It’s almost time for WC Qualifiers - Africa action on Friday when Mali will take on Chad.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Mali v Chad match are shown here including the latest game odds.
Mali will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-3 International Friendlies success over Saudi Arabia.
For Mali, the goals were scored by Moussa Doumbia (14'), Hamari Traoré (42') and Lassine Sinayoko (71'). Salem Al Dawsari (58') scored for Saudi Arabia.
Their most recent results shine a light on the fact that much respect should be given to the Mali backline. Mali have been mean at the back, seeing the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their past six outings standing at 2. We will just have to see if that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
In their previous fixture, Chad drew 0-0 in the WC Qualifiers - Africa tie with Sudan.
The attacking players from Chad have had real problems scoring goals in their past 6 games, contributing the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, Les Sao have also seen the overall goal aggregate of their opponents equal 9.
Our assessment is that Mali will most probably have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
In contrast, Chad will be up against it to score although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage here, too.
Our tip is for a decent 3-1 winning score for Mali by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
