Guinea vs Madagascar Match Preview
Guinea topped the Qualifiers’ Group H ahead of Ivory Coast but they haven’t managed to keep up their team spirits through the pre-tournament friendlies, now meeting Madagascar for their Matchday 1 clash with two consecutive losses behind them and desperate to bounce early on.
Syli Nationale have been scoring goals on the regular but recent struggles to turn clashes their way will be more worrying, as they now look for their first win in six outings – after bagging three points in three Qualifiers outings beforehand. They’ll now hope Madagascar will now be the same sort of a challenge and it doesn’t feel like it.
Madagascar come into the competition after bagging ten points in Qualifiers Group A and we’ve seen them struggle to pick it up through most recent clashes against Kenya (1-0) and Mauritania (3-1), which will have Nicolas Dupuis and his men with a lot on their mind at this point.
Barea have struggled for goalscoring consistency on the road and this could mean even more worries, as they failed to find the net in three of their last six games away from home. Guinea will surely be able to capitalize on such circumstances and this makes backing the favourites feel like buying money for old rope.
We will do just that and go for Guinea to secure the important points early in their campaign, with a win priced at 6/10 with Ladbrokes already catching a lot of attention with big hitters already.
Naby Keita has played an important role through the team’s Qualifiers and we’ve seen him find the net in three of his last four appearances, despite hardly boasting similar records with Liverpool. We’ll thus back him to score anytime now too, which comes at an eye-catching 4/1 with bet365.
