Quick Facts

  • Mexico are after their fourth consecutive win over Paraguay
  • La Tri are undefeated in previous 17 games in all competitions
  • Paraguay recorded only one win in last five matches
  • Ramon Diaz’s men recorded their last win over Mexico back in 2007
  • Mexico scored ten goals in last three meetings with Paraguay

Mexico vs Paraguay Prediction

Both Mexico and Paraguay will take part at the 2016 Copa America Centenario and both teams have big ambitions for the tournament in United States. The Mexicans will be without their star players Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos in Saturday’s friendly against Paraguay, but coach Juan Carlos Osorio has a number of top-class players to choose from and I believe that La Tri will score in their penultimate warm-up game. Paraguay scored exactly two goals in each of their last three World Cup qualifying matches and there is every chance we will see goals galore in Atlanta.

Betting Tip: Both teams to score

Odds: 2.10 (11/10) @10Bet
