Mexico vs Japan: Latest News, Conclusion & Preview 

For a second time this year, we believe that Japan will win against Mexico and win the bronze medal. The last time Mexico got further than the group stage or quarter-finals was in the 2012 Olympic Games in London where they won the gold medal. 

Coincidentally, Japan's best performance at the Olympics was also in 2012 where they lost in the semi-finals against Mexico and in the bronze medal match against South Korea to secure fourth place in the tournament. The difference is that we believe that this year Japan has better chances of winning against Mexico.
