It will be a battle of the Group A unbeaten teams on Tuesday when Brazil does battle with Mexico.

Both Brazil and Mexico managed to win their first games of the World Cup earlier in the week, as Brazil toppled Croatia 3-1 in the tournament opener while Mexico defeated Cameroon 1-0. Brazil suffered a slight scare as they fell behind 1-0 in early action, but they soon managed to right the ship to get their tournament off to a good start. Mexico, on the other hand, edged past Cameroon, though the score was much closer than the actual game was.

Brazil is almost certain to move on from Group A, while Mexico and Croatia will be left to battle for the second spot. Mexico would do themselves a big favour by gaining at least one point from Brazil on Tuesday, though that will be a tall task.


Here are the odds for Tuesday's match between Brazil and Mexico:

Brazil, 1.30
Draw, 5.50
Mexico, 9.50

As you can see from these odds, Mexico is a massive underdog.

Brazil will be heavily relying on the boot of Neymar, who managed to score two goals in his first match against Croatia.

According to the bookmakers, here are the odds of Neymar scoring and Brazil winning:

Neymar to Score and Brazil to Win, 2.20


Finally, oddsmakers are expecting a high scoring contest on Tuesday, as evidenced by this line:

Under 2.5 Goals, 2.30
Over 2.5 Goals, 1.57


This should be a great game between two football mad nations.
