Match Result: Mexico
When you cast your eyes over the recent results each nation have served up you'll quickly see why we're making the prediction that Mexico win this match. Mexico have drawn their last two matches but they're still on a streak that has seen them lose just one in 15 with 12 wins. Honduras, however, can only dream of a streak like that; they've not won any of their last six games with three draws and three losses. Mexico have won three of the last five head-to-head matches too.
Both teams to score: Yes
The Mexico formbook might be vastly superior to Honduras but for this prediction, we don't care who wins; we just want both sides to find the net. Despite the questionable form, Honduras have only failed to score in one of their last 10 games with Mexico blanking just twice. The two sides aren't whipping boys by any stretch but neither are they defensively formidable. The combination of scoring goals on a regular basis without being solid at the back means that the BTTS market offers good opportunity for punters.
Handicap: Mexico -1, draw
The last of our tips focuses on the handicap market. What we're essentially saying with this bet is that we believe Mexico will win the match but only by one goal. Of Mexico's last five wins, only one has been by a margin greater than one goal. Honduras are seldom stuffed out of sight either; in fact, you have to go back to June 2019 to find a game where they lost by more than the solitary goal.
Mexico vs Honduras: Teams under the microscope
Mexico have drawn their last two matches (at 90 minutes), which is actually seen as a minor wobble based on the high standards they've set themselves over recent years – they've only lost two games within 90 minutes since the back end of 2018. It shouldn't be a huge surprise that they win games of football though because their squad has some real talent in it. Hirving Lozano is one of the stars but players such as Alan Pulido and Edson Alvarez shouldn't be overlooked either.
A view beyond the last couple of games might paint Mexico in a better light but it hardly helps Honduras who haven't recorded a victory since their 4-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago back in November 2019. The good news for them is that they don't tend to get embarrassed in defeat. Maynor Figueroa, 38, is a big part of that as he wears the armband along with marshaling his defence but the players further forward – like Choco Lozano, Alberth Elis and Romell Quioto – shouldn't be ignored.
