Honduras vs French Guiana
2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup
Date: Wednesday, 12th July 2017
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston).
Following a disappointing start to the Gold Cup campaign, Honduras have every thing to play for when they come up against French Guiana on Tuesday night.
Honduras will be kicking themselves after squandering a lot of goal-scoring chances in the group opener against Costa Rica. They had enough chances to kill off the match inside the first half hour of the match. But Marcos Urena made full use of a rare chance just before half time to give Costa Ricans a vital win in this tight group.
Meanwhile, French Guiana were always the second best team in the tournament opener against Canada. But the minnows put a good fight before losing out 4-2 at the final whistle. Despite the score line, they did give Canada a run for their money when they scored 2 goals inside 60 seconds to narrow the lead to 3-2.
Honduras vs French Guiana: Head-to-head
The two meeting between the two team happened during the qualification phase of 2015 Gold Cup. French Guiana did bag a surprise 3-1 win in their home leg, but Honduras came back strong to overturn the deficit with a 3-0 win in the second leg.
Honduras vs French Guiana: Prediction
There is little doubt on the fact that Honduras are clear favorites to win this game. However, they must improve their finishing.
There is no pressure on the lowly ranked French Guiana to get a result here. This will help them play without any sorts of pressure or fear. If Honduras fail to take the chances that come their way, they might land into trouble just as in the group opener against Costa Rica.
