Rwanda will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 1-0 International Friendlies defeat in their last game at the hands of Ethiopia.
It has been seldom in recent times where Rwanda have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Rwanda have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 10 goals along the way.
Zimbabwe come into this clash after a 2-1 Africa Cup of Nations win with the downing of Guinea in their last fixture.
In that match, Zimbabwe had 37% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. For Zimbabwe, goals were scored by Knowledge Musona (26') and Kudakwashe Mahachi (43'). On the other side, Guinea had 16 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Naby Keïta (49') was the scorer for Guinea.

In those fixtures, The Warriors have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 7. While that may be of interest, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might persist in this match.
