Ecuador cannot afford to slip up when they take on Honduras in Curitiba if they are to have a realistic chance of qualifying for the Second Round from World Cup Group E.
On paper this match looks by far the best chance for Honduras to get some points on the board, but Ecuador have enough about themselves to succeed in Curitiba and will be looking to do a professional job so that they remain in contention for a place in the Second Round. At slight odds-on, Ecuador look a safe bet in the Match Odds market and can be confidently added to your accumulator, but those looking for a bigger return can get a good price on Tri-color to win 2-0 in the Correct Score market. Another way of squeezing some extra value out of the match is to take Ecuador to win to nil in the hope that Reinaldo Rueda's side can keep a clean sheet for a slightly bigger payout.
Punters will be torn between backing Christian Benitez or Felipe Caicedo as a First Goalscorer, but the latter's likely responsibility for spot-kicks enhances his claims and he looks the safest bet if playing that market. For Honduras, Jerry Bengtson looks to be their main attacking outlet and is therefore the most sensible option for goalscorer betting for anyone fancying Los Catrachos to get on the score-sheet.
