Honduras vs Australia – 2018 World Cup Qualification:The Honduran national team hosts Australia on the first leg of this play-off…
That will decide a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Honduras needs to use their home advantage as ally, which normally happens since the team won 1 and drew another of their last 2 home matches on the qualification stage and with that ensured a spot on this play-off.
As for Australia they have several absences, with the main one being their biggest star Tim Cahill who will miss the match.
Besides that, they will have a long trip to a country where they will be greeted in completely hostile fashion.
Honduras vs Australia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see a big opportunity on this match for two reasons. One of them is the absence of several starters on the Australian national team, including Cahill,
and the other is due to the unfortunate jokes made by the Australian press, mocking the opposing country and the distance between them.
They also said that after Syria and Honduras, they would play the Islamic State next, and that hasn’t pleased the Hondurans at all, which means the scene at the stadium will be very heavy and hostile for the visitors, more than usual.
Therefore, yes, I believe on a victory for the hosts, who besides being an organized team, won’t have any important absences, unlike Australia.
