Argentina vs. Honduras: to raise morale

The international friendlies during the FIFA date allow players to raise their spirits and try new schemes by changing their own names in the face of what will be the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Indeed, next Friday Argentina will face Honduras with the aim of winning, like and thrash with the help of Messi and company.

On the one hand, Lionel Scaloni's Albiceleste need to continue their streak and to do so they will have an accessible duel against one of the weakest rivals in Central America. Indeed, the coach will take the opportunity to test new schemes and polish some football details ahead of the debut in Qatar 2022.

For its part, Honduras will seek to give a bump in sports predictions knowing that it is clearly inferior and does not have star players. To do this, Diego Martín Vázquez will propose an ultra-defensive scheme to take advantage of the few situations he has in attack.

Last Argentina matches

Lionel Scaloni's project generated multiple satisfactions for the Argentine people. Contrary to what sports forecasts expected, the technical director managed to break Argentina's drought in continental tournaments.

Argentina won a Copa América again after 28 years since that remembered title in 1993 under the command of Alfio Basile. And beyond the sporting success, the group union and Scaloni's proposal were the arguments that fuel the hope of the Argentines to dream of the third World title in Qatar 2022.

The Albiceleste team has not won a world title since 1986 when, thanks to Diego Armando Maradona, Argentina won the final against Federal Germany 3-2. Now, Lionel Messi and company will seek to repeat the title and there are plenty of reasons to get excited.

Looking back, Argentina finished as Brazil's escort in the Copa América as a result of 39 points in 17 games played after 11 wins, 6 draws and no losses. Indeed, the Albiceleste finished undefeated in the CONMEBOL Qualifiers with 27 goals in favor and only 8 goals conceded, which reflects a good offensive power and a good defense led by Martínez and Romero.

On the other hand, the good moment of Argentina is explained by the number of matches that remain undefeated, amounting to 33 matches without defeat in all competitions. Likewise, the last clashes of the Albiceleste in Copa América were as follows: they thrashed Bolivia 3-0 in keeping with sports betting , tied goalless against Paraguay, defeated Peru and Uruguay 1-0, tied goalless against Brazil , defeated Chile 2-1 away, Colombia 1-0 at home, thrashed Venezuela 3-0 and tied 1-1 against Ecuador on the last day.

It is worth noting that Argentina is part of Group C along with Poland, Mexico and Saudi Arabia, a team against which it will debut on November 22.

Last Honduras matches

The Bicolor of Diego Martín Vázquez, coach from Mendoza, does not find his best version. It is that Honduras has not managed to qualify for the World Cup since 2014 when it was part of the maximum World Cup event in Brazil.

It is clear that Honduras does not have top players or a long-term sustainable project. To make matters worse, the young promises do not manage to insert themselves in the first level leagues, so aspiring to qualify for a World Cup became practically a utopia considering the context of the CONCACAF Qualifiers.

Currently, Honduras has the weakest squad in Central America. The Bicolor finished in last place in the standings as a result of just 4 points in 14 games at stake with 4 draws, 10 losses and no wins. To make matters worse, Honduras converted only 7 goals and received 26 points reflecting that it was one of the teams with the most goals in the tournament.

The last confrontations of Honduras in Concacaf Qualifiers were as follows: they lost 2-1 to Costa Rica, they lost 0-2 to Canada according to sports betting , they lost 0-2 to El Salvador at home, they were beaten 3 -0 against the United States, tied 1-1 against Panama, lost 1-2 against Costa Rica and lost 2-1 against Jamaica.

Background between both

In 2003 they met with a 3-1 victory for Argentina, while the last clash between the two took place in 2016 when the Albiceleste defeated the Bicolor 1-0, in an interesting fact for the International Friendly predictions .

If both teams convert, the sum to be received will be 2.50, while the correct score is 3-0 in favor of Argentina whose quota amounts to 6.00. In addition, an interesting combination is that of Argentina 1-0 at halftime and 3-0 final result with a price of 13.00.

Finally, if Lionel Messi opens or closes the scoring, the fee to be received will be 3.00, while Lautaro Martínez's goal at any time has a fee of 1.66. Likewise, if Zuñiga scores the first or last goal of the match, the amount rises to 21.00.
