Honduras vs Chile
International – Friendlies
Date: Wednesday, 11 September 2019
Kick-off at 02:30 UK/ 03:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano (San Pedro Sula).
Chile is scrambling to ooze out a final something from the golden crop of players they have got.
After winning back-to-back Copas, they finally bowed out in the semis of the last edition. Previously, they had suffered the heartbreak of not qualifying for the World Cup, and importantly, they have seen the downfall of their talisman Alexis Sanchez.
The lot desperately needs a recovery, and they will surely be targeting nothing but the title in the upcoming Copa America 2020.
Just the last day, they took heads-on rivals, Argentina, as part of their international friendly schedule. Despite the name though, there was nothing in it to be qualified as a friendly tie. The clash which saw three yellow cards within the first fifteen minutes ended without any goal.
Opponents Honduras should tread carefully as the Chileans will be taking this match-up as an opportunity to find back their form. The former is definitely taking on a rival that is outside of their league, and even if their stature is discounted, recent performance is not at all convincing enough to guarantee at least a satisfactory performance against the Copa America semi-finalists.

Honduras vs Chile Prediction
La Roja has been struggling for the last few games, and definitely the level of opponents they have had to take on during this stretch is a reason for their barren run. In that regards, Honduras is a lighter rival, and we can expect the Chileans to make a huge statement with this tie.
Take into account the fact that Fabian Coito’s men had finished last in the initial group stage of their Gold Cup campaign, whereas their opposite number a major player in the Latin American region, and a usual suspect to lift the title in the continental championship of their confederation. Also, note that CONMEBOL is miles ahead in quality over CONCACAF.
Moreover, Gary Medel’s men won the previous two clashes against this opponent and had scored four goals in the recent such tie.
As things stand, expect a comfortable win for 2015 and 2016 Copa America winners.
