This game is likely to see a lot of experimentation from South Africa and Uganda. Both teams have just one friendly match before heading into the World Cup qualifiers. After failing to reach the Africa Cup of Nations, there is extra pressure on the World Cup qualifiers. Even though South Africa have a 100% record against Uganda, the visitors could grab a draw by profiting from the poor form of the hosts.
Total goals under 2.5
Uganda have been unable to score in three out of the last five matches. They are especially mediocre when travelling and this should help South Africa to a certain extent. Hugo Broos might be taking a cautious approach, as he may not want his team to suffer a big defeat in his first game.
Both teams to score – yes
The South African players might be invigorated to perform well in front of the new coach. This might result in some special performances – at least in the first half. If Uganda are able to survive this first wave, they might come up with a goal or two by taking advantage of a leaky defence.
South Africa vs Uganda: Preview of the Friendly
South Africa appointed Hugo Broos as the national team coach after a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign. The 69-year-old has previously been in charge of Cameroon and he is reasonably aware about the challenges of managing an African team. The manager is likely to make a couple of changes ahead of his first game. This friendly is extremely important in this scenario, as it gives Hugo Broos an opportunity to look at new players.
Uganda have been winless in any match since beating South Sudan by a narrow margin back in November 2020. The team are low on confidence, but they came very close to reaching the Africa Cup of Nations. The upcoming friendly gives a great opportunity for Uganda to pick up some momentum ahead of their first World Cup qualifier against Kenya.
