Canada take on the visitors Honduras in the round 6 match of CONCACAF Nations League – League A. The match will be played on Wednesday, March 29th at BMO Field (Toronto)
Canada are not particularly well-regarded in the football world, unlike in hockey. For a long time, the national team only made an appearance in the World Cup once, way back in 1986. Only the current generation has been able to make a breakthrough, led by their young but already star leaders, Davies from Bayern Munich and David from Lille (although it's worth adding at least Kyle Laren from Valladolid), the "maple leaves" became the first of the regional teams to secure their spot in Qatar. However, it wasn't much better there than it was for their predecessors four decades earlier: 0-1 against Belgium, 1-4 against Croatia, and 1-2 against Morocco. On the other hand, the group included the "Red Devils" with their top lineup, as well as a couple of future medalists, and only once did John Herdman's team suffer a defeat. Overall, the tournament can be considered successful. But now they need to focus on trying to get revenge against Honduras for their defeat last year. Curacao in this group looked like a clear outsider. And now they were dealt with 2-0.

Honduras's peak was a decade ago. In 2010, they made it to the World Cup for the first time since their debut in 1982. And in the next cycle, four years later, they repeated that success. However, whether in South Africa or in Brazil, that was practically all they managed - only one draw in six top-level football matches. But then the "Los Catrachos" positions were surrendered. It is worth noting that in the previous cycle, they managed to make it to the final round. However, there, in 14 matches, only 4 points were earned, resulting in last place with a huge gap. Nevertheless, this team should not be underestimated completely. Yes, most of the footballers play in their home country, but there are also representatives from European clubs, including Antony "Choco" Lozano, who once played for Barcelona and has over a hundred matches in the Spanish La Liga. Currently, the striker has been playing for Cadiz for three years in a row (although he hasn't scored in the current season). In addition, the national team defeated Canada at home last year. So now a draw is enough to maintain the lead in the group of three. Prior to the decisive match, they had a friendly with El Salvador. They defeated them 1-0 in Los Angeles.
In June of last year, during the Nations League, Honduras won 2-1 at home against Canada. However, the most important thing is that Canada proved to be stronger in the World Cup qualifiers: 1-1 at home and 2-0 away. The "Maple Leafs" are playing at home and have a more star-studded lineup. It is recommended to bet that Davies and company will win with a handicap of "-1.5 goals scored".
Prediction for the match: Canada to win with -1.5 handicap.
