Australia vs Honduras Preview

Australia vs Honduras

Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – ANZ Stadium

Date: 15th November 2017

Kick-off time – 09:00 GMT

Coming away from Honduras with a draw will have helped Australia’s confidence ahead of this game.

The truth is they were the best team in that game and deserved to even win; they will look to finish the job here now.

They rested Tim Cahill in the first leg as he was carrying a slight niggle but he is expected to start this game and the former Everton man could be the difference.

At 37 Cahill still remains the Socceros’ talisman and has scored 50 goals in 103 games for the Australians including the 2 goals in their 2-1 playoff win over Syria.

They are a strong side when they play at home having won eleven of their last twelve world cup qualifiers played at home.

With a home crowd solidly behind them, they are favourites to get the win but this game is open and the Hondurans can surprise a long way from home.

Honduras were so poor at home in the first leg that they had only one shot on target.

They don’t have the away record that suggests they could cause an upset here as they have only one win from their last nine away world cup qualifying games.

In this series, they have lost 6-0 to the United States and 3-0 to Mexico and they have conceded 2.6 goals per game in their away matches.
