Honduras v Switzerland Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

Switzerland need to gather themselves quickly after the hammering which they took against France in their second match. It has left their qualification hopes hanging by a thread as they are hurting now in the goal difference. They go into the match level on points with second placed Ecuador, but have to overturn a -2 goal difference to make it through to the knockout stage.

How much will that 5-2 defeat against France have hurt the Swiss? Quite a bit probably and they now need to find something. A draw would do for them if Ecuador lose against France. This one is going to come down to the wire most likely in what will be the second ever meeting between the two nations. The previous match was back at the 2010 World Cup, a game which ended 0-0, in what was also the last group game then.

Switzerland have never lost against a CONCACAF side at the World (W1 D2) so that puts them in good standing. That game against France may have just been an anomaly, because prior to that, the Swiss had only lost one of their previous nineteen games. They conceded as many goals in that game against France as they had conceded in their previous nine World Cup matches put together (5). The Swiss have scored four goals at the World Cup so far, and three of them have come in the last ten minutes of the match. Still, this is their easiest looking game of the group, so they should win it.

Honduras are still winless in their brief World Cup history, not having won any of their eight matches played so far at the finals (D3 L5). They at least managed to get on the scoresheet in their 2-1 loss against Ecuador, and Carlo Costly goal has been their only one in their last 569 minutes of World Cup play. So they aren’t a big threat and probably this one going under 2.5 goals is the way to go. Honduras have also failed to score in their last four World Cup games against European nations and are winless in six (D3 L3) against UEFA opposition. Honduras have won just one of their last six in their current form, are out of contention in the group and the Swiss should win.
