This is a real David v Goliath encounter as little Honduras take on the mighty Spain at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for their second matches in Group H. The betting odds for this match is hugely one-sided with the Hondurans facing a big battle to even take a point against the favourites for the the group and Euro 2008 winners Spain. The Spanish wer expected to cruise the group stages but having lost 1-0 to Switzerland in their first game they will be expecting to brush aside Honduras here and claim the three points.
Honduras were delighted to qualify for the World Cup and realistically stand next to no chance of getting anything from this match, they face a Spain team that is as good as any in the World as they have shown over the last couple of years. Chile beat Hinduras in the first match of the World Cup, but the Hondurans did nothing to suggest this will be an easy game for Spain..
Quite possibly the most one-sided betting match of the entire group stage at the 2010 World Cup, Spain are the big odds-on favourites to claim the three points and should do with ease. Any punters wanting to back Honduras here should think very carefully before backing at huge odds against for a football match. They may have designs on a draw if they catch Spain on an off day but even that looks unlikely,

Match Day Squads and Key Players
Spain are jam packed full of world class players who will be looking to add a world Cup to their Euro 2008 medals they won a couple of years back. The majority of their squad of course ply their trade in La Liga but there are the likes of Fernando Torres and Cesc Fabregas who are stars of the Premier League. The match day squad for the game against Honduras will feature all of the big names as long as they avoid injury and suspension in their opener against Switzerland.
Honduras will need all of their big names to be in the starting eleven to face Spain if they are to have even a squeak of upsetting the match odds. They will look to their Premier League stars like Wilson Palacios and Hendry Thomas to be fit and firing as they look to ruffle a few Spanish feathers.
