This Friday, November 10, 2017 (11:45 AM Pacific) Belgium will host Mexico at the King Baudouin Stadium for an international friendly match. The game is vital for Mexico’s preparation heading into the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will be a good test for a very talented Belgium side.
Belgium was dominant in the UEFA world cup qualifiers, finishing first in Group H with 28 points. The Red Devils breezed through the competition going undefeated and finishing with a goal differential of 37. Roberto Martinez has a world-class squad that could contend for the 2018 FIFA World Cup title with players like Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi will not be available for this match due to an injury but his absence should not affect the team too much. Belgium is the clear favorite to win this game especially with the home-field advantage and with the better squad but Mexico is capable of getting a favorable result in Brussels.
Mexico also had a dominant display in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, finishing first in the hexagonal stage with 21 points. El Tri only lost one game throughout the hexagonal stage and put up an impressive goal differential of nine. Hirving Lozano was one of the best players in the qualifiers with four goals and he is also currently in form with Dutch team PSV currently with nine goals in the Eredivisie.
Juan Carlos Osorio does count with a potent squad with players like Lozano, Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela, Hector Moreno and Andres Guardado. Winger Jesus Manuel Corona will not be available for this match because of a personal matter and this could be a big blow to Mexico’s offense. The match should be very entertaining as both teams have talented players but Belgium is the clear favorite to take the win.
