|The Costa Rican has a strong defense against Honduras|
Honduras and Costa Rica play a 0-0 draw in San Pedro Sula to bolster both FIFA World Cup Qualification (WCQ) hopes, making both ‘Los Catrachos’ less than 90 minutes away and’ Los Ticos’ has no record left, both of which date back to November 2019.
Our three-point lead is important for both sides here to not be able to taste the victory in their last five matches, but it was Costa Rica who started well to almost open them up. Kendall Waston has risen to the top to support a header from a goal by Johan Venegas’ free-kick and Luis López should be in charge of him to score at the level of language. Setting up items like this will usually open the score, and some quick insights from Yeltsin Tejeda almost do just that. The Costa-Rican corner swings in need of conservation by López, who seem to be trapped-protected by rapid changes at the crossroads.
Honduras rained in the heavy 13 shots of Keylor Nava’s goal in the first half, but never really tried to win the league, leaving two experts with 45 minutes to find the win. Dirtiness was clearly on the agenda for Honduras tonight and the hosts proved a good moment only after the break when the lung-smash Alberth Elis ran relentlessly as he teed Rigoberto Rivas, but he can only flame from the edge of the box.
Costa Rica was the unbelievable ball at the 2014 World Cup, but ‘Los Ticos’ way to reach their third WC final is now hanging in the balance, with no wins in four qualifying matches. Kervin Arriaga wasted the last time for Honduras when he was hit head-on by Diego Rodríguez cross and with that, going ‘Los Catrachos’ hopes of victory and the race went out to fifth in the final H2H final.
