Cape Verde vs Burkina Faso Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Cape Verde vs Burkina Faso will be an interesting game as these are the two teams at the top of the group. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

We have two fairly similar national teams in terms of style and strength and we expect a close and competitive match. These sides typically do not have high-scoring matches and they also rarely lose too. Both national teams have not lost a match in five consecutive games since last year and this one will be very close. We do not expect more than two goals scored here.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

This is a difficult game to predict. Both national teams are close in the world rankings which puts them on the same level. Their form is also identical right now and both sides do not lose matches. We expect a close game with a low number of goals, possibly 1-1. Burkina Faso have already qualified to the next round, so the team does not have to give it all here on the road.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

This is the most likely scoreline we expect. It is true that Cape Verde are a very low-scoring side but Burkina Faso will probably find the net at least once here. When we compare the Cape Verde vs Burkina Faso line ups, we think that the teams are more or less equal in strength right now and neither has the advantage.

Cape Verde vs Burkina Faso Team Previews

Cape Verde Preview

Cape Verde are in the midst of their best period in years. The team has not lost a match in five consecutive games and they even faced some strong teams in those matches. Their defense has improved and they barely concede any goals. Of course, their main problem is the scoring part and we often see them get 0-0 draws because of that.

Burkina Faso Preview

Burkina Faso are generally significantly stronger than Cape Verde and their current form is even better. With four wins in the last five matches and only a single defeat in the last ten, they are a serious contender for the next stage in the competition. They have to make some adjustments in defense but besides that, we love what Burkina Faso have been showing on the pitch.
