How to watch the Round of 16 clash between Brazil and Mexico

July 1, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
A Canarinha has to be considered the favorite, but this generation of Mexican players has shown that they can stun the Brazilian side.

Brazil and Mexico will sort out the sixth ticket for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Quarter finals in a game set to take place at Samara Stadium. The South Americans have to be considered favorites to win this game, but Mexico has shown in the recent past that they can put up a good fight against A Canarinha, which means that we could have a pretty intense clash coming up.

The Verdeamarelha side gets to this game without a loss. They may have had a slow start against Switzerland, but subsequent wins against Costa Rica and Serbia saw them conquer Group E. Now, coach Tite's main concern will be to deal with the recent injuries to some key players.  Furthermore, Neymar, Casemiro and Coutinho will have to avoid another yellow card, since they could be banned for the quarter finals if they can manage to beat El Tri.

Mexico's first two games were dazzling, but their poor performance against Sweden saw their coach's haters crawl out of their holes. Now, Mexico will have to prove that their wins against Germany and South Korea were caused by their good work, and coach Osorio will certainly adjust his starting lineup to stop the dangerous Brazilian midfield. Miguel Layún, Héctor Herrera and Jesús Gallardo are also one booking away from missing a possible quarter final match for El Tri.
