The soccer match between the two Latino soccer-crazy nations is a must-watch since the two rivals are expected to go hard with each other.

Die-hard soccer fans can now book their hotel accommodations to the match through the official MexTour hotel link, https://hotels.mextour.org/.
Since their rivalry started many years back, Mexico and Honduras already fought 37 times on the global soccer stage with the former winning 23 games, losing six games, and drawn eight games.
While Mexico got the number in their head-to-head matches, Honduras was able to beat Mexico in their last meeting on October 10, 2017, at a FIFA World Cup qualifying match 3-2 in San Pedro Sula.
Honduras is also considered a global soccer powerhouse since they qualified for three previous FIFA World Cups.
The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the perfect stadium for this exciting soccer rivalry since it is one of the top venues in the world and the home of Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United and the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.
In 2019, the widely popular stadium in Atlanta also hosted the Mexican National Team who beat Venezuela 3-1 in front of nearly 52,000 fans.
This incoming match is also memorable for Mexico Manager Tata Martino who is set to return to the venue where he won MLS Cup with Atlanta United in 2018.
Since visiting Atlanta in 2009, Mexico was able to play Atlanta on several occasions in friendly matches.
Before facing Honduras, Mexico is also set to face the dangerous Iceland soccer team at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas on May 29.
Soccer die-hard who wish to watch this equally exciting match can buy their tickets at www.MexTour.org. True to its name, MexTour is set to bring more excitement to soccer fans in the US as the soccer promotion company plans to add at least three additional games, with opponents, dates, and locations to be announced.
