24/03: Daily Predictions: Costa Rica vs Honduras

Betting Tips

On Saturday afternoon at Toyota Stadium, a playoff match between Costa Rica and Honduras will decide who will compete for the final spot in the 2024 Copa America. In the CONCACAF Nations League quarterfinals, Panama defeated Los Ticos 6-1 overall, while La H lost their match against Mexico due to penalties.

Costa Rica vs Honduras

On the one hand, Gustavo Alfaro’s squad, who is rated 54th in the FIFA rankings, comes into the match in poor form following weak showings in the previous year’s competitions, where they were unable to advance past the Nations League and Gold Cup quarterfinals. They were indeed thrashed by Panama in the latter game, losing 6-1 overall, so they couldn’t enter this match confidently. Despite winning their most recent head-to-head match in 2021, they had struggled in their previous meetings with Honduras.

Honduras, ranked 78th, can be said to be arriving with a more confident and upbeat attitude because, despite not making it out of the group stage in the Gold Cup, they managed to win one of their two quarterfinal matches against Mexico in November and even forced them to penalties where they were only a few hits away from defeating the greatest CONCACAF team in history. Furthermore, they had a recent victory over Costa Rica, having placed third in the Nations League finals in 2021.

Verdict

We anticipate much more poised play from Costa Rica after Navas and several other veterans returned to the team from the Nations League quarterfinal match.

The Hondurans nearly upset El Tri in the last eight games, but we’re leaning with Los Ticos because they’ve frequently defeated La H because of their inconsistent play in the attacking third.

Costa Rica might have an advantage because they scored goals in their prior meetings with Honduras. However, Honduras’ tenacity and ability to score goals away from home might also be important factors.

Both clubs will be vying for vital tournament points in what is expected to be a hotly contested game. But given how evenly matched these two sides have always been in their meetings, the final score may be 1-1.
