Wales host Mexico at the Cardiff City Stadium in an international friendly on Saturday night.

Wales lost their opening World Cup qualifier against world number one-ranked team Belgium despite Harry Wilson opening the scoring.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Thorgan Hazard and Romelu Lukaku earned a 3-1 comeback win for the Belgians and placed extra pressure on Wales’ Tuesday night clash with the Czech Republic.

While Mexico are yet to play a game in 2021, they will use the friendly to help their squad mesh ahead of CONCACAF Nations League fixtures in June.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 8pm GMT at the Cardiff City Stadium.

How can I watch it?

The match is live on Sky Sports Premier League with coverage starting from 7:55pm GMT.

What is the team news?

Wales will be without Joe Allen, who limped off early in the defeat to Belgium, as well as Aaron Ramsey, Ben Davies and Tom Lockyer after the trio withdrew from the squad.

Hirving Lozano may start for Mexico, who are still waiting on Raul Jiminez as the striker recovers from his head injury sustained back in November.

Predicted line-ups

 Wales: Ward, Gunter, Cabango, Rodon, Mepham, Norrington-Davies, Smith, Levitt, Matondo, Roberts, Williams

Mexico: Ochoa, Sanchez, Araujo, Moreno, Gallardo, Pineda, Romo, Rodriguez, Lainez, Lozano, Pizzaro


Wales: 16/5

Draw: 12/5

Mexico: 17/20


Mexico are missing key players, but I would argue that Wales’ absent stars are more important to the Dragons’ hopes. 1-0 Mexico.
