Earlier in the tournament, there was some cause to hope this game might test presumptive Group C winner, Honduras. Antigua and Barbuda opened their Group Stage campaign with a 6-1 win over Sint Maarten. But the Benna Boys seem to have been fading ever since: squeaking past Belize, 1-0, and then losing 3-0 to both Dominican Republic and Cuba. For its part, Honduras has won all four of its group-stage games to date, scoring 26 goals and conceding two. This looks a lot like a mismatch.
If Los Catrachos get complacent, however, there is the possibility they hand the Group C title - and the right to advance to the next round - to Cuba. But it is a very remote possibility, requiring not just a Honduras loss, but also a combination of results sufficient to erase Los Catrachos’ significant goal difference advantage.
