Confederations Cup Group A: Mexico to show class against Kiwis again

Mexico v New Zealand tips

FootyOn provide Mexico v New Zealand tips ahead of their second 2017 Confederations Cup Group A game.

Live on Wednesday at 19:00 BST on ITV4.

After gaining a dramatic late draw against Euro 2016 champions Portugal, betway’s tasty 8/1 title chances El Tri take on the Kiwis, who lost 2-0 to tournament hosts Russia.

These two nations have met six times before at senior level, including five times this decade.

Read on for our Mexico v New Zealand tips…

Mexico to win and both teams to score

The Aztecs had to both score and concede against Portugal in their 2-2 draw on Sunday, and history in head-to-heads with New Zealand suggests they’ll do so again.

In their last three meetings with the Kiwis, Mexico have beaten them with both team finding the net.

That included most recently in a friendly last October when they triumphed 2-1, and in a 2014 World Cup play-off – the latter being 5-1 and 4-2 victories.

Mexico are a very tasty 11/4 with BetVictor to win with both teams scoring again.

Giovani dos Santos to score anytime

Giovani dos Santos anytime scorer odds feature in our Mexico v New Zealand tips.

Former Tottenham and Barcelona attacker Dos Santos has a decent record against the All Whites, having score three times against them.

One of which was in their most recent meeting, while he bagged a brace against them in a 2011 friendly.

Current LA Galaxy star Dos Santos came off the bench against Portugal, and will be hoping for a starting place this time around against easier opposition.

He is 11/10 with Sky Bet to score anytime.

Mexico to score 2-plus in first-half

A 7/4 Sky Bet special is on offer for the Mexicans to score twice or more in the opening half.

It is hugely enticing given that they have achieved this feat in three of their last four meetings with New Zealand.

On top of that, the Aztecs are also nearly 100 places higher than the Kiwis in the FIFA world rankings at number 18, which goes to show the gulf in quality between these two nations.
