Cape Verde and Burkina Faso are set to face off in a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday. Burkina Faso has already secured their spot in the continental event and will be looking to confirm their place as group winners. Meanwhile, Cape Verde is aiming to confirm their qualification for the tournament and move to the top of Group B.
Burkina Faso was denied a fifth consecutive victory in their last match against Togo, settling for a 1-1 draw. Despite this, they have already secured their place in the AFCON group phase. Cape Verde, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw against Morocco in a friendly match. They are just three points behind Burkina Faso and will be looking to secure a positive result in front of their home fans.
Cape Verde has lost their last four meetings against Burkina Faso without scoring a goal. However, they are unbeaten in their last five home matches and will be confident of securing a positive result. Burkina Faso’s Lassina Traore will be unavailable due to a knee injury, but Dango Ouattara will be looking to replicate his man-of-the-match performance in their last encounter.
Overall, while Cape Verde will give Burkina Faso a tough challenge, we are backing the away side to come out on top. This match is crucial for both teams as they aim to secure their place in the Africa Cup of Nations.
