Mexico vs Chile Team News
Porto midfielder Hector Herrera returns to contention after missing the Paraguay game due to club commitments, while the likes of Giovani dos Santos and Carlos Vela both miss out. Coach Juan Carlos Osorio is likely to mix the squad against Chile, meaning that the likes of Jorge Torres, Paul Aguilar, Yasser Corona and Diego Reyes are all likely to start. Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is likely to be rested against Chile.
Coach Pizzi is widely expected to make changes to the team that suffered a 2-1 loss to Jamaica. Mauricio Isla picked up a knock in training and he is rated doubtful for the Mexico friendly. Eduardo Vargas and Eugenio Mena are definitely out of contention with injury, but Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez is fit and he will be the man to watch in Pizzi’s team. Jorge Valdivia has been left out of the squad, while Marcelo Larrondo remains on the sidelines with injury.
Injured: Marcelo Larrondo, Eduardo Vargas, Eugenio Mena
Doubtful: Mauricio Isla
- Mexico are eyeing their ninth consecutive win in all competitions
- La Tri are after their eight straight clean sheet
- Over 2.5 goals were scored in each of Chile’s last three games
- Alexis Sanchez has netted 28 goals for La Roja to date
- This will be final warm-up game for both Mexico and Chile ahead of Copa America
Mexico vs Chile Prediction
Mexico coach Juan Osorio is unlikely to field the best possible side against Chile, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting line-up, there is every chance La Tri will extend their goal-scoring run against La Roja. Chile are desperate to make amends for the loss to the Reggae Boyz and, taking everything into account, both teams should find the net in the Qualcomm Stadium showdown.
Betting Tip: Both teams to score
Odds: 1.90 (9/10) @Betfair
