Mexico v New Zealand

Both of these sides have work to do to emerge from the Confederations
Cup group stage after disappointing results in the opening round of
matches. New Zealand were swept aside 2-0 by the hosts Russia, while
Mexico needed a last-gasp leveller to snatch a point against Portugal.
New Zealand have failed to score in their last three
matches, and at the back end of last year, they couldn't even score in a
World Cup qualifier in New Caledonia. The defection of Australia to the
Asian qualifying section for the World Cup means that New Zealand are
by far the strongest side in Oceania, but there is then a huge gulf in
quality when they step up a level.
When New Zealand contested the 2009 Confederations Cup, they failed
to score a single goal, and it's hard to see where goals will come from
in Russia too. Conversely, Mexico have plenty of firepower. Although he
had a wretched season for Bayer Leverkusen, Chicharito scored against Portugal, his third goal in the last seven appearances for El Tri. Former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela is technically gifted, while Benfica's Raul Jimenez is also dangerous. With the likes of Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado, there is also plenty of quality in the Mexican midfield.
I fancy Mexico to win this comfortably, and the best bet I have found to reflect that expected dominance is from the Sportsbook. You can back Mexico to win both halves at what I think is an attractive price of 2.10.
Back Mexico to win both halves at 2.10
