After being held by Wales in their last outing, the North American side will be aiming to return to winning ways when they clash with the Tartan Army

Mexico entertain Scotland at Estadio Azteca on Sunday for their last Friendly encounter before they kick-start their campaign in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

After failing to come off with victory in their last two tune-up ties, including Tuesday’s goalless draw with Wales, Juan Carlos Osorio’s side will be looking to clinch a win in this outing in order to bolster their confidence ahead of the quadrennial tournament.

Although they will be meeting with Alex McLeish’s men for the first time, they are hot favourites at (1.27) with BetKing to come out on top in this contest.

El Tri recorded stalemates in their last two encounters and (5.25) is on offer for them to repeat the same with their visitors in this outing.

Although Scotland will not be heading to the global showpiece, but they have the Uefa Nations League to prepare for and following their 2-0 loss to Peru last time out, they will be looking to bounce back with a win here. However, they will have to blow up the odds of (12.00) to make that happen.

The Scottish have not found the net in three of their last four games while Juan Carlos Osorio’s side have also failed to notch in two. As a result, the betting firm is offering odds of (1.90) for two or fewer goals in this encounter.

Mexico have not tasted defeat in five of their last six outings and are backed at (1.01) to avoid a loss in the tie.

Considering the uninspiring form of Scotland in front of goal lately, BetKing have put up (1.48) for both sides NOT to find the back of the net in this contest.
