Kenya vs Tanzania Match Preview
Kenya failed to cope with Algeria and suffered a 2-0 loss as Baghdad Bounedjah and Riyad Mahrez bagged a goal each to all but push it over the line in the first half already, now meeting Tanzania for their Matchday 2 clash in hope they can do more and snatch their first points in Group C.
Harambee Stars have struggled for consistency ahead of the competition but still managed a 1-0 win over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw against DR Congo earlier in June, as in-form Michael Olunga led the attacking line. They’ll now want more but could still be in for a tough challenge.
Tanzania have shown off as a tough side as they suffered a 1-0 loss to Egypt and held Zimbabwe to a 1-1 draw in two June friendlies but failed to impress as they suffered a 2-0 loss to Senegal, where goals from Keita Balde and Krepin Diatta proved enough for a comfortable win for the Lions of Teranga.
Taifa Stars will now hope for an upset here, which would keep them in contention for a top 2 cut despite few keeping faith they’ll make it to the knockout stages, which does promise them organized at the back as well as a deadlock rather tough to break at 30 June Air Defence Stadium.
We thus feel both sides will be very motivated to secure the points and this has us going for a narrow contest with few all-out chances, as we back a Draw at 2/1 with MyBet although it could see both sides’ chances of making it to the knockout stages fading.
We thus expect few goals on the day and this has us going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with Netbet, which has caught the eye of many as more of a banker bet with high stakes involved and both sides inability to retain consistency in the final third over the past month.
