Madagascar vs Burundi Match Preview
Madagascar have shown off as a tough side to outgun as they held Guinea to a thriller 2-2 draw, where Andrianantenaina and Andriamatsinoro both found the net but failed to keep hold of a one-goal lead in the second half. They now meet Burundi at Alexandria Stadium and hope to build on the performance.
Barea haven’t really been able to turn clashes their way and saw just two draws and four losses in six outings since November, which will feel more worrying. However, we feel they’ll be very motivated to impress and the streak behind them means very little, especially after such an entertaining contest in their first outing.
Burundi, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Nigeria on the day, as a single goal from Odion Ighalo made all the difference, but few will be able to object to their display. They’ve closed down early and only in-form Alex Iwobi was able to really give defenders headaches through most part of the match.
Swallows have thus seen their second narrow loss in a row with a seven-match unbeaten streak ended, which has come at the worst time possible. They’ll now want more against Madagascar but Olivier Niyungeko will be well aware the rivals pose a serious threat at this point.
We will still back Madagascar to hold off the rivals and stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils, where a Draw comes at 2/1 with 22bet and already caught the eye of many regardless of hopes for another exciting occasion on the day.
We do feel we’re in for goals and with that in mind, we’re also going for a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with Hamabet. We’ve seen both sides moving forward with confidence and we now hope for more of the same, regardless of the high stakes involved.
