In the second game of the CONCACAF Group D fixture, Panama are all set to lock their horns with Honduras at BBVA Compass Stadium. Both teams did well in their opening games of the campaign and will look to carry the momentum for the second game as well. 

Panama played out a great game in their opening game of the campaign after the tie ended in a six-goal thriller. Panama went behind on every occasion but were strong enough to stage a great fight back. They equalized in a short span of time after conceding the goal. Rolando Blackburn scored a brace to save the grace of Panama in their previous game.
