Only two of the eight teams in 2022 Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers have won games after the first two Matchdays, and they will meet on Wednesday. Mexico is 2-0 and sits atop the standings, while Panama has a win and a draw in its first two contests to sit in second place.

For Mexico vs. Panama, Green is taking under 2.5 goals for a -137 payout. These teams squared off twice during the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers and only one total goal was scored across those matches. Four of the last seven matchups between these teams have had under 2.5 total goals scored.
Panama has found the back of the net just once over its last seven games versus Mexico, and that lack of success isn’t expected to dramatically change come Wednesday. Mexico is coming off a shutout victory over Costa Rica in which goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa was rarely challenged.
The side that would be more likely to break out and find the net early and often is Mexico, but it’s playing with an undermanned group up front. Mexico will be without forwards Raul Jimenz and Hirving Lozana, who have scored 21 goals and 13 goals, respectively, for the Mexico National Team. Their absences should limit Mexico’s offensive attack, making this a low-scoring game.
“El Tri looks a little light in attack,” Green told SportsLine. “Wolves refused to release Raúl Jiménez, as COVID-19 restrictions would have forced him to miss Premier League action in quarantine, while Hirving Lozano is out injured.”
