Mexico vs. Honduras, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Sitting in third place in the CONCACAF Hexagonal is simply not good enough for Mexico and full points at home against Honduras will be expected of El Tri.

Honduras travels to Azteca Stadium hoping to leap over Mexico in the CONCACAF hexagonal standings. Despite Mexico's recent struggles, this will still be a sizable test for Luis Fernando Suárez's team.

El Tri are well aware of the pressure themselves and head coach José Manuel de la Torre are under. Just a single point separates Mexico from fourth place in the group and fifth-placed Panama are only two points back. They'll be boosted by a recent friendly victory over the Ivory Coast, where Giovanni dos Santos and Oribe Peralta led El Tri to a 4-1 victory. In addition, Honduras has never won at Azteca and hasn't beaten Mexico since 2009.

With a match against the United States looming, anything less than three points for Mexico will likely put Chepo's job in serious jeopardy.

Match Date/Time: 9:30 p.m. local, 9:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico

TV: ESPNEWS, UniMás, Univision Deportes (U.S.)
