South Africa vs Burkina Faso


This match holds a lot of significance for both teams, especially for South Africa who got its game against Senegal cancelled by FIFA and a replay was ordered. They would be under intense pressure to win against the Burkinabeys as anything other than a victory would mean an end to their world cup campaign. They have just one point from four matches having surprisingly lost the double header to Cape Verde. They got a draw earlier against Burkina Faso away and they would stand a great chance if they can manage to get a victory in this match.

Burkina Faso is a formidable team in Africa. They are organised, strong and ccommitted. Former Chelsea starlet, Bertrand Traore leads their line, supported by the more experienced Bance and Prejuce Nakouma with Krassnodar of Russia’s Kabore operating from the midfield


South Africa finds it hard qualifying for tournaments. They always find a way to implode. Maybe it is because of their style of play or their players are not just good enough. I think Burkina Faso would cause them all sorts of problems. The South African would attack from the beginning and tire out later. This is where the more experienced Burkina faso players and team would sting them. I believe South Africa will score. Burkina Faso will also score as the South Africans are not that organised at the back. I believe also that Burkina faso will not lose this match as they appear hungrier for the win, they have the better players and the better bench. Burkina Faso win or draw & Both teams to score just like it was in the first leg.

PREDICTION; Burkina Faso win or draw & BTTS @2.10
