South Africa vs Angola
International – Friendlies
Date: Wednesday, 19th June 2019
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Police Officers Club Stadium.
With South Africa preparing to take on one of the strongest sides in Africa, Ivory Coast, in the opening match of their African Cup of Nations campaign in Egypt, the international friendly against Angola on Wednesday will be their last chance to perfect their tactics and strategies before they make the trip to the big stage.
The Angola side who are also featuring in the African Cup of Nations will be equally hopeful of a win when they take on South Africa. As far as previous matches are concerned, the Angola side have a far better record to boast of, than their opponents. Of course, that alone is not going to cut it.
Despite managing just a draw and two wins, albeit the wins coming on penalties after extra time, the South African side have shown a lot of promise and could well come out on top when they take on Angola.

South Africa vs Angola Prediction
The Angola side have recently been on a good run of form, managing four wins in their last five matches. However, they have been far from impressive on the road, with three losses in their last five away matches.
In comparison, the South African side have fared a lot better with zero losses in their last five away matches. Their most recent away match against Ghana, where they were held to a 0-0 draw, was again a sign of promise that they could and should be doing better.
The Angola side, on the other hand, will be coming into the clash on the back of a 2-0 win against Guinea Bissau in their most recent friendly. With their opening match in the African Cup of Nations scheduled to be against Tunisia, the Angola side will have to display a much more solid performance, when they take on South Africa for their last warm-up match in the United Arab Emirates.
The South African side are most likely to take the win against Angola by not more than a slender margin. The former have also been successful in keeping a clean sheet in their last two matches, and are likely to record one against Angola as well.
