Tuesday’s WC Qualifiers - Africa schedule features Niger up against Zambia.
Our tips, poll and stats for Niger v Zambia can all be found here - along with the latest match odds.
Niger will be wanting a better result here after the 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Africa loss in their previous game against Tanzania.
Charles M'Mombwa (56') was the scorer for Tanzania.
François Zahoui's Niger have scored a sum total of 5 times over their last 6 outings. Conversely, the number of goals that they have conceded in that time amounts to 8.
Zambia will come into the match following a 4-2 WC Qualifiers - Africa win with the downing of Congo in their last match.
For Zambia, the goalscorers were Patson Daka (5', 92'), Lameck Banda (43') and Fashion Sakala (69'). Silvère Ganvoula (13') and Mons Bassouamina (15') scored for Congo.
The stats don’t lie, and Zambia have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in all. Defensively, Zambia just haven’t been too solid at all. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.
We’ve got the feeling that Niger must be fancied to find the back of the net against this Zambia outfit, but one goal is unlikely to prevent defeat.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for Zambia at the end of the match. Should be an interesting one.
