As part of one of the matches of the qualifying tournament for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the players of the national teams of Honduras and Canada will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this duel? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Honduran national team won the CONCACAF Cup tournament, however, it achieved such success 41 years ago. In the last draw, the team made its way to the quarterfinals, where they could not oppose Mexico (0:3). In the selection for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the "blue and white" failed to get a single victory in 8 rounds. The hosts have only 3 draws and the last place in the standings. It is impossible not to note the worst performance of the team in the offensive line, which differed only 5 times. In their last meeting, Honduras lost to Costa Rica (1:2).
The Canadian national team was able to make it to the semifinals of the tournament last season, but it failed to defeat Mexico (1:2). Canada participated in the final tournaments of the World Championships only 1 time. In 1986 in Mexico. This year, the Reds have a great opportunity to repeat this success. After 8 rounds of the current qualifying tournament, the Northerners do not know defeats – 4 wins and draws, which brought 16 points and the first place in the standings. In the last two meetings, Herdman's team defeated Costa Rica and Mexico.
Statistics and figures:
- Canada is the favorite of the meeting;
- Honduras has not won in 11 meetings in a row;
- Canada has an 8-match unbeaten streak;
- The last meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 1:1.
I think that Honduras will not have a chance to win in this meeting. Even snatching a draw will be problematic. Our bet in this case will be on the success of "maple leaves" for a solid quote.
