101GG Betting Tip:
Mexico and Bosnia are continuing their World Cup rehearsals on Wednesday morning, as both nations clash at Soldier Field stadium in Chicago.
Miguel Herrera’s men have shown flashes of brilliance in their recent wins against Israel (3:0), and Ecuador (3:1), despite a weak qualifying campaign, in which they secured a spot by the skin of their teeth.
El Tricolor paid a high price for their recent run of form, with both Rafa Marquez and Luis Montes suffering injuries during last week’s victory against Ecuador. While Marquez is expected to recover on time for the World Cup, Montes who suffered a broken leg, will miss the entire competition – a heavy blow for the Mexicans.
Bosnia have shown they should not be underestimated by any means, when they beat fellow World Cup contender Ivory Coast 2:1 last week, with both goals scored by Man City’s Edin Dzeko.
Mexico are competing in Group A, alongside tournament hosts Brazil, Croatia, and Cameroon, while Bosnia will be facing Argentina, Nigeria, and Iran in Group F.
