The CONCACAF Nations League continues this month, and Mexico has games on both match days. First up, El Tri will travel to Panama to take on the Cañaleros in what will be the hosts’ final game of the group stage.
In their meeting in October in Mexico City, El Tri earned a 3-1 victory against the Panamanians to take sole possession of first place in Group B. As it stands, Mexico has six points from two games, while Panama and Bermuda both have three points from three games.
Mexico will look to keep their winning streak alive, while Panama will look to guarantee qualification to the 2021 Gold Cup with a positive result on home soil.
The group stage of the CONCACAF Nations League continues this week with Mexico hosting Panama in Group B play.
Mexico had their first game in the competition this past Friday, where they beat Bermuda 5-1 away. That was enough to put El Tri in first place in the group based on goal difference; Panama and Bermuda split their series last month, leaving all three teams with three points.
Mexico will now look to take definitive control of the group with a home victory in this one.
Mexico starts their participation in the 2019 CONCACAF Nations League this Friday with a visit to Bermuda. Mexico and Bermuda are in Group B of the tournament, alongside Panama.
The group stage started in September, where Panama and Bermuda faced off twice, splitting the series: Panama won 4-1 away on September 5th, and then Bermuda won 2-0 away on September 8th.
Mexico is expected to roll past Bermuda, but the Gombey Warriors will hope to build on their victory against Panama with a positive result here. As for El Tri, they’ll go top of the group if they win by more than one goal, and they’ll be looking to score a lot more than that here.
The Mexican national team will be in action on Wednesday night as they face Trinidad and Tobago in an international friendly. The game will serve as preparation for both teams ahead of October’s CONCACAF Nations League games.
El Tri was unbeaten in their first 11 games of 2019 – with 10 wins and a draw and a Gold Cup title in that span – before falling 4-0 to Argentina in a September friendly.
T&T, meanwhile, is winless so far in 2019, after nine games – with four draws and five losses in four friendlies, three Gold Cup and two Nations League matches.
