The Portugal vs. Mexico match will be played on Sunday, June 18, at the Kazan Arena, Kazan. This is the first round match of the Confederations Cup Group A, which consists of Portugal, Mexico, New Zealand and the hosts Russia.
These national teams met three times so far, and Portugal recorded two victories, while one match ended in a draw. Portugal won both games that were played in the 21st century.
Portugal is currently eight points in front of Hungary in the World Cup Qualification Europe Group B, with four games to go. Therefore, they practically secured the position number two, but they want to qualify for the World Cup directly, which means they will probably have to defeat Switzerland at home in the last qualifying game. The Confederation Cup will be a good preparation for that.

Mexico is also in an excellent position in CONCACAF, and they will probably secure the top three position which leads to World Cup in the next two games. They will be motivated in the upcoming game since they never defeated Portugal in head to head match.

Since this is a friendly match, it 's hard to predict who will win it. However, these national teams are usually attack-minded, and the upcoming game should be attractive with many goals scored.
