Match Predictions

Mexico team has strong mental strength which they show throughout in their game. Though Russia is a strong team but looking towards the recent circumtances Mexico seems more  stronger than it.But it seems that El Tri can get better ahead of the hosts on the Saturday’s showdown in Kazan Arena. So, in  Saturday’s match both teams will give their hundred percent to grab win from the mouth of the other.So it is going to be a very fascinating game to watch.
