Honduras and Morocco have never played each other before. Here, Sports Mole previews their first ever meeting at the Olympic Games.

These two nations will meet for the first time in an international football fixture at Hampden Park tomorrow afternoon.

Morocco are considered to have the stronger of the two squads, with coach Pim Verbeek able to call up numerous European-based players into his starting lineup.

Sporting Lisbon youngster Zakaria Labyad is expected to start in an attacking midfield role, while Montpellier's Abdelhamid El Kaoutari will play at the heart of the defence.

Premier League fans will recognise Wigan Athletic's left-back Maynor Figueroa in the Honduras starting lineup.

Eddie Hernandez, who scored six goals during qualifying, is considered to be Honduras's main threat at the Games.

Possible starting lineups:

Honduras: Mendoza; Crisanto, Leveron, Colon, Figueroa; Najar, Peralta, Lopez, Lozano; Bengtson, Hernandez

Morocco: Amsif; Noussir, Bergdich, El Kaoutari, Jebbour; Kharja, El Kaddouri, Fetthoui; Labyad, El Hassanauoi, Amrabat
