Burundi go into this fixture following a 2-2 International Friendlies tied result versus Indonesia.
The only scorer from Burundi was Saido Berahino (80'). Jordi Amat (90') scored for Indonesia.
It’s not been often in recent times where Burundi have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Burundi have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals in the process. We will find out if that trend will be continued on into this next match.
In their previous game, Gambia drew 1-1 in the International Friendlies match with UAE.
The only player to score from Gambia was Musa Barrow (48'). Ali Mabkhout (38') was the scorer for UAE.
For 6 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Gambia, a comparatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opponents. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes out as a mere 1.5, with the number of goals averaged by Gambia being 0.83.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Gambia will more than likely get at least a few goals in this one against Burundi, who will probably not find it easy to be scoring at all.
Things might really get out of hand.
We’re therefore expecting to see a controlled 0-3 winning score with maybe even more goals for Gambia at the end of the match.
