The Mexico vs. Russia match will be played on Saturday, June 24, at the Kazan Arena, Kazan. This is the third round match of Confederations Cup group A, where Mexico is currently 1st with 4 points, while Russia is currently 3rd with 3 points.


  • Mexico recorded a 2:2 draw against Portugal in the first round, while they defeated New Zealand by 2:1 in the second round.
  • Four different players scored goals for Mexico in the first two games.
  • Russia defeated New Zealand by 2:0 in the first round, while they were defeated against Portugal in the second round by 1:0.
  • Only Smolov scored for Russia in the first two games, while the other goal was an own goal from the New Zealand defender.


These national teams played only two games against each other so far. Russia won both of them, 2:0 in 1992, while in 1994 there were even more convincing - 4:1.


Mexico put up a good fight against Portugal in the first round match and earned a draw, while they had a difficult time against New Zealand, which led by 1:0 on the halftime. In the second half, they played much better and recorded a significant victory. If they stay undefeated against Russia, they will qualify for the semifinals. However, if they lose, they will be eliminated. Mexico might have a problem in the upcoming game since they are not very good defensively. Therefore, we don't expect they'll change anything - they will try to win the match.

Russia is in a difficult situation after the loss against Portugal. However, if they defeat Mexico, they will qualify for the second phase. Russia has a better defense than Mexico, and if they score first, they will have an excellent chance to win the match in the end.

We expect an exciting and probably tensed game. Everything is possible, but Mexico is the favorite to qualify for the next phase.
