World Cup 2018 favourites Brazil face Mexico in the round of 16 after winning Group E courtesy of two wins and a draw. verdict: Brazil qualified for the last-16 stage without reaching top form but the match-up with Mexico is one they should be winning, against a team who have lost at this stage at each of the last six consecutive World Cups. Mexico did beat Germany, but a 3-0 loss to Sweden has proved costly in terms of their potential route through the competition now. It is all academic, however, as Brazil should win and win well.
