Niger vs Uganda: top free betting tips
Niger are set to host Uganda in the sixth group stage game of African Cup of Nations Qualifiers on Thursday, 7 September. Both Menas have been eliminated from the race of African Cup of Nations while Uganda have the last chance to book their place in the competition.
Total goals prediction: Under2.5 Goals
Two of the recent four H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with Under 2.5 Goals. Niger have found the back of the net only once in the last five matches. On the other hand, Uganda’s offence has also been in trouble as they rattled the net only three times in the same number of games. Additionally, Menas also remained goalless in the last two fixtures at Stade de Marrakech. Therefore, a total of Under 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this fixture.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Niger’s front line has been dismal recently as they failed to find the back of the net in four of the recent five games. But Uganda have managed to rattle the net in three games during the same period, despite winning only one match. The Cranes have also been on the defensive end by claiming four clean sheets in the last five road fixtures. Additionally, Uganda also restricted Niger from scoring in the previous H2H at Stade de Marrakech. Given this, we predict only Uganda will be strong enough to get to the scoresheet in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Uganda
Uganda have been limited to scoring only one goal in three of their recent five H2Hs against Niger. Menas have also conceded just one goal per game in three of the previous five matches, despite losing all of them. Moreover, Uganda have also netted the ball just once in the aforestated period. Following the current state of affairs, we believe to see a narrow lead of 0-1 in favour of Uganda in this encounter.
Niger vs Uganda: form, recent games, and news
Niger travelled to Tanzania in the last game in AFC Qualifiers and tasted a 0-1 defeat, conceding a goal to Simon Msuva in the 69th minute. Menas are the only side with zero wins in Group F in five rounds, featuring two draws and three defeats. Centre forward Daniel Sosah will miss out on the upcoming fixture due to injury.
Fahad Bayo’s late goal in the 88th minute against Algeria couldn’t avoid Uganda conceding defeat in the previous ACN Qualifiers game. El Amine Amoura was the man of the hour for Algeria by scoring a brace to help his team to a 1-2 victory. Uganda have an ideal team preparation as they enter their last game of the group stage.
