South Sudan vs Mali
African Cup of Nations Qualification
Date: Thursday , 9 June 2022
Kick-off at 13:00 UK / 14:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium-Kitende.

South Sudan is set to host to the visiting Mali in a match of Round 2 in Group G at Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. They both will battle it out this Thursday at St. Mary’s Stadium-Kitende.

A narrow 0-1 defeat to Gambia was a frustrating way for South Sudan to open their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. They are now third in the group with zero points along with Congo who are below. The hosts have now lost 6 out of their last 8 games played across various competitions.

South Sudan have won just 3 of their last 13 matches and two of those came in the preliminary round against a weak Djibouti team. They really need to amp up their performance if they hope to move forward in this group and already losing one on the back.

On the other side, Mali got their campaign off to a staggering last time out when they comfortably blew off Congo by a 4-0 win at home turf. They now top the group with 3 points and highest goal ratio while Gambia comes in second. The visitors have now snapped a three-match winless streak quite impressively.

Mali just missed out on the 2022 Qatar World Cup by being beaten at the hands of Tunisia by 0-1 on aggregate in March. All of their last 5 games have seen a nil figure on the scoreboard and this has been an interesting characteristic of their recent schedules.

South Sudan vs Mali Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Mali won all of their last 5 meetings maintaining a cleansheet on each.
  • The visitors bagged a total of 11 goals from their past 5 h2hs.
  • South Sudan never won against them and couldn’t even score on any.

South Sudan vs Mali Prediction

Mali remain unbeaten in 8 of their last 12 games away from home excluding major tournaments. They now come here on the back of a 6-game away unbeaten record across various competitions.

Meanwhile, South Sudan have now lost 16 of their last 17 Africa Cup of Nations qualification games since March 2016 and that indicates their poor track record in this campaign. They have also not won against this rival in any of their previous h2h meetings.

We envisage the visitors will back themselves to come out on top and continue their already established dominance in this Thursday’s fixture.
