Team Analysis - Mexico have played two solid matches, their game built around strong defence. As an attacking force they have only really come to life when Gio Dos Santos leaves the sub bench. As Mexico have played the same XI for both matches Dos Santos has been an impact sub. His 2nd game he gained man of the match as he instantly transformed Mexico, linking up well with Peralta. With Mexico almost guarenteed qualification they will keep the game tight again. Switzerland have been poor and were 2nd best in both matches, loose passing and no real control over their games. They look good upfront and Mehmedi and Berghara are a decent partnership but creativity is missing and defensiely they look poor too. Right back Michel Morganella has been sent home in disgrace after being found guilty of racial abuse on twitter, he won't really be missed as he has been poor in both games.
Betting Analysis - Mexico will stifle Switzerland and squeeze the life out of them. If Dos Santos does not start we can expect another really tight 1st half. Mexico may rest a few players but they do have decent squad players. Switzerland must win and score goals, something I cannot see them doing. Selection is Mexico in 90 minutes @2.10
