The hosts to win
Namibia should win this fixture. We base our argument on the recent form of both teams. The hosts have 4W, 1D and 1L in the last six games while the Congo Republic has 2W, 2D and 2L in the last six games. There is no record of previous encounters hence home advantage should boost the confidence of Namibians in their first WCQ fixture.
Our second pick is a few goals at full-time. These teams have shown remarkable defending in recent games. Moreover, the fact that this is the first meeting and in a World Cup qualifier means a tense game is expected. The visitors have 4 clean sheets in the last six matches while Namibia recorded 2 clean sheets in as many games. With a stronger defence, Congo Republic will be a tough opponent to break down.
Half-time result: Draw
We are tipping draw at the break for this fixture. Strong defences on both sides and the quest for World Cup places makes this game even tougher. A deadlocked first-half should end with both teams sharing the spoils.
Match Preview: Namibia Hosts Congo Republic in CAF World Cup Qualifiers
Our match preview provides you with more details about the individual teams in this fixture. Take a look.
Namibia has 4W, 1D and 1L in the last six games, a form that puts them ahead in this fixture. The home advantage always plays significance in fixtures like this and so Namibia should make the most of it before travelling to Congo in November this year. Moreover, the fact that this is a World Cup qualifier means both sides will put in a shift on matchday to grab all points or bag at least a point in the first game. Namibia is ranked 109 on FIFA least, 14 places below the Congo Republic. However, comparing forms of both sides shows that the hosts are the better side.
Congo Republic’s biggest advantage in this fixture is a strong defence. The visitors have kept seven clean sheets in the last ten matches, three more than the hosts. Congo has 2W, 1D and 2L in the last five matches, a form that puts them under pressure to perform in the first WCQ match away from home. The visitors are ranked 93rd by FIFA having climbed one place in the last year.
