The wait is almost over for the WC Qualifiers - Africa action taking place on Monday as Mali play Central Africa.
All Mali v Central Africa game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Mali will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 3-1 WC Qualifiers - Africa success over Chad.
For Mali, goals were scored by Kamory Doumbia (45'), Youssouf Niakaté (77') and Ibrahima Sissoko (81'). Marius Mouandilmadji (53') scored for Chad.
Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that there has been much resilience in the Mali defence. Mali have given the opposition little, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past 6 outings standing at 2. With no two games being the same, time will tell if that pattern shall be replicated in this match.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Comoros in WC Qualifiers - Africa action, Central Africa will be aiming to make amends here.
Abdel-Hakim Abdallah (10' Own goal), Kassim M'Dahoma (29'), Benjaloud Youssouf (50'), Rafiki Saïd (58'), Myziane Maolida (68') and Younn Zahary (74' Own goal) scored for Comoros.
Proving their involvement in eventful matches, goals have been scored 20 times in the prior six games in which Central Africa have played, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals each meeting. Their opponents have managed 14 of these goals.
Our thinking is that Mali should convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Central Africa will be up against it to get shooting opportunities but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a 3-1 winning score for Mali at the end of the 90 minutes.
