Tip Mexico - France
Mexico and France lock horns in Group A of the men’s football at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Both sides can be considered favourites to qualify to the next round from the Group, which also consists hosts Japan and South Africa. Last time around, Mexico failed to progress beyond the group stages in the Olympics, whereas France were not involved at all.
It is safe to say Mexico will be banking their best hopes of a medal on their men’s football team at the Games in Tokyo. The side booked their place in the Olympics by winning the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Championship and were deserved winners too. El Tri did not lose a game and conceded just twice during their run to the title in the Qualifying Championship.
France have included both Andre-Pierre Gignac and Florain Thauvin, who both play their club football in Mexico, in the team for the Olympic Games. Les Bleus will be keen to make an early impression and a win over Mexico would be the perfect start for them in their quest for Olympic Gold in Tokyo.
Key points Mexico - France
Mexico won all of their games while qualifying for the Olympics

Conclusion Mexico - France
Both sides are expected to fancy their chances in the game. Arguably, these two nations have nurtured some of the best young talent through the Olympics in the past. But based on their form and recent results, we are backing Mexico to win.
