Honduras vs USA, live stream 2017. Honduras vs. USA Predictions, Betting tips, and Live Stream: Los Catrachos to secure at least a point
Having lost to Costa Rica at home on Friday, Bruce Arena’s team are ahead of the Hondurans only on goal difference in the race for the third automatic qualification berth. Panama, a point behind, are also in the hunt and another slip-up could be hugely damaging if the USA wish to avoid an intercontinental play-off or even being knocked out entirely. Honduras vs. USA predictions for Tuesday’s World Cup Qualifiers clash at Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano. Los Catrachos look to build on their fine home form and hold off the shaken rivals. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Emilio Izaguirre was sent off for Honduras against Trinidad & Tobago, so Maynor Figueroa may have to slide over from centre-back to the left-hand side. United States have had a very solid CONCACAF Gold Cup run and they’ve won the silverware with an exciting 2-1 win over Jamaica, picking up their form and extending the 14-match unbeaten streak. However, returning to their World Cup Qualifiers campaign, they’ve failed to put on similar displays and travel to Honduras for their Matchday 8 clash in an unpredictable spell of form sitting 3rd with just eight points earned in seven games.
Having come off the bench after Izaguirre’s dismissal, Johnny Palacios is most likely to fill in alongside Henry Figueroa in the centre. USA have bagged four wins and a draw in their last five head-to-head encounters against Honduras but all of those occasions were in front of the home fans. Meanwhile, Honduras have beaten the rivals in their last home clash (2-1 back in 2013) and shown as very challenging on some of the more recent occasions, despite suffering a 6-0 loss earlier this year
