Australia vs. Honduras 2017 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch World Cup qualifier online
- Wed, 15 Nov 2017 14:37
This international World Cup qualifier looks like it will go to the wire.
This qualification cycle for the World Cup has seen drama unending, and there’s still yet more to unfold before the entire field for the tournament in Russia in 2018 is set. This latest act is set to take stage in Australia, where the Socceroos are set to host Honduras in the second leg of their inter-confederation playoff qualifier.
The first leg ended scoreless in Hondruas, with Australia playing a cagey setup designed to probe for potential over-extensions in Honduras’ tactics, but accept a draw is that’s what was on the cards. Honduras are not exactly an error-prone team, so few such opportunities arose, and neither team could find a goal as a result.
There’s little room for such conservatism in this second leg, though, and it’s officially winner-take-all, with the addendum that any goals Honduras may score will serve as a tiebreaker thanks to the away goals rule. Australia will have to score at least two goals to be certain of advancement and be ready to score more, because as we’ve seen elsewhere in qualifying playoffs, road teams are capable of scoring in buckets at times.
Only one thing is certain in this match: with two hungry teams on the pitch with two under-rated attacks, this game will be full of drama and will almost certainly go down to the absolute wire before we know who is headed to the World Cup.
