Both sides are ramping up their preparations for this summer's World Cup - with Iceland competing for the first time ever - and they will be keen to arrive in Russia with a string of good results under their belts.
El Tri have already beaten European opposition in 2018, claiming a 1-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina in February, and they are setting themselves up to compete wth Germany, South Korea and Sweden in June.
Iceland, meanwhile, are entering into relatively unfamilar territory, so they will seek to learn as much as they can from the upcoming warm-up matches before locking horns with Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in their group.

Betting & Match Odds
Mexico are firm favourites to win according to dabblebet, who price them at 4/6. Iceland are rated 4/1 to wn and a draw is available at 5/2.
Iceland are getting ready to compete at a World Cup for the first time in their history and in Mexico they have an ideal opponent to test themselves against.
Hallgrimsson's side defied expectations by finishing top of a qualifying group that included Croatia, Ukraine and Turkey, but they will have to raise their level again if they want to make an impact in Russia.
Mexico, on the other hand, are a nation with World Cup pedigree and this summer they are looking forward to competing in the tournament for the 16th time.
Boasting players such as Javier Hernandez, Andres Guardado and Raul Jiminez in their ranks, El Tri are a fearsome attacking unit and there is plenty of competition for places.
With that in mind, fringe players will be eager to impress head coach Juan Carlos Osorio enough in games such as this to book their place on the plane to Russia.
