Mexico’s first match at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar was against Poland on Tuesday and it finished in a 0:0 draw. The team is currently going through a winless streak of two games, recording 1 loss and 1 draw in the process. Performing at home was of little help throughout the last ten Mexico meetings, as the hosts won three times and the guests won four times. Looking back at El Tricolor’s previous five games, it’s clear that three of them produced over 2.5 goals and two saw goals at both ends. Throughout these, Mexico’s efforts paid off as the team managed to prevent goals in their net three times and failed to score on their own in only one encounter. The total goals scored across the team’s last five encounters amounted to 13.
