Betting & Match Odds
Mexico are the favourites at 31/20 on bet365, while Japan can be backed at 7/4, while a draw is priced at 11/5.
Mexico find themselves under serious pressure to get a result after losing to Italy on Thursday and a win over Japan will give them a much-needed boost in their pursuit of a place in the knockout stage.
El Tri were up against one of the tournament favourites in the form of Italy and, despite ultimately losing, acquitted themselves well over the course of 90 minutes.
As such, they can take some positives into Sunday's game - something star player Lainez alluded to ahead of the match in an Instagram post, in which he declared "Faith and Confidence" ahead of the match.
Japan won't be easily beaten, however, and the Asian outfit will feel that they were somewhat unlucky in their 1-1 draw against Ecuador.
Goalkeeper Tomoya Wakahara saved a penalty in the game and they will need the Kyoto Sanga shot-stopper to be on top form once again if they are to get a result.
