Ecuador lead for longer period of time against Switzererland with the early goal from Enner Valencia but a goal at the start of 2nd half from Admir Mehmedi made it 1-1, after that Ecuador players got a bit tired and defence streched and in 84th minute swiss side took the lead which they managed to keep untill the final whistle, leaving Ecuador with their defeat in world cup 2014 and now they must win both of their remaing group games.

Honduras on the other hand struggle through out the game aginst France, two yellow cards for Wilson Palacios got him sent off and the flood gate open with Benzema and co running riot. Here is the team news for the upcoming match.

Expected Starting Lineup For Both Teams:

Honduras will be without their experienced campaigner Palacios and he will be replaced by Osman Chavez in the starting lineup. Ecuador on the other had are likely to go with the same lineup.

Match Predictions:

Honduras looked a very average side against France, even before the red card to Palacios, the alar bells were ringing in the opening half hour with France creating chances at will. While Ecuador troubled Switzerland and should have got away with a point atleast, I expect them to get win over Honduras. What you think of this match up ?
