In need of a strong rebound, Mexico enters the second leg of the Nations League quartersfinals trailing Honduras 2-0 after a lackluster performance in the first leg. Mexico struggled to threaten Honduras, only managing two shots on target while star striker Santiago Gimenez failed to take a single shot. Head coach Jamie Lozano faces potential consequences if another poor showing occurs, making stability in the coaching ranks a priority for the national team. Defensively, El Tri usually performs well but now they face the daunting task of scoring three goals without conceding to overcome Honduras, and a two-goal win would lead to extra time.
The silver lining for Mexico is their previous 4-0 victory against Honduras during the Gold Cup, although that match took place on neutral ground, while the upcoming game will be in Mexico. The game is set to take place on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Viewers can catch the action on TUDN or via live stream on Fubo. Mexico is heavily favored with odds of -700, while the draw is at +575 and Honduras at +1800.
For Mexico, this match is crucial as a defeat could potentially affect their automatic qualification for the Copa America. The losers of these quarterfinals have a second shot at qualifying, but that’s not a route Mexico wants to take. Meanwhile, Honduras sees this match as an opportunity to turn the tide, with Copa America offering significant resources and a chance to attract dual national players.
In the end, a prediction of Mexico 2, Honduras 1 is made, with Mexico scoring but ultimately falling short due to a crucial goal from Honduras.
