Honduras and Switzerland both suffered downfalls from their first matches in the World Cup, but the former incurred more pain as they failed to win their second fixture while the latter successfully turned their deficit around.



Thus far, Honduras are the only CONCACAF team to succumb to their rivals with painful defeats from France and Ecuador. Their grip on the table’s top two is increasingly weakening, being the only side in the group to not earn even just a single point. They battled out a goalless upset with France on their curtain raiser 3-0 and followed it up with another tragedy from Ecuador 1-2. The side looked to earn their first win in the competition following a 31st-minute opener from Costly. However, Ecuador’s Valencia delivered a brace not long after which solidly put the Honduran players to shame.



The Alpine team have plummeted into the third spot following a miserable defeat from France at the Arena Fonte Nova on weekend. Switzerland trail Ecuador with a two-goal deficit, which means that they need to win their final Group-stage battle in order to regain their top half position. The side’s players are undoubtedly full of youth but they failed to live with the pace and power of their French rivals. Dzemaili and Xhaka provided two late rallies for the Swiss squad, but that was after France have already netted five goals via Giroud, Matuidi, Valbuena, Benzema, and Sissoko.


World Cup betting tip: Switzerland will steal all the spoils from Honduras.
