GUA vs MEX Dream11 Prediction: Guatemala will look to pick up their first victory at the Gold Cup since 2011 when they face Mexico on Wednesday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The hosts have a largely inexperienced squad and are dependent on domestic talent. Mexico, on the other hand, absolutely dominated Trinidad and Tobago but they just weren’t able to score a goal.
Despite peppering their opponent’s goal with shots, Mexico could only draw 0-0 with Trinidad and Tobago in their first Group A fixture, making this next match against Guatemala an absolutely crucial one from their point of view. After losing to El Salvador in their opening encounter, Guatemala already have a mountain to climb in terms of knockout qualification, but can take heart from the fact that Trinidad and Tobago have already proven that Mexico can be stopped. However, Gerardo Martino’s side are a very strong outfit who will be desperate to bounce back and whilst the absence of Raul Jimenez was no doubt a factor in their struggles infront of goal, they should have more than enough firepower to ease past Guatemala.

El Tri were unlucky in their opening match, and even with the loss of Lozano, it should just be a question of patience against Guatemala before they find their opening. In our GUA vs MEX Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 3-0 win for Mexico side in this match.
