Uganda and Burkina Faso go head-to-head in a top-of-the-table Group B clash on Wednesday in the 5th round of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Burkina Faso leads the way in this group on eight points, just one more than Uganda’s seven.
Odibets free bet offers quite a range of betting markets for this game and we will take a look at a couple of them for our review.
After a calm and steady run that had seen them rise up the FIFA rankings, Uganda appears to have stumbled with back-to-back home losses to Togo and Morocco. Before this, they had lost just once in their previous 18 matches across all competitions.
Coach Mubiru Abdallah will look to his side to get back to winning ways here but it will be a tough task if their previous encounters against the West Africans are anything to go by.
Burkina Faso top this group and have one foot on the qualification spot as they only need three points to guarantee that. They have been on a good run of form with just one loss in their last eleven games.
Their last match was at home against Cameroon in January and they held the African powerhouse to a goalless draw. Away from home though, that one loss to Mali is the only loss they have had on their travels in the last seven games. This run includes three wins including one over Ghana and credible draws at DR Congo and Morocco. They are therefore very much in it with a shout here.
The reverse meeting between these two teams back in 2019 produced a goalless stalemate. This was a replica of the previous encounter between the two nations in 2016 with the only difference being the venue. Meetings between these two teams have been extremely tight and we do not expect this to be any different. 5 of the last 6 encounters produced draws at halftime and we feel there is great value in backing a repeat of the same here @ 1.88 for our first betting tip for today.
There is a lot more on the line for Burkina Faso going into this pivotal clash. A win for them will be enough to secure their qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations. They top the group after an unbeaten start to the campaign although their cushion over Uganda is just a solitary point. Uganda have struggled in their recent matches, failing to win any of their last four matches in all competitions. The Burkinabes are likely to be the aggressor here going by their style of play and we fancy them to be able to claim at least a point here, hence why we are picking them on the double chance for a safety measure @ 1.59 as our last tip here.
