Eswatini vs Burkina Faso
Africa Cup of Nations – Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 7 June 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: FNB Stadium.
Burkina Faso have been one of the top-performing teams in the CONCACAF region for the past few years. In fact, they had made it to the semi-finals of the recently-concluded Cup of Nations and for sure they will be targeting an equally good or better campaign this time around.
As expected, they have begun their qualification campaign with a win and have shot right to the top of the table. They will be determined to keep this momentum going on and emulate their previous qualification result, when they had topped their group.
They had completed the qualifiers without a single defeat and had scored the most number of goals as well as had conceded the least. And in the semi-final of the mains, they were eliminated by eventual champions Senegal.
Meanwhile Eswatini could not even secure a ticket to the recently concluded Cup of Nations competition as they had finished dead last in their qualifiers group.
They failed to register a single win all through the campaign and had let in more goals than the next two worst defensive stats combined.
On top of that they also have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years. Taking into account all these observations, expect Burkina Faso to secure a win this Tuesday.
