Mexico – El Tri yet to be tested defensively?

Tournament favourites and record eight-time Gold Cup champions Mexico rather eased themselves into the quarter-finals, topping Group A after responding well to an early setback. El Tri were surprisingly held on their first outing of the competition, though, drawing 0-0 with Trinidad & Tobago. But won their remaining games against Guatemala and El Salvador to qualify with seven points out of nine.

Along with USA, Mexico preserved their flawless record in the group stage, reaching the latter stages in all sixteen editions since the tournament’s inception in 1991. They were the only side to make the final eight without allowing a single goal to be conceded, though. With that now six consecutive defensive shutouts for a side that has only been breached five times in eleven matches played across 2021.

Four of their last five encounters seen them win to nil and this is likely to prove popular once more, even if the quality of opposition rises. That is because Mexico have not conceded in seven of the last eight match-ups with Honduras, winning four and losing only once – 3-2 away from home in a World Cup Qualifier in 2017. At this tournament meanwhile, both victories came about after leading at the break.

Honduras – Can Los Catrachos realistically target a sixth semi-final?

None of the four groups at this summer’s tournament produced as many goals as Group C, which Honduras were on course to top before a 2-0 defeat in their final outing against Qatar consigned them to finishing as the runners-up. Nevertheless, progress has been serene thus far. Qualifying for the latter stages for the ninth time, in this their fifteenth Gold Cup participation, with a game to spare.

An emphatic 4-0 victory over Grenada set them up nicely, before edging a thrilling encounter with Panama that swung one way and then the other but was ultimately won 3-2 by Los Catrachos. However, defeat in their final outing, against a team who wouldn’t ordinarily be here had they not been specially invited, has deflated some of the momentum built up from those earlier successes.

This tournament has, however, built on the encouraging displays seen prior to the tournament. Honduras pushed USA’s strongest possible XI to the very end in a June Nations League semi-final, losing 1-0 to an 89th minute winner. This before sealing third place with victory, on penalties, over Costa Rica. More pertinent, though, was the goalless draw earned against Mexico in a pre-tournament friendly.

Mexico Vs Honduras Betting Advice

The fact these teams navigated the group stage with minimal amount of fuss shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Mexico not winning all their games certainly was. Although they did create more than enough to turn that opening scoreless draw with Trinidad & Tobago into a win. As for Honduras, Fabio Coito’s men were ruthless initially, scoring seven in the first two games. But had no answer to Qatar last time.


Mexico Vs Honduras – Key Facts:

  • After topping Group A with two wins out of three (D1), Mexico maintained their perfect record of having made the quarter-finals in all sixteen Gold Cups.
  • Honduras reached the last eight for the ninth time, in this their fifteenth attempt. Scoring seven times in the group stage (W2 L1) but finishing behind Qatar.
  • One loss from the last eight encounters (W4 D3) versus Honduras for Mexico, recording a clean sheet in all but one of these contests.


Los Catrachos have certainly shown enough so far that would suggest they can score against the only defence not to have conceded at all during the group stage. I’m still not convinced that they will, however. Seven of the last eight meetings between the countries seen either one team or, as happened on three occasions, neither find the back of the net. This includes a recent friendly in June. So I expect another measured performance, and victory, from El Tri.
