Having looked solid yet unspectacular so far, Al Hain-Cole expects the Selecao to ease to an uneventful victory over Osorio's team in Samara

Having upset Germany already this World Cup, Mexico will be hoping to shock another of the favourites when they face Brazil in the last 16 on Monday.

Juan Carlos Osorio's team ran out 1-0 winners over the holders in their opening game, a result that contributed towards Die Mannschaft ultimately finishing bottom of the group.

Latest Odds

However, having gone out at this stage in each of the last six World Cup editions, they are 6/1 (7.00) outsiders with dabblebet to finally make it through to the quarter-finals by pulling off a surprise victory in Samara.

The Selecao have only lost once in 24 fixtures and are favourites to win the whole tournament, so are understandably priced at just 8/15 (1.53) to come out on top in this game.

This pair shared a 0-0 draw when they met at the 2014 World Cup, and there are odds of 16/5 (4.20) available on them requiring extra-time after yet another stalemate.

Team News

Douglas Costa is unavailable due to the same thigh injury that kept him out of the Serbia game, while full-backs Danilo and Marcelo could also both miss out.

Hector Moreno is suspended after receiving his second booking of the tournament against Sweden, with Hugo Ayala set to deputise in the centre of the defence.

Solid Selecao

Despite their favourites tag, Tite's team have hardly blown teams away so far, instead relying on a solid defence and the creativity of Neymar and Philippe Coutinho in attack.

This has been entirely in keeping with their general form under the former Corinthians boss, who has seen the team concede just six goals in 24 matches but score more than three only three times.

Prediction

With El Tri sure to provide a challenge considering their performance against Germany, odds of 21/20 (2.05) seem generous on Brazil proving too strong and easing to another solid yet unspectacular victory in a match featuring under 3.5 goals.
