Eswatini vs Togo Predictions and Tips

This will just be a formality for both Eswatini and Togo as both teams have lost the battle in the AFCON qualifiers. We have settled on the following are the best free Eswatini vs Togo predictions:

Match Result Prediction: Eswatini to Win

Eswatini is our favourite to win the game. It is the second time that Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) hists Togo. They won the previous encounter 2-1 back in June 2008. Eswatini managed to grab a point from Togo in the round 1 clash despite being the least dominant so with nothing to play for, the hosts have an advantage.

Total Match Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

This fixture yielded lots of goals in the past. Notably, all three previous duels ended with at least 3 goals. The first meeting in June 2008 ended 2-1, the second duel took place in October of the same year and it ended 6-0 in favour of Togo who hosted the match and most recently, a 2-2 thriller. Both teams are in bad shape defensively, so we expect at least 3 goals in the clash.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Eswatini

With Eswatini as our favourites despite being the bookies' outsiders, we think there will be goals on both sides and at least three goals will be scored in the encounter. We have settled for a correct score of 2-1 in favour of the Eswatini when they host Togo in round 5 of AFCON qualifiers on Sunday, 18th June 2018.

Eswatini vs Togo AFCON Qualifiers, Round 5 Fixture Preview

It has been a torrid run for both Eswatini and Togo in the AFCON qualifiers. Togo used to be a continental force in football but things seem to be going south for a country that is now ranked 129th by FIFA in world football. Eswatini on the other hand is ranked 144th in global football rankings.

Both teams have bagged two points from 4 rounds, making their quest for AFCON places fruitless having failed to win a game so far.

The reverse fixture, a round 1 clash, saw both teams settle for a point in a goal-fest that ended 2-2. In that game, Togo had 59% ball possession while Eswatini recorded 41% possession.

In terms of shots on goal, Togo had a whopping 10 shots on target, so it is quite bizarre that they did not win the game. But that's Togo for you, a team that has been in continuous decline while Eswatini managed to convert 2 of their 3 shots on target to grab a point away from home.

With home support in this round 5 fixture of the AFCON qualifiers, Eswatini should be favourites in this game but a win will have no impact on their qualifying chances apart from looking to finish strongly in the last home game.
