Honduras v Ecuador could well be the battle to avoid the wooden spoon in World Cup Group E with France & Switzerland expected to fight it out for top spot.
Honduras scraped through in the last remaining place in the fourth and final round of CONCACAF qualification for the 2014 World Cup, while Ecuador gave a good account of themselves in South American qualification and will be favourites for this game.
As members of different confederations, this is the first competitive meeting between Honduras and Ecuador, but the nations have contested five friendly matches in the past. Ecuador have had the better of the previous meetings between the sides with 3 wins compared to Honduras' 1, while the most recent encounter was an entertaining 2-2 draw last November.
Honduras will be relying on strikers Jerry Bengtson and Carlos Costly to get their goals, while towering centre-back Víctor Bernárdez may also be a threat from set pieces. Christian Benitez and Felipe Caicedo are the leading candidates for goalscorer bets from Ecuador and it's worth noting that the latter is a likely spot-kick taker for Tri-color.
