Spread : Australia +0.5
Total : 2 Goals
Honduras managed to finish at the 4th spot of the Hexagonal, and they will now play a couple of inter-continental matches against Australia, in order to determine which team will go to the World Cup. Australia were participating in the Asian World Cup Qualifiers, where they finished 3rd and have already played a couple of play-off matches against Syria.
Honduras Preview :
Honduras literally stole the 4th spot of the Hexagonal in the nick of time, as not only did they overcame Mexico, but they saw USA fall to Trinidad & Tobago.
They did an excellent job against Mexico in the final match-day, as despite the fact that their opponents took the lead twice in that match, Honduras managed to come back, and even scored the winning goal at the 60th minute for the final 3-2.
However, they did require a massive present from USA, who unexpectedly fell against Trinidad & Tobago, enabling Honduras to steal the 4th spot.
Honduras finished the Qualifiers with a 2-2-1 record at home, where they only lost to Panama. However, they held USA to a 1-1 draw, before that massive 3-2 win against Mexico.
There have been Over 2.5 goals in 6 of their 10 matches in the Hexagonal, but only two of their five home matches featured the same stat.
Australia Preview :
Australia were somehow participating in the Asian Qualifiers, where they managed to grab the 3rd spot of Group B with 19 points (5-4-1). Japan lead the group with 20 points, and Saudi Arabia finished 2nd with 19 points, due to a better goal difference.
Australia started off with a couple of wins against Iraq and UAE, but followed up with 4 consecutive goal draws. Their only loss came against Japan by 2-0 on the road.
They finished with a 1-3-1 record on the road, where besides their loss to Japan, they defeated UAE, but were held to draws against Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Iraq.
There have been Over 2.5 Goals in just 4 of their 10 matches overall, and in just 2 of their 5 road matches. Australia failed to keep a single clean sheet on the road, but failed to score in just one match.
Honduras vs Australia Prediction :
Honduras are traditionally stronger at home, but they have kept just a single clean sheet there in their last 8 matches. Australia might have won just one of their last 8 road matches, but they have only failed to score once in that span.
Honduras vs Australia Betting Tips :
While a home win is something to look at, judging by how the two have performed lately, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw goals from both sides here @ 2.12. However, the home team is also at similar odds, and I believe that Honduras can be really competitive at home @ 2.07.
