All four teams in Group E can still progress to the knockout stages but for Honduras, qualification is highly unlikely, hence betway’s odds of 80/1 for them to get through.
The Central Americans need to comfortably defeat Switzerland and hope that France ease past Ecuador but Luis Fernando Suarez’s troops have done little in the competition so far to suggest they’ll get the better of the Swiss.
Indeed, BetVictor quote Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side at just 9/20 to get the better of the rugged Hondurans, bet365’s 8/1 outsiders and it’s 7/2 courtesy of Winner.com to finish all square, a result that will only help Switzerland if the Ecuadorians lost to the French.
The Swiss have looked reasonably potent in attack so far and should have enough to prevail here but they were defensively fragile against France so Ladbrokes’s 9/4 for both teams to score in a success for the Europeans is one of the best bets in Manaus.
Switzerland to beat Honduras 3-1 – 13/1 (Ladbrokes)
