United States vs Mexico: prediction for the CONCACAF Nations League

The CONCACAF Nations League main event πŸ†

Fighting for their third straight Nations League championship, USA will host Mexico in Arlington, Texas. Match at AT&T Stadium will begin on March 25, at 2:15 AM CET.

United States

Sitting 13th in the latest FIFA rankings, USA is seeking their third consecutive Nations League title. Scrapped by a feisty Trinidad & Tobago squad in the quarter finals, United States advanced to the playoffs in Arlington, where they needed an injury time own goal and an overtime goal to survive the Jamaica upset bid.

A loss to Slovenia in January and a subpar performance against Jamaica do not inflict much confidence in the upcoming match, but those are two-time defending champions for a reason. However, as the United States prepare to host the upcoming World Cup in 2026, their schedule is going to be filled with either friendlies or events such as Copa America, putting their ability to perform on the biggest stages under the microscope.

Mexico

Number 15 in the world rankings, El Tri seek the elusive victory against USA in the Nations League, as they lost to the Stars and Stripes during the previous two competitions..

Mexico needed 111 minutes in their match against Honduras in the quarter-finals to even get into overtime, coming back from a β€œ0-2” defeat in Tegucigalpa, but a penalty shootout victory sent them to Arlington. Trouncing Panama β€œ3-0” returned Mexico to the final match, but now the hardest task is coming up.

WIthout having to go through the qualifying process for the upcoming World Cup, Mexico will play against Ecuador, Jamaica and Venezuela in their group at Copa America, but first they need to secure the championship in Texas.

Prediction ⚽️

While Mexico holds an overall edge in the rivalry, United States have not lost to their archrivals since 2019, winning four of the past six, including two victories in the CONCACAF Nations League.

This time, however, with a massive fanbase staying behind Mexico in Texas, there is a chance for El Tri, as we will take the visitors in the final match with the massive 3.65 odds πŸ”₯.
