Honduras vs. Costa Rica, 2013 Gold Cup quarterfinals: Preview and TV schedule

Scott Halleran

The most evenly matched quarterfinal in Gold Cup is the last one. Honduras and Costa Rica meet in Baltimore for the right to face the USA-El Salvador winner.

A strong start to the Gold Cup has given way to a couple of lackluster performances for Costa Rica, and they're slight underdogs against Honduras in what will likely be the best of the quarterfinal matches.

The Ticos downed Cuba 3-0 to start the tournament, but only managed a 1-0 win over Belize and lost to the United States while Jurgen Klinsmann was sitting some of his top players. Honduras, on the other hand, beat two much tougher opponents in Haiti and El Salvador to start the competition. They dropped their most recent game against Trinidad and Tobago, but only after they had already clinched first place in Group B.

Honduras have made one change to their squad from the group stage, bringing in Erick Norales for Johnny Palacios. Costa Rica have opted to make no changes to their team for the knockout stage.

Match date/time: Sunday, 7 p.m. ET

Venue: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, Md.

TV: FOX Soccer (U.S. - English), Univision (U.S. - Spanish), Sportsnet World (Canada), ESPN (U.K.)
