30/6: CONCACAF Gold Cup-Qatar v Honduras Betting Preview

Home » 30/6: CONCACAF Gold Cup-Qatar v Honduras Betting Preview

Football Predictions

Qatar will be looking for their first points in the Gold Cup when they take on Honduras in the second group encounter for each on Friday at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix.

The Carlos Quieroz side was stunned in their opener after going 2-1 down to a less fancied Haiti while Honduras dropped a third successive fixture this year when they were beaten 4-0 by Mexico.

Another loss for Qatar in this tie would put them in a vulnerable position and a draw between Mexico and Haiti would officially eliminate them from this competition, marking the first time they had failed to reach the knockout stage of a continental tournament, since finishing bottom of its group with a single point at the 2019 Copa America. 

H2H/Stats

Thursday’s game will mark the third meeting between the two nations. Qatar have won their two previous games in this fixture, with their most recent triumph being a 1-0 victory in a friendly clash back in October last year.

Team News

Yousef Aymen has appeared in the last two matches for Qatar, earning his first two senior caps as a result, as he, Ahmed Suhail, Bassam Al-Rawi, Jassem Gaber, and Mohammed Muntari were the new faces in the starting 11 who did not begin their abandoned match versus New Zealand. The same faces are expected to line up against Honduras as they try to right the wrongs of their opening game.

Alexy Vega and Luis Vega picked up just their second international caps for Honduras over the weekend, while Luis Lopez is two appearances away from 60, a mark that Bryan Acosta was able to reach, while Alberth Elis is one away from that same mark and Jerry Bengtson has now featured 67 times for this team.

Francisco Martinez is the only La H player in this competition without an international appearance, while Joseph Rosales can reach the double-digit mark for caps if he features on Thursday.

Probable Line Ups

Qatar XI: Barsham; Al-Rawi, Suhail, Salman, Ahmed; Waad, Fatehi, Marafee; Ali, Muntari, Muneer

Honduras XI: L. Lopez; Nunez, Garcia, L. Vega, Rosales; Flores, Alvarez, Altamirano, A. Lopez; Elis, Bengtson

Verdict

Honduras are without a clean sheet in their last three games across all competitions. Los Catrachos have the worst defensive record in the Gold Cup so far with a goal concession tally of four and this is a perfect time for Qatar to pounce as they will be looking to recover from their opening-day loss.
