Portugal Vs Mexico Match Predictions
It is probably the toughest game to predict the final score. The Navigators needed time to boost in big competition as we have seen in France last year. On the other hand, Mexico always creates problems to big teams in group games. Current form of both teams also reveals that both are capable of doing wonders. Our prediction would be in favour of Mexico.
Prediction: Portugal 2 – 3 Mexico.
