USA vs Mexico (By: Frantik)
The Americans failed to get to the final part of the 2018 world Cup, which was held in 11 cities of Russia. In the group zone "of North and Central America" wards of the then Bruce Arena took the last fifth place by winning 3 match out of 10.
The failure in qualifying for the world Cup led to the change of the head coach. Instead Bruce Arena and team USA is now headed by David Sarachan. In preparation for the next major tournament, the Americans have recently picked up a sparring partners of strong opponents. Accordingly, the results were disappointing. Defeat from Brazil and Ireland with a total score of 1:4, as well as a draw with France 1:1, when the French were preparing to become world Champions.
Americans don't have a star cast. Stand out is that the defender of Newcastle United Deandre Yedlin, Midfielders Timothy Weah from Paris Saint Germain and Christian Pulišić from Borussia Dortmund. The latter, by the way, did not get into the application for a friendly game against the Mexicans.
The national team of Mexico at the world Cup in Russia showed its best side. In the group with Germany, Sweden and South Korea wards of the then 57-year-old Juan Carlos Osorio managed to beat the Germans and the Koreans with a total score of 3:1. Due to the fact that South Korea sensationally defeated Germany, even the defeat of the Mexicans in the match against the Swedes, allowed the "green" to break from second place in the 1/8 finals of the 2018 world Cup. To go further failed. Brazil thanks to the goals of Neymar and Firmino stopped the move of Mexico, which for the entire match struck only 1 blow to the goal.
Today, Ricardo Ferretti has been appointed acting head coach of the Mexican national team. 64-year-old Manager previously worked at the helm of the football club U.A.N.L.Tigres. The "green" in a friendly game will be weakened. For various reasons, will not play: Guardado, Javier Hernández, Ochoa, Giovani Dos Santos, Moreno, Vela, Herrera, Araujo. And the list goes on.
The composition of both teams will be suboptimal. I will add to it the friendly status of a duel where trainers will experiment and check the next reserve, and we will receive as a result mistakes from both parties. Mexicans intend to interrupt a series of three defeats in a row.
Teams often intersect with each other. For example, over the past 5 years the teams have met 6 times. Often, full-time duels are effective. The average total for two during this period is 2.83 goals per game. Given all this, the best option to play total goals.
