Uganda vs Niger Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (8/06/2022)

Uganda and Niger failed in their opening fixtures for the Africa Cup of Nations and will be motivated for a win in this upcoming match.

Uganda vs Niger: Top Free Betting Tips

Niger failed to win against Tanzania, which was a shocker, and now will have to face an even stronger opponent in Uganda.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

Most of Uganda's recent matches ended with more than 2.5 goals but those were international friendlies against stronger national teams. Niger are nowhere near that level and we do not expect much action from this game. We expect a goal from both sides and a possible draw as these two national teams are not in their best shape.

Match Result – Draw

Uganda and Niger are not exactly on the same level if we consider the FIFA world rankings. Uganda are ranked 84th in the world right now while Niger are all the way down at 114th place. Still, Niger have been having much better results than Uganda lately and we think that they will not give in easily in this match. Uganda have not won too many games over the past couple of years but they are on an actual home streak of six games without a loss. Four of those were draws, however, and we expect that result in this match.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

If this match ends in a draw, it should either be a 0:0 or a 1:1. Neither of these national teams is a high-scoring one and they rarely score more than one goal per game. We still think that it should be a 1:1 because both teams need to win this game and will give their best. It might be worth a shot to try for that 1:1 correct score or even the 0:0 additionally with smaller stakes. Uganda had 4 draws in their last 6 home games – 2 ended in 0:0 and two were 1:1s.

Uganda vs Niger: The latest stats and odds

Uganda vs Niger: Form, Recent Games, and News

Uganda Preview

Uganda's squad is weaker than the majority of the better teams in Africa when it comes to individualities. None of their players perform at any of the top leagues in Europe although some have experience in smaller leagues like in Scotland, for example. The expectations for this side are not huge but this is one of the easiest groups in the AFC and we think that Uganda will contest for that second seed.

Niger Preview

Niger's squad is not much different and the national team does not include any players that perform at the top level of football in Europe. Most players are in various African Leagues or leagues in the middle east. Along with Tanzania, Niger are the other underdogs in this group and it would be surprising to see them qualify at the end of these qualifications.
