Mexico x Brazil Team News

Hirving Lozano, who was once of PSV, was surprisingly left out of Mexico's roster even though he may have moved to MLS team San Diego FC earlier in the week. After being relegated to the bench during their 4-0 loss to Uruguay on Tuesday, Feyenoord star Santiago Gimenez ought to get a total recall in Texas.

Leading Mexico out this Sunday and earning his 78th international appearance, captain Edson Alvarez had a stellar first season with Premier League side West Ham last season.

Attacking talisman Vinicius Junior will play in the early hours of Sunday after scoring at Wembley last week and crowning Real Madrid as Champions League winners. Lucas Paqueta, a midfielder for West Ham, is in the Brazil team despite the possibility of a lengthy suspension hanging over his head.

Manchester City striker Ederson may have broken his eye socket last month. Still, he was rewarded with a place in the Selecao team and the chance to win his 26th international cap today.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

Regarding Brazil, it is well known that the Selecao is in the middle of a severe wobble, even if the South American powers may have started the New Year with a tough 1-0 win away at European giants England. 

The former Sao Paulo manager seems to have a severe task after choosing Dorival Junior as his successor in January. The five-time world champions had a disastrous start to their World Cup qualification campaign last year and have only won once in their six outings overall. 

Brazil has been exhibiting some very obvious defensive problems, giving the impression of a team looking for a much-needed lift this weekend. Even though Junior's guys are expected to be a major force when they visit Texas, they have only managed to record two clean sheets in their past 14 games.

Starting with Mexico, who suffered a 2-0 setback to the USA during the March international break in the Nations League, El Tricolor has exhibited severe problems during the last year. With their dismal performance against Uruguay in Denver earlier in the week, Jaime Lozano may already be under increasing strain. 

Ending 2023 with a thrilling 3-2 loss to Colombia, Mexico has only won four of their previous eleven games in all competitions. Similarly, after losing 2-0 to Brazil in their last meeting in July 2018, Lozano's patchy team is seen as a genuine underdog when they visit Texas this weekend.

Our Predictions

Brazil to win @ 1.55 on

Brazil has just one win in its last six games in all competitions, So It will be aware of the need to gain a crucial advantage. But even if the South American legends have been exhibiting some genuine problems lately, they will see an opening in Texas. A dismal record versus Brazil should worry El Tricolor, especially after seeing Mexico put on a nightmarish display earlier in the week when they were hammered 4-0 by Uruguay.
