Germany v Mexico Betting Tips Explained

We have reached the business end of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, with just four nations remaining in the hunt to lift the trophy on July 2.

It promises to be an entertaining encounter between Germany and Mexico – both of whom arrive off the back of impressive recent form. The most recent contest came at the 2005 tournament and produced a 4-3 victory for the Germans in a thrilling Third Place Play-Off that went to extra-time.

Die Mannschaft are now unbeaten in their last 13 matches after collecting seven points from a possible nine on the way to topping Group B.

Joachim Low’s new-look squad has not looked out of place so far and, in particular, Lars Stindl after scoring in the opening two games, before being rested against Cameroon on Sunday.

The Borussia Monchengladbach forward is likely to be restored to the starting line-up on Thursday, and it is definitely worth a punt on him marking his recall by finding the net once again at any time.

Germany’s only real downfall is that they have appeared a little shaky at the back, having conceded in all three group games.

That is the one area that Low will be seeking improvement within as he aims to deliver a first FIFA Confederations Cup for Germany, who have only lost once in 10 previous showdowns with Mexico.

El Tri, who have tasted defeat just once in 16 matches, also picked up seven points in Group A but were denied top spot by Portugal on goal difference.

Juan Carlos Osorio’s men have shown great spirit and determination to come from behind in all three group games, including the decisive 2-1 victory over Russia on Saturday.

They will need to demonstrate that level of commitment once again to have the best possible chance of upsetting Germany and remaining on course for a second title, having lifted the trophy in 1999.

The fact that the Germans have conceded in every match so far will give them hope but, on the whole, you would fancy the World champions to prevail in Sochi.


Germany v Mexico Stats

  • Mexico have won just one of the 10 previous meetings between the nations – a 2-0 success in June 1985
  • The most recent showdown came at the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup, with Germany prevailing 4-3 winners in a thrilling Third Place Play-Off that went into extra-time
  • The Germans are unbeaten in 13 matches since Euro 2016 – winning 10 and drawing three
  • Mexico came from behind in each of their three group games to salvage a point at the very least
  • The Mexicans have lost just one of their last 16 matches
