Germany – Mexico (Confederations Cup)

The world champions will face Mexico national team this Thursday at Fisht Olympic Stadium, in Sochi, for the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup. The germans arrive after securing the leadership of Group B, and after wining comfortably the Cameroon national team in the last round, ambitioning a place in the final where they will face either Portugal or Chile. Mexico, on their turn, arrive here as 2nd placed in Group A and have already eliminated the hosts Russia and beaten New Zealand, failing only to win against Portugal.

Germany got the leadership of Group B with 7 points, result of 2 victories and 1 draw, with 7 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. The germans are in this Confederations Cup after wining the 2014 World Cup, but they arrive here without most of their key players, like Neuer, Mats Hummels, Boateng, Toni Kroos, Ozil, Muller, among others. However, Joachim Low’s squad arrive here with extremely talented players in spite of their young age, with the german coach already beginning to prepare the next generation of german football.

The Mannschaft have very talented young players the goal-keeper Stegen, the defenders Hector, Matthias Ginter and Mustafi, a talented midfield with Goretzka, Kimmich and Draxler, and an attack with Sandro Wagner and Timo Werner. The germans finished the groups stage with the best attack, in pair with Portugal, and present two of the three best strikers top scorers of the competition, Lars Stindl and Timo Werner, both with 2 goals scored like Cristiano Ronaldo. However, their defense hasn’t been properly solid, since they have conceded goals in all the matches in the competition.

In their last 5 matches, Germany has a record of 3 victories and 2 draws. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 draw against Denmark, friendly match. This result was followed by a 7-0 win over San Marino, a 2-3 win over Australia, a 1-1 draw against Chile, and in their last round, a 3-1 win over Cameroon.

Probable Lineup: Stegen – Ginter, Mustafi and Rudiger – Kimmich, Rudy, Emre Can and Hector – Goretzka and Draxler – Werner.

confederations 2017Mexico, on their turn, have qualified has 2nd placed in Group A with the same 7 points as the leader Portugal, result of 2 victories and 1 draw, with 6 goals scored and 4 goals conceded. The mexicans were unable of qualifying as group leaders thanks to a inferior goal difference in comparison with Portugal, since they were not as effective offensively or as defensively cohesive.

The Tricolor also counts with quality players, such as the defenders Layún and Hector Moreno, the midfielders Jonathan dos Santos, Marco Fabián and Herrera, and the strikers Chicharito Hernández, Jiménez or Giovani dos Santos. The mexicans have already won the competition once in all their history, in 1999, and they are aiming to reach the final in order to be closer to repeat that deed. However, they face here one of the most organized national team in Europe that will do their utmost to complicate their lives.

In their last 5 matches, Mexico has a record of  3 victories and 2 draws. This sequence of results started with a 3-0 win over Honduras. This result was followed by a 1-1 draw against United States, a 2-2 draw against Portugal, a 2-1 victory against New Zealand, and in their last round, a 2-1 win over Russia. Carlos Salcedo, injured, and Andrés Guardado, suspended, are both out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Ochoa – Reyes, Araujo, Moreno and Layún – Herrera, Alanís and Jonathan dos Santos – Vela, Chicharito and Lozano.
