This fixture between Canada and Mexico is one of the biggest of this group. Both sides are considered to be the strongest in the region but Mexico are sitting at the top of the standings as it stands. This fixture could have a major impact on how everything turns out in these qualifiers which makes it a tough fixture to predict.

The current constitution

Mexico sitting pretty at the top of the standings

This Mexico side have been the clear favorites in the CONCACAF region winning 2 and drawing 1 game so far. Their 2 wins were fairly convincing but their most recent match against a fairly underwhelming Panama side ended in a draw. Mexico needs to find their rhythm again if they are to topple a defensively solid Canada side in their upcoming fixture on Friday night. Canada can rocket to the top of the log with a win but should Mexico take home all 3 points they will be sitting very comfortably at the top of the table with a 5 points gap between themselves and the Canadians.

Canada still unbeaten but looking to be more ruthless

Canada are unbeaten in their last 6 fixtures in the 2nd and 3rd qualifying rounds of the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers. More importantly. Though, they have yet to be beaten in the main qualifiers as they have drawn 2 and won 1 so far. This young Canadian team has looked resolute in defense but they have been lacking that killer instinct upfront. There is more than enough talent in this team to find a more ruthless streak but as they come up against a strong Mexico side, they are going to need to find another gear if they want to take all 3 points home with them.

Head to Head

The head to head record between these sides is absolutely dire. If you are a Canadian fan then you may  be very familiar with the record between these two sides. The Canadians have lost all of their last 5 fixtures against the Mexicans. In fact, Canada has not beaten the Mexicans since the year 2000. That means that our World Cup Qualifier betting tips are almost certainly leading towards a continued trend in this upcoming fixture.

Our Betting Tip for Today

With everything I have seen in terms of previous fixtures, it really is difficult to see anything other than a win for Mexico here. With that being said, Canada is a different suede than they have been in recent years. With young talent and a solid defense, a wager on a draw here may just be a value bet.

A very tight affair on the cards

Mexico is coming into this match as favorites, there is absolutely no doubt about it. However, the Canadians have found a mental fortitude that has aided them in their ability to be able to limit the amount of goals they concede. As such, there is going to be an interesting dynamic here between two sides who are playing vastly different styles of football at the moment. My money would still be on Mexico to sneak a win here but you would not be unwise to go for a draw here either.

This is a pivotal match in the group as a win could see Mexico extend their lead at the top of the table and would certainly put them in a very strong position to go all the way to the World Cup in 2022. It’s vital that Canada get something from this game to keep themselves in the hunt for a qualifying spot to the World Cup.
