Honduras – Where are the goals coming from?

Just like upcoming opponents USA, it has been a less than impressive opening to this final stage of CONCACAF qualifying from Los Catrachos. The weekend’s dour draw in El Salvador mirrored the 0-0 scoreline the US managed there three days earlier, but at least looks tolerable coupled with the point they managed to take from their tricky trip to Canada which ended 1-1. Surrendering a half-time lead in Toronto.

With those early inroads, Honduras extended their run without winning to four (D2 L2). Scoring one goal in more than six hours of football. The latter is possibly the most ominous statistic, ahead of facing a USA team with one goal conceded in its last six contests. They did conjure up eight of them across their five home qualifiers at this stage four years ago, though, trading goals in a 1-1 draw in this very fixture.

Key Stat: Honduras were unable to locate the opposing team’s net in five of the last nine matches, scoring one goal across their previous four competitive fixtures.


USA Win To Nil



USA – Pressure firmly on after less than impressive opening?

We still await take-off in this Octagonal (final stage) of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying from the United State’s men team. After successive stodgy draws, the first a scoreless affair in El Salvador before playing out a frustrating 1-1 draw with Canada on home turf, the Stars and Stripes reside outside the automatic qualifying berths, down in fifth, ahead of this final fixture of the September international break.

A win in Honduras would go some way to rectifying the early damage. However, while they do remain a force to be reckoned with at one end of the pitch (one conceded in the last six), not much is sticking, or clicking, up the other. Scoring no more than once in eight of the last nine. For all their offensive struggles, though, this is the same side which has won 10 of 15 encounters (D4 L1) inside 90 minutes in 2021.

Key Stat: USA’s last six matches have seen on average one goal, while the recent 1-1 draw with Canada was only their second to feature both teams scoring in nine.

Honduras Vs USA Betting Advice

These have made identical starts to CONCACAF’s Octagonal stage of World Cup qualifying, both disappointed with having taken two points out of a possible six after successive draws. Honduras will be the more content, though, as their points were earned away in El Salvador and Canada, with this their first opportunity to utilise the partisan home support in San Pedro Sula.


Honduras Vs USA – Key Facts:

  • The last time the USA lost any game against Honduras was in a World Cup qualifier back in 2013, going unbeaten in seven subsequent meetings (W5 D2).
  • USA have conceded once in their last six matches, while five of their previous six victories (excluding those after extra-time) were ‘to nil’.
  • Conversely, Honduras are coming off a dire four-game spell that has seen them score once – in the 1-1 draw away in Canada earlier in the international break.


Having opposed goals the last time the USA were in action, I am undeterred despite seeing said game with Canada finish 1-1. This is because goals have been scarce in their recent encounters (just five in the last six when excluding those scored in extra-time). With Honduras lacking for confidence in the attacking third (one goal in four games), this has the makings of another scrappy affair.
