Match Preview

Qatar

Qatar go head to head with Honduras on Friday as both these teams look to open their account in Group B of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. It was a feeling of déjà vu for the 2022 World Cup hosts, as they conceded a 97th minute goal in their opener against Haiti to end up on the losing side. This 2-1 loss meant Qatar faced defeat in the group stage of the Gold Cup for the first time, topping the group last time around with 7 points.

The result also mean, Carlos Queiroz’s men have now failed to keep a clean sheet in 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions – demonstrating their weakness at the back. Another loss coupled with a Haiti and Mexico sharing points would inevitably kick Qatar out of the tournament – this would be their first exit in the group stage of a continental tournament since their failure to qualify for the knockouts in the 2019 Copa America.

Honduras

Honduras, just like Qatar are without points on the table – sitting fourth in the table on goal difference. Diego Vazquez’s side faced a 4-0 humbling against Mexico in their opener, after Luis Romo opened the scoring in the first minute – after which they never looked back. This was their worst defeat in the tournament since their 5-0 loss against Brazil back in 1996. Honduras will be sweating after their defensive performance recently, having conceded 9 goals in their last 3 matches in all competitions; and more than once in their last 4 Gold Cup appearances. They have missed out on qualifying for the knockout stages on one occasion in their last three appearances – however, just like the Qataris, Vazquez’s side will be eliminated with another loss combined with a draw for the top 2 Mexico and Haiti.

Honduras will be sweating after their defensive performance recently, having conceded 9 goals in their last 3 matches in all competitions; and more than once in their last 4 Gold Cup appearances. They have conceded a first half goal and have trailed heading into the mid-game break in each of their last three games – ending up on the losing side in all of them. Honduras have faced Qatar only once previously in this competition 2 years ago, with the Qataris emerging victorious and finishing above the former by one point in the group.
