South Africa have been in great form coming into these qualifiers. They won their regional COSAFA tournament in impressive fashion at the end of July, defeating Senegal in the final via post-match penalties after the two teams failed to break the deadlock in regulation time.
Ever since they embarrassingly lost 2-0 to minnows Sudan, on their way to missing out of next year’s AFCON, Bafana Bafana have been on an absolute tear, going unbeaten in the subsequent 7 matches (6W, 1D) while keeping clean sheets in all these matches!
Belgian coach Hugo Broos was hired back in May and his first mission is to secure qualification to Qatar 2022 from this Group G that also features Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.
Unlike the hosts, Ghana have struggled to impress in their recent outings with just one win in their last 5 competitive fixtures. However, when it comes to the World Cup qualifiers, they have shown their pedigree in recent years, having participated in three successive World Cups between 2006 and 2012.
Coach Charles Akonnor will still be missing some of his key players for this encounter but he still has enough quality to choose from and will certainly be keen to try and come away with something from this game.
The Black Stars can draw some inspiration from their last visit here during the qualifiers where they came away with a 1-1 draw.
