The reigning champions Germany play Mexico in their opening match at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.The defending World Cup champions, Germany, will start the campaign to defend their title on Sunday when they take on Mexico.

Germany and Mexico are participating in Group F, which also includes the likes of Sweden and South Korea. All things being equal, Germany and Mexico are likely to advance to the next round in the tournament, though both teams would obviously love to score a win on Sunday to get their tournament off to a good start.

Germany qualified for the World Cup on October 5th, 2017 after winning UEFA Group C. Mexico qualified roughly a month earlier after winning the CONCACAF Fifth Round. Mexico will be making their 16th appearance in the World Cup, with their best finishes coming in 1970 and 1986 when they went to the quarter-finals. Germany, on the other hand, will be making their 19th appearance in the World Cup - they have a total of 4 wins.

Germany is heavily favoured to win this contest though Mexico has some talent that can't be overlooked. Let's take a look at the current betting odds for this match, courtesy of Bet365:

Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow will be the home for a group stage clash between Germany and Mexico at the 2018 World Cup.

Most of Mexico's players play in Mexico and the MLS, though some play in Germany (Carlos Salcedo, Marco Fabian) and Spain (Miguel Layun, Hector Moreno).

That being said, there is a tremendous talent gulf that the Mexican side will have to overcome, and that will not be easy. Germany is talented from top to bottom, though they will have to carry the pressure of looking to defend their title.
