Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Mexico -145
Mexico will feature a solid lineup with familiar faces like Guillermo Ochoa, Raul Jimenez, and Santiago Gimenez. This also marks the return of Hirving Lozano, who hasn’t played for the Mexican side since he suffered a knee injury back in May. The PSV Eindhoven forward will return to the squad as they continue to prepare for upcoming tournaments starting next year.
Ghana are coming off a 2-1 win over Central African Republic in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier back in September, thanks to an 88th-minute game-winning goal from Ernest Nuamah. Manager Chris Hughton has called up a myriad of familiar faces for the Ghanaian side, including Arsenal defender Thomas Partey, Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew, and Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams.
Take El Tri to get the win here, as their side will likely end up being too much for Ghana to overcome especially if they field a first-choice team in the first half.
