Mali vs Central African Republic -Top free match predictions
Mali vs Central African Republic will not be an easy CAF World Cup qualifier clash. However, Mali stand a better chance here, especially after winning the opening round 3-1 at home when they hosted Mali on 17th November 2023. Central African Republic on the other hand lost 4-2 from home in the opening round against a weaker side in Comoros. Can the visitors bounce back? Here are the free Mali vs Central African Republic predictions:
Half-time result prediction – Mali to win first-half
Mali are the overwhelming favourite to win this World Cup qualifier against CAR. The hosts are 47th in World Football, several places above the 127th-ranked Central African Republic. So, apart from the home support that Mali are expecting in this second consecutive home game in the CAF World Cup qualifiers, they won all their last five games while the visitors lost their last three games and won two of their last five matches.
Total match goals – Over 2.5 goals
In another Mali vs Central African Republic CAF World Cup qualifier betting prediction, we expect at least three goals to be scored in this meeting. Mali is a high-scoring opposition and with home support, they have a chance of scoring even more goals in this round 2 of the World Cup qualifiers. Three of the last five Mali matches had at least three goals, noting that they won all games in that run. On the other hand, there were at least three goals in 4 of the last five Central African Republic matches.
Correct score prediction – 3-1 to Mali
In the final Mali vs Central African Republic prediction, we have a correct score tip of 3-1 in favour of Mali. Notably, the visitors conceded at least two goals in three of their last five outings and scored in each of those games. On the other hand, Mali rattled the net at least twice in four of their last five games. We think a 3-1 scoreline in favour of Mali is a highly probable outcome in this game.
