Mexico and Panama face each other today, June 30, at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville in an international friendly to keep the preparations for the upcoming Concacaf Gold Cup 2021. Here, find out what you need to know about this soccer match: the preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds and how to watch it in the US.
Despite El Tri being the favorite for the Gold Cup, Tata Martino’s team hasn’t been able to win any of their last three games. The loss against the United States in the Concacaf Nations League final was disappointing for the Mexican clan. They came from a 0-0 against Honduras, but that’s not enough to win back the Gold Cup later this July.
On the other hand, Panama is on a seven-game unbeaten streak. Their last match ended up in a goalless draw against Curaçao for the World Cup Qualifiers, but Thomas Christiansen, former Leeds United coach, has helped this team progress since he assumed the role last year, despite some bad results.

Mexico vs Panama: Storylines
The last time Mexico and Panama played each other was in November 2019 and El Tri won with a score 3-0. In total, they have met 21 times, and Mexico has won 14 of them. Panama has only two victories, but in the Gold Cup.
In the last five meetings Mexico have won four; with Panama scoring just a solitary goal. On the other hand, this would be an interesting match for Mexico because the Gold Cup is not the only tournament approaching, as the Olympic Games are also near.
Right now, el Tata Martino has been working with two groups, the one that is competing in the Gold Cup and the one that is going to go to the Olympics. However, this match will probably serve for the group that is going to compete at the continental tournament.
