Mexico vs New Zealand Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips: Mexico to win with ease against New Zealand

19:00 Wednesday 21 June 2017
EVENT ENDED!

New Zealand head into this contest low on morale, after losing their last three consecutive matches without even finding the back of the net. They will need to pick themselves up somehow, or become Group A’s whipping boys.

Match Preview

The All Whites have failed to score against Northern Ireland, Belarus and Russia recently, with their good form only present in the Oceania section of World Cup qualifying. Against stronger nations, they have really struggled to make the step up in terms of quality ahead of our Mexico vs New Zealand preview.

  • Mexico 3-1 Republic of Ireland
  • Mexico 3-0 Honduras
  • Mexico 1-1 USA
  • Portugal 2-2 Mexico

El Tri’s first Confederations Cup game ended on a high, as a late equaliser from Hector Moreno against Portugal ensured that they left that match feeling as though they’d won the game, rather than just drawn. That confidence will carry over into this week.

One loss in their last 15 matches suggests that the form book is definitely on Mexico’s side, with their opposition set to struggle with a squad that hasn’t played a lot of top-level football. This is a huge factor in our Mexico vs New Zealand predictions.

  • New Zealand 2-0 Fiji
  • Northern Ireland 1-0 New Zealand
  • Belarus 1-0 New Zealand
  • Russia 2-0 New Zealand

Mexico vs New Zealand Prediction and Betting Advice

Javier Hernandez is likely to be a huge threat to deal with up front, with the likes of Giovani Dos Santos, Carlos Vela and Raul Jimenez capable of offering plenty of quality in the final third too. It remains to be seen if New Zealand can cope against such exciting players.

According to our Mexico vs New Zealand picks, the underdogs will likely find themselves rock bottom of Confederations Cup Group A with zero points by the end of this week. After drawing with Portugal in their opening fixture, meanwhile, El Tri can’t afford anything other than a win.
