Uganda – Burkina Faso: Forecast and bet on the match of the African Cup of Nations
In the 5th round of Group B, Uganda and Burkina Faso will meet. Who will ensure their exit from the group?
After three starting rounds, Uganda went unbeaten, with 7 points out of 9 possible. First, the team shared points with Burkina Faso (0-0), and then alternately beat Malawi (2-0) and South Sudan (1-0). In the last round, the first loss happened – South Sudan turned out to be stronger with a score of 0: 1. Currently Uganda is in second place with seven points.
Having played 0-0 against Uganda in the first round, Burkina Faso repeated the opposition’s results in this match, scoring six points out of six: a 2-1 victory over South Sudan and a 3-1 victory over Malawi. And thanks to a draw in the previous round with Malawi (0-0), he took the clear first place with 8 points. In case of victory, Burkina Faso will not only guarantee itself a place in the playoffs, but will also win the group ahead of schedule.
Statistics and figures:
Uganda lost in the group stage in one match out of four;
Burkina Faso has never lost, having played four matches;
In the first round, Uganda and Burkina Faso shared the points – 0: 0.
Surely, in the upcoming match, the teams will again act carefully, trying, first of all, not to lose. I believe that the outcome of a draw may well repeat itself, so I suggest taking a risk and betting on a draw.
