Honduras vs Ecuador by iSpree
This will be the second game of the group E tonight and a win would be very important for both sides as they lost the first game. Honduras 3-0 against France and Equador 2-1 v Switzerland. Equador conceded a late goal so it was a bit unlucky for them.
Honduras is in a unfavorable position. They lost 3-0 so the goal difference for them put them on the last place in this group after the first round. This will be crucial scoring some goals in this game. If not, the last meeting in Group E against Switzerland might be their last game, because a win over 3 goals seems to be impossible. Therefore Honduras will want to try it in this game, to improve their goal difference of -3, in other words, they must try it. A loose would mean that they are almost out of the World Cup, because Equador +4 goal difference compared to them, if Equador win by 1 goal, will be too high. Furthermore if they loose and the Europeans draw today, they are out with no chances to qualify for the next round. This reasons should be enough to say that a loose for Honduras would be deadly and they dont want to risc this. A draw on the other side might be critical as well. A win over Switzerland is to hard for them. Summing it up, Honduras needs a win and they will try to score some goals. In the first half trying it with counter-attacks and in the second more open and more offensive. On the other side this could be the chance for Equador to score also.
Equador isnt in a good position too. They lost the first match unlucky with 2-1 in the extra time. I claim that their defense isnt good and make some mistakes considering that they took the lead and still lost it. With a good defense they should have defend their lead to the end. Equador cant live with a draw as the last match will be against a good France-team. They must take their chance trying to win. This will cause some counter-attacks with dangerous chances for Honduras as they will begin with a defensive tactic. But if they shoot a goal Honduras must go offensive and as reason they might be conceding another goal. With the pace of Antonio Valencia they should create some good chances trough the flanks and score also at least one goal. The other Valencia who is playing in attack was very good in the first game, so he can probably put some headers in to back of the net.
Considering both teams going for a important win and Honduras with a bad goal difference, i believe that this match will contain some goals, so i will go for 2 or more goals here.
