Portugal v Mexico. Betting tips, odds & prediction for the Confederations Cup 2017

Mexico and Portugal came to Russia for the Confederations Cup 2017 for a victory. Fernando Santos mixed the plans and made mysterious speeches but it is obvious that the Euro-2016 champion wanted to lift the trophy. In either case Cristiano Ronaldo wouldn’t stay with Portugal until the semi-final instead of being with his newborn babies. Now when Portugal is without a Confederations Cup 2017 final after a penalty defeat to Chile Ronaldo is out of the team and will not play in a third place Mexico encounter. Mexico wasn’t lucky to concede two early goals from Germany in the semi-final and there were little chances to be back into the game. At 2 of June Portugal and Mexico will decide who is the third team of the Confederations Cup 2017 at Otkrytiye arena in Moscow.

Betting Tip: Portugal had conceded just two goals in four outings at the Confederations Cup 2017

Semi-finals of the Confederations Cup 2017 were played in a different way. Portugal was an equal team to Chile but Claudio Bravo with his three consecutive saves in the penalty shootout stopped European champion on his path to another big game in the final. Mexico overslept the starting 10 minutes in a game against Germany and that was enough to be backed off from the path to the trophy. Both team however would not refuse from their football styles in a third place clash. Portugal has a task to play accurate in defense while Mexico always tries to provoke the opponents into errors. Of course there will be serious squad changes but they can’t affect on the game.

Betting Tip: Mexico is the only team at the CC-2017 that played all the games with Total Over 2.5 results

Mexico and Portugal played with each other in the opening game for both at the Confederations Cup 2017. Despite the bookmakers odds Mexico could take a point from that outing with a late equalizer form Hector Moreno. Also Portugal encounter is a historical match for Mexican forward Chicharito who had scored the record goal for his national team. Portugal had conceded two goals from Mexico and these are the only goals conceded by Rui Patricio at the CC-2017. In view of the insignificance of the upcoming second Mexico clash there is a huge chance Portugal will concede more.
