Mexico is gearing up for the 2019 Gold Cup with a friendly against the Venezuelan national team. This is the first of two pre-tournament friendlies for El Tri, while the Vinotinto are preparing for their own summer tournament, the Copa América.
Mexico is unbeaten under new coach Tata Martino, who oversaw victories against Chile and Paraguay in March, but the team has been hit hard by injuries and their depth will be tested in the coming weeks.
Venezuela played out a 1-1 draw with Ecuador in a friendly just a few days ago, and has won just one of their last five matches – a surprise 3-1 victory against Argentina back in March. They’ll look to surprise Mexico as well in this one.
All times Eastern.
