Fans can watch the Mexico vs. Paraguay football match live online and see the teams face-off in one of their final tune-ups before the Copa America.
The rivals will meet on Saturday in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, with the start time scheduled for 5:30 p.m. ET.
Both nations are preparing for the upcoming Copa America Centenario, and Mexico will be looking to keep up its streak of 17 straight games without a loss. El Tri is looking to reach the Copa America finals for the first time since 2001, and has a favorable draw in Group C with Uruguay, Venezuela, and Jamaica.
Mexico captain Marquez Rafael Marquez believes this could be Mexico’s first-ever title in the tournament.
“We have a great opportunity [to win it], but we have to take it game by game,” he told Goal.com. “It is going to take a lot of work, because there are a lot of other national teams with a lot of quality. Within the team there is a commitment of wanting to win, to fight with everything and make the final of the competition.”
Fans who watch the Mexico vs. Paraguay football match live online will also see a Paraguay squad looking to sharpen their skills before a more trying path in the Copa America. They have a more difficult draw in Group A with the United States, Colombia, and Costa Rica.
Paraguay is also searching for some kind of momentum after notching only one win in their last five matches. But they are motivated to perform well for their country, said Edgar Benitez.
“There is not one player who wants to miss out on this tournament or who refuses to play for the national team,” Benitez said. “In our country there are few opportunities to draw attention from abroad, and if we want a better way of life, we have to take advantage of the international spotlight.”
Fans who watch the Mexico vs. Paraguay football match live online may see a future fixture in goal for El Tri. Alfredo Talavera is slated to start and has already made a very strong impression on Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio. He allowed just 21 goals in Liga Mx this year, the best in the league, and Osorio said he would pick Talavera first if he were building an expansion team.
Defender Miguel Layun will be another player to watch, AJC.com noted.
“He went from relatively unknown in Mexico to one of the better wingers in European soccer in just a few years. His ability to get up and down the flanks and deliver crosses and through balls into space for forwards to run onto is one of the keys to Osorio’s aggressive tactics.”
Saturday’s match also represents a bit of history for the Mexican team. A frequent visitor to Atlanta, where they always draw a raucous crowd, the Mexican team will be playing their last match ever in the Georgia Dome.
It will likely be the last football match of any kind in the dome, which is being replaced by the Mercedes-Benz Stadium next year.
“It is a great opportunity to be back in Atlanta,” Osorio said, via AJC.com. “It has been a very good scenario for the Mexican national team. We hope that it continues that way.”
Osorio himself has a big stature in the United States, having previously coached the Chicago Fire and the New York Red Bulls of the MLS.
