This week’s close games have left Group A with a lot to play for heading into the third round of Confederation Cup fixtures. Mexico currently lead the way having left it late to see off New Zealand 2-1; Oribe Peralta scored in the 72nd minute, though there were some nervy moments in the last few minutes as the All Whites threatened to cause an almighty upset. Having drawn with Portugal already – the European champions boasting an in-form though seemingly unhappy Cristiano Ronaldo – the South Americans are now in a strong position to advance to the semi-finals.

With the top two from the two groups all qualifying, it is looking like coming down to a straight fight between Mexico and Russia for the remaining berth. That is, of course, unless New Zealand, having been eliminated, were to beat Portugal to get their first points of the tournament.

Russia will also fancy their chances in getting the win that would see them leapfrog Mexico, though they are at a disadvantage in the fact that their opponents are able to sit back and play for a draw - the odds at Tipbet have this outcome at 3.20, and therefore the least likely of the 1X2 markets. Given that the home side have the best defence in the group, they will certainly see the weakness in Mexico, who having conceded three times are better in attack than defence.

With that in mind, it is 1.75 for both teams to score, while a 1-0 Russian win is 7.50. Mexico are slight favourites to win on the night, and can be backed at 2.35, while Russia are at 2.85. Odds throughout the Confederations Cup are available with Tipbet, including the New Zealand v Portugal match and remaining Group B fixtures.
