The CONCACAF Cup is in full swing and Honduras is leading the tables with six points, which means that it is already qualified for the next stage. Trinidad Tobago has hit rock bottom and only a wide margin victory tonight will keep their faint hopes alive, but they would still depend on what happens in the other match of Group B.
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 2.32
Trinidad Tobago hasn’t won a game in more than eight months, with the last victory being secured against the Dominican Republic. Since then, they lost 5/7 games and what’s more frightening is the fact that they didn’t score a single goal in any of those defeats. The offense is abysmal but coach Hart has no choice but to start the game with Jones and Roberts, hoping that midfielder Daniel will step up once again.
Honduras played six games in the last two months and its players got the chance to play against better opponents such as Israel, Costa Rica and the United States. Despite losing those friendly games, the lessons learned helped them win both CONCACAF games and they will advance to the next stage regardless of what happens tonight. Finishing on the first place will prevent them from playing with better teams, so they have good reasons to field a competitive team against Trinidad Tobago.
In the absence of major European championships and the international games, punters need to settle for what they get. The odds offered by Pinnacle Sports for Honduras to win the third game in a row and win Group B are terrific at 2.32. Trinidad Tobago is virtually eliminated from the competition and its recent record indicates an imminent meltdown.
