Mexico face one of the biggest matches in their history on Saturday, in a game that will live stream from Russia against the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup hosts with a berth in semifinals of the prestigious pre-World Cup tournament on the line for both teams – teams that will be facing each other for the 13th time.
In fact, Mexico and Russia have played to a stalemate in seven of their previous 12 meetings, while Russia has won four and Mexico just one, a victory that came 31 years ago.
A draw for Mexico on Saturday would leave the team with five points and clinch a semifinal berth. That means that Russia needs a clear victory to end with six points — a total that’ll be good enough to get the hosts into the knockout stage. In fact, if New Zealand can stun Portugal at the same time on Saturday, a Russia win would give the hosts top of the group.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Moscow Standard Time at Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia, on Saturday, June 24.

Mexico Manager Juan Carlos Osorio at a press conference on Friday described the game as “judgment day” for his team.
“I honestly think that this is a perfect scenario for Mexican football,” he said. “We play away from home against the host team with a lot of support from their fans and fighting for qualification.”
Can the Mexico win in what their own manager calls an “extraordinary scenario” to launch themselves into the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup semifinals where they would be likely to face either Chile or Germany on Wednesday? Or will tournament hosts Russia pull off the upset and potentially eliminate El Tri from the competition, scoring what would be one of the most historic victories in Russian on-the-pitch history?
