Honduras and Canada face off in the final game of the group stage of the 2021 Concacaf Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship. Two of the strongest teams in the competition head to this clash looking for a win to seal a place in the semifinals, as they couldn't secure it yet. Mexico and the United States have already qualified for the semis from the Group A. Here, take a look at the match preview, information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch this exciting game in the US.
Both have the same amount of points after winning in the opening match and tying in the second one, and a draw would be enough for them to progress in the competition. However, their future could be already defined in the clash between El Salvador and Haiti that will take place before.
If that game finishes with no winner, then Honduras and Canada would be playing just to decide the first and second of the group, but their presence in the semi-finals would be secure. Nonetheless, no matter what happens in the previous match, both will be facing to prove how far they can go in the quest for the Olympic Games.

Honduras vs Canada: Storylines
Honduras and Canada seem to be only a step away from securing the semi-finals. Both head to this clash with three points of advantage over El Salvador and Haiti, who will play before them. That game may finish with the speculation or it can add more pressure to the definition of Group B.
Honduras kicked off their campaign with a convincing win over Haiti, but they couldn't repeat such performance against El Salvador. Another triumph would have sent 'La H' to the next stage, but they were forced to wait until this last round to see what happens.
However, Canada regrets failing to seal a semi-final spot before even more. They could have accomplished it if they defeated Haiti, but surprisingly the game ended goallessly. The Canucks are expected to get into the semi-finals at least, while they are contenders for one of the two Tokyo 2021 berths at stake too.
