Burundi vs Gabon predictions and top betting tips
Gabon journeys to Burundi for another match from the CAF World Cup Qualifiers. Both nations started their qualification groups with a victory.
Match result prediction: Gabon to Win
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Gabon will win this encounter making it two wins from their first two qualifying matches for the nation from central Africa. Burundi earned a very good victory against Gambia last time out who have players such as Musa Barrow and Omar Colley but we predict that Gabon will be too strong for their opponents in this match. It will be a close affair with not much in it but Gabon does have enough quality all over the pitch to earn the three points.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this encounter will be 2.5 goals or more. Burundi has failed to keep a clean sheet since 2020 when the nation overcame Tanzania to win 1-0 but on the other hand, they are good at scoring having scored six times in their previous three matches. Gabon have plenty of firepower in attack to ensure they are dangerous in the future, which they did in their previous match against Kenya which saw Gabon win by two goals to one.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Gabon
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Gabon will earn a 2-1 victory over Burundi. Gabon has conceded in all of their previous five matches and has managed to score in four of their previous six matches while Burundi does have a shakey defence but has shown in recent matches that they are more than capable of scoring. Both nations have found the back of the net in the two previous fixtures between Burundi and Gabon with both encounters finishing in a 1-1 draw.
Burundi vs Gabon preview
Burundi has played just five times so far this year which started in March with a 3-1 friendly defeat to Indonesia before a rematch three days later ended 2-2.

Gabon earned a 2-1 victory in their previous match which was just their second win in 2023. Their first win of 2023 came in March when Gabon beat Sudan 1-0 before three defeats in a row to Sudan, DRC, and Mauritania.
