Honduras will host Jamaica at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat away to Mexico on Sunday. Rogelio Funes and Hirving Lozano scored late second-half goals to complete the victory for El Tri.

Jamaica could not be separated in a goalless draw with Canada on home turf.

The results meant that both sides still occupy the bottom two spots in the table. Jamaica are currently last, with just two points accrued so far. Honduras are one point and one spot higher up.

Their most recent meeting came in the group stage of the 2019 Gold Cup when Dever Orgill scored a first-half brace to help Jamaica secure a 3-2 victory.

Both sides are currently on a poor run of form and have each gone seven matches without a win.

Honduras vs Jamaica Prediction

There is little to choose from between the two sides and their World Cup qualification chances get slimmer with each passing game.

Their struggles for wins in recent months means confidence will be low in both camps and this could translate into a dour game of few chances. Although one side could secure a narrow win, we expect this to end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Honduras 1-1 Jamaica
