Chile vs Honduras
International – Friendly
Date: Wednesday, 21 November 2018
Kick-Off at 00:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal Bicentenario German Becker (Temuco)
Honduras have beaten Panama with a single goal from Antony Lozano from the penalty kick spot and they now travel to Chile hoping to build on the tough defensive display and cause an upset at Estadio Municipal Bicentenario German Becker.
Chile come into the match after seeing a thriller 2-3 loss to Costa Rica, where late goals from Sebastian Vegas and Alexis Sanchez (who also missed a penalty) proved nothing more than a consolation – losing on the high team spirits after a win over Mexico seen beforehand.
Honduras will now hope for a similar upset but we do feel Chile have more firepower and should still prove a tough target for the visitors, despite a somewhat unpredictable spell of form in front of the home crowd – which was very much obvious in the volatile contest against Los Ticos as well. Reinaldo Rueda will want more stability and this is a late shot at finishing the year on a high, which should have them motivated as well.
Chile vs Honduras: Head-to-head
- Interestingly, this will be only the third head-to-head encounter for the sides ever.
- Honduras have bagged a home win back in 2009 but Chile took revenge at a crucial time, bagging a 0-1 World Cup win in 2010.
- We have gotten used to narrow clashes between the sides and now hope for more of the same.
Chile vs Honduras: Prediction
We will back Chile to win with just a one-goal Winning Margin now as well, sticking our necks out for it at 3.50 – which does feel like more than just a lively longshot now with their unpredictable spell of form at the back.
We still hope we’re in for an exciting game and we feel the visitors will get on the scoresheet as well, going also for a YES on Both teams to score at 1.60. We have seen Chile regularly enjoy such clashes lately and this should prove another clash where they employ an attacking approach and go all out for the win by the end.
