On the upcoming Wednesday, the national teams of Panama and Honduras will play against each other within the sixth round of the 2018 World Cup qualification tournament in the CONCACAF zone. Both teams have some chances on getting into the final part of the tournament, but to do so, they need to win the forthcoming encounter. The motivation in the future competitors will be high and there will be a real battle.
The Panama national team is on the fourth position in the tournament table after five played rounds within the 2018 WC qualification in the CONCACAF zone. The side has six points and it is two points behind the USA team, which is on the third place, which in its turn gives the right to advance to the World Cup in Russia.
The Honduras national team is sixth in the peloton. The team has four points in the asset, four points less, than the Americans, which are in the advancement zone to the WC. If Honduras will manage to get an away victory in the upcoming game, the chances on a ticket to Russia will be very good, but so far Honduras has shown some weak results away: two defeats in the games against Mexico and the USA. Nine goals were conceded in the matches and none scored.
The Panamanian team shows lower results exclusively in this qualification tournament and probably wouldn’t change the tactics in the upcoming game against Honduras. The future guests in their turn didn’t score a single goal away in the two played matches. There is a big probability, that the forthcoming game will not be efficient.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals in the match.
