Mexico vs Honduras: Prediction and Betting Tips
Mexico showing great form to retain their title
Mexico are looking to retain the Gold Cup title they won in 2019. After an impressive group stage performance where they won two and drew one of their three matches, coach Gerardo Martino’s team will take on Honduras whom they haven’t beaten in their last two meetings.
In all of their three matches, Mexico were the dominant side and had over 20 goal attempts on average per match. 30 goal attempts were recorded in their latest match against Trinidad & Tobago but coach Martino’s team couldn’t break the deadlock as the match ended 0-0.
Mexico Key Points
- Mexico are undefeated in the last seven matches
- In the last six matches, Mexico haven’t conceded a goal
- The average goals scored by Mexico in the last five matches is 2.2
Honduras in a tough task against the favorites
Honduras were leading Group D after matchday two with six points. On matchday three, they lost to Qatar 2-0 and finished second in the group. They will now face Mexico in a very tough match. The positive for coach Coito’s team is that they won and drew their last two matches against Mexico.
This is Honduras’s 21st appearance in the Gold Cup having won the title in 1981. In their match against Qatar, Coito’s men were outplayed by the Gulf state despite having much of the ball possession in the second half as they couldn’t create enough chance to threaten the Qatari goal when they had no shots at goal.
Honduras Key Points
- Honduras have two wins in their last eight games
- In their last ten matches, Honduras failed to score in two matches
- The average number of goals scored by Honduras in the last ten matches is 1.7
Mexico vs Honduras Prediction
With the Gold Cup tournament reaching the knockout phase, all teams will change their strategies and we may see fewer goals. Some coaches will focus on defense and try to take the match to penalties where the chances are almost 50-50.
This strategy might be adopted by coach Coito of Honduras. He knows his team is inferior to Mexico and will do his best to close down all gaps from which the Mexicans can create danger.
Mexico are a very attacking side. They will make sure not to fall into the same trap as they did against Trinidad & Tobago when they missed so many scoring chances.
In the combos section on Vbet, an interesting bet catches the eye. Mexico win and under 4.5 goals with odds of 1.67 is a very interesting bet and we will back it.
