew due to injuries, and with questions hanging around with regards to his commitment to the national team, Bale’s return is now an awaited happening.
Mexico v Wales Betting Preview
Coming off defeats in their respective international friendlies, Mexico and Wales will be keen to bounce back and kick-start the second half of this year with a win. Both teams look capable of doing so inasmuch that they are evenly matched. Absences on both sides favour the Mexicans so far, but don’t expect the Welshmen to lose without a fight.
Verdict: A narrow Mexico win at 2-1.
Mexico is at 1/2 to win, and 15/2 to earn a victory with a 2-1 scoreline. The game looks like it’s going to go over 2.5 goals at 9/10, but with several absences that minimizes the game’s goalscoring potential, it could also end under 2.5 goals at the same 9/10 odds. Javier Hernandez, no matter the form he is coming from, is still this game’s most capable scorer. He is at 21/20 to score anytime, 15/4 to score first.
