It is going to be a thrilling contest when Mexico takes on Germany in the semifinals of the 2017 Confederation Cup. We have to consider the fact that Mexico has never beaten Germany, but the Mexican team is coming on the back of a confident run. We could expect goals to fall for both teams. On the other end, Germany looks like the better side because of their strong midfield and ability to finish off scoring chances.

Germany and Mexico have met four times in the past and El Tricolor has never won any of them. Germany has two victories and two draws against the Mexicans.
Germany came from a comfortable 3-1 victory against Cameroon national football team to clinch the number one spot in Grouo B, scoring a total of 7 goals. The players of the team helped Joachim Low to become the world’s first ever coach to record 100 international wins as they sealed and secured their place in the semifinal. Kerim Demirbay opened the scoring board in the 8th minute of the game and it was followed by RB Leipzig hotshot forward Timo Werner who scored twice against their opponent. Meanwhile, Vincent Aboubakar is the only scorer for the Cameroon team. Die Mannschaft started the competition with a dramatic 3-2 win over Australia before being held to a 1-1 draw with Chile.
Mexico managed to beat the host Russia with a 2-1 victory in their last match of the Confederations Cup in the presence of Nestor Araujo and Hirving Lozano in the scoring sheet to secure the semifinal round. In fact, El Tricolor performed relatively well in the group stages to pick up seven points from their three matches to reached the final four stage. Mexico held the reigning European champions Portugal to a draw in their opening game and won back to back games in their remaining two matches against New Zealand and Russia. As we can see the results, it seems that Mexico have successfully established themselves as one of the world’s high-profile national teams.
The battle between Germany and Mexico will be a very tight match. Mexico will try to prove their worth at the Confederations Cup against World Cup champions Germany but it is perfectly clear that German players will take their chances to qualify for the final round.
Germany to win 2.05 (this odd might change)
