The 16th edition of the Gold Cup is underway. It’s the second round of group D that put in front of Panama against Honduras, two insidious teams that will look to go past the group stages, and why not more than that. Honduras started the Gold Cup in a perfect way, smashing 4-0 Grenada comfortably; meanwhile, Panama managed to one point in an impressive 3-3 draw against Qatar. A win here means qualification for Honduras, but we can say the same for Panama, seeing that with four possible points and the last game against the least favorite team in the Group (Grenade), the qualification would be possible. It is a game where also the draw might be helpful for both teams, so don’t be surprised if you see a defensive game as both teams would do anything to get also a point, seeing that every point is valuable in this stage.
Head to head matches
Plenty of matches between these teams as 48 previous encounters are played. The historical head to heads says that Panama has won 12 of them, 11 games have ended in a draw, and 25 wins for Honduras. Honduras has had the best out of their matches in more than 50% of the cases. Can they continue this trend also in the 2021 Gold Cup? Let’s see if Panama allows them.
Injuries are a real headache for the coaches seeing that they would want the whole team to be available. But fortunately, all the called-up men for both teams are ready and fit for this match.
