The Panama vs Honduras match will be held at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 (10:00 PM EDT). Panama lacks the great team play it displayed in the previous round of the CONCACAF qualifiers, and has 2 points after two matches in the Hexagonal. Honduras has been playing well, and has 4 points after having faced the toughest opponents in CONCACAF: USA and Mexico.
Panama dropped two points against Costa Rica at home, it had a 2-1 victory in the pocket, only to see it dissipate thanks to an 85th minute goal by Costa Rica. However, the Canaleros followed that up with a good away 1-1 draw at Jamaica, remaining undefeated with 2 points. Not a bad start for a team hoping to at best land in the 3rd/4th place spots.
Panama cannot afford to lose any more points at home, the 2-2 score against Costa Rica means that Panama has to make up 2 points in away matches, an always difficult task in the CONCACAF region. Panama will face a red-hot Honduran team that is set on finishing in the top 3 CONCACAF spots and a direct ticket to Brazil.
Honduras faced the top two teams in the CONCACAF region, and came out undefeated, with 4 points, and momentarily in first place of the Hexagonal. Given, both matches were in San Pedro Sula, it is still a fantastic result. Honduras was down in both matches, and both times recovered to come up with great results (2-1 victory over USA, and 2-2 draw against Mexico).
Last time Honduras traveled to the Estadio Rommel Fernandez (back in October), they ended up with a 0-0 draw in a very tight match. Before that, Panama had traveled to Honduras and defeated them 2-0 in San Pedro Sula, a task that neither Mexico nor USA were able to achieve. These two Central American teams are bound to display an incredible match in Panama.
