Our football match prediction:
Trinidad and Tobago will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Costa Rica when they welcome Honduras at Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. The Soca Warriors suffered a loss in each of their last three qualifying games and, as a result, they dropped to the ultimate position in the standings. Trinidad are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match and we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Los Catrachos are on a four-game winless run in their qualifying group, but a win over Dennis Lawrence’s troops could see them climb to the play-offs place and we predict that the visitors will leave their hearts on the field in the Ato Boldon Stadium clash. It has been 16 years since Honduras recorded their last win at Trinidad and Tobago and we believe that they are going to put an end to the negative trend.

Highlighted Team (Honduras):
Honduras are a national football team from Central America that qualified for the World Cup finals for the first time in 1982. Los Catrachos did well to share the spoils with hosts Spain at the showpiece tournament, but they eventually failed to book their place in the knockout stages. Honduras participated at the 2010 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals as well, but they failed to impress at the tournaments in South Africa and Brazil. Winning of the 1981 CONCACAF Championship is undisputedly the team’s biggest success and it has to be noted that they finished the final round in top position in the standings, two points clear of El Salvador and three above Mexico. Los Catrachos were beaten by Canada in the 1985 Gold Cup final, with the team finishing the 1991 tournament as runners-up as well. Wilson Palacios, who used to play for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City as regarded as one of the most notable footballers who represented Honduras national team on the international stage.
