South Africa also almost lost chances to finish first and qualify for the main stage of Africa Cup of Nations. The team have only three points after four matches with 3-5 aggregate goal difference and is currently five points behind leaders Cameroon. Despite failing in the qualification, the visiting side is undefeated in five matches in a row, winning three and drawing two. Moreover, South Africa lost only two of their last 15 matches on the road, drawing six and winning seven. On top of that, South Africa are on five-match unbeaten streak in away games.
The opponents have faced one another only once in reverse fixture of the qualification that ended 0-0. The winner of the match won’t be involved in battle for the first place but a victory would be important for gaining back confidence. South Africa can definitely do better and they should be the side to prove it.
Prediction for the match: South Africa to win.
