Mexico will look to seal their spot in the knockout stages with a win over Asian Giants South Korea today at the Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don.

Mexico shocked World Cup holders Germany with a 1-0 victory in their first group game, and the second matchday will go a long way to deciding who makes the last 16 of the tournament. The last time South Korea and Mexico met was in 1998, with the El Tri winning it 3-1 in the group stages.

If stats are to believed then Mexico looks strong on paper as they have won all of their World Cup games against Asian teams. While on paper South Korea looks quite weak as they are winless in their last seven World Cup games, losing their last three match in a row. The Asian underdogs have failed to score in their last three World Cup games.

Mexico feels very comfortable playing with possession of the ball, which means counterattacks and set pieces will matter in this battle. Let’s see how this game unfolds.

Here are squads for the game:
