12BET (Football Tip) Russia’s best and only chance lies in ceaseless attacking in order for them to course through a win match. Should they get to knock out Mexico, this will qualify them into the semifinal round of Confederations Cup.
Mexico have a better chance over Russia in semifinals after a spirited display against New Zealand—all thanks to Javier Aquino’s brilliant deliver. His second half goal took his side to claim victory in 2-1 encounter.
However, there seems to have little problem in the team after Carlos Salcedo picked up an injury in the first half of recent game. This makes him a unlikely to be featured in the 4-3-3 of manager Juan Carlos Osorio.
Stanislav Cherchesov’s side has been outplayed by Portugal with one goal deficit. Seemingly, the team’s 1-0 defeat over recent opponent calls for a bounce back as they take on a challenge against Mexico on weekend.
Russia’s struggles at the hands of Fernando Santos’ men were evident. Given this, there is a high chance that Cherchesov’s squad might once again hit the rock bottom if they falter to step up their game.
However, Russia can reverse this if they can capitalize on the Mexico’s mistakes and if they are strong enough to break the relatively wobbly defenses of Mexico.
Mexico will leap at the chance to enter the semifinal round by beating Russia. The Mexican side could make light of the work given the fact that they are almost close to the end of Confederations Cup.
Mexico 2.45 (best odds here to step up the game)
