Spain and Honduras World Cup form

Spain 0-1 Switzerland
52m Gelson Fernandes (Swi)

WCI Rating: 7.5
1st half: 4.0
2nd half: 3.5

The Spaniards had plenty of the ball and created enough chances up forward but they were unable to create a clear path to goal largely due to the excellent defensive work of Switzerland.

Honduras 0-1 Chile
34m Jean Beausejour (Chi)

WCI Rating: 4.0
1st half: 2.0
2nd half: 2.0

Honduras defended fairly as best they could against a relentess opposition but the Hondurans never really looked like scoring a goal. When they went forward they had little support and players were not prepared to overlap to create more options.

Spain vs Honduras Preview

Spain will be looking to punish Honduras after losing to Switzerland first-up and this is a must win game for Spain.

Honduras had little impact against Chile but only conceded the one goal in a fair effort but they are going to be under the pump against a Spain side going all out for the win.

Spain vs Honduras Match Prediction

Spain should have put 2 or 3 past Switzerland and we think Spain is going to run amok here against an Inferior Honduras side and show why they were the opening favourites for this tournament.

We fancy them to get a few goals and going to have a crack at 4 goals or more for a bit of value combined with tension.

Hoping for a Spanish goal fest and if you would like a side interest then have a crack at David Villa to score anytime at $1.62 as he is quite likely to get on the score sheet.
