Los Chapines enjoyed a strong CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign last month. They finished atop their group with seven points to reach the knockouts for the first time since 2011. However, their run was ended by Jamaica in the last 16 with a 1-0 defeat.
Guatemala are gearing up for the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League and will hope to replicate their Gold Cup performances.
Honduras, meanwhile, struggled in the Gold Cup last month, receiving a 4-0 hiding against eventual champions Mexico before drawing 1-1 with tournament guests Qatar. They picked up their first and only win of the competition in their final group game, beating Haiti 2-1 at the Bank of America Stadium.
Los Catrachos have been knocked out of the group stage in two of their last three Gold Cup appearances and will hope for better luck in the Nations League this month.
