The hosts to win both halves
Burkina Faso bagged a 4-0 victory against the visitors away from home in the reverse leg. They can only do better at home in this fixture. Djibouti is one of the worst teams defensively in the 2022 CAF World Qualifiers. The visitors have leaked 16 goals in three matches and scored only two. We don't think they have a chance in this match, talk less of getting their first draw or victory in the competition.
We are also tipping lots of goals in this fixture. Djibouti has suffered massive defeats in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. They kicked off with a humiliating 8-0 loss to Algeria before losing 4-2 at home against Nigeria. They come to this game with a 4-0 loss to Burkina Faso. While Burkina Faso has scored four goals in the World Cup qualifiers Group A, we think they have a second chance to exact more damage on the struggling visitors.
Burkina Faso to win with a clean-sheet
Our third and last pick for this game is a clean-sheet victory to Burkina Faso. Djibouti’s record so far is far less impressive, especially in the final third and scoring in this game will be a nightmare for the visitors.

Match Preview: Burkina Faso Aiming to Topple Algeria from the Top
Burkina Faso aims to displace Algeria from the top of Group A in CAF World Cup qualifiers. Both teams have seven points after three matches. This fixture presents Burkina Faso with another chance to bag three points against Djibouti. The visitors lost 4-0 to Burkina Faso at home and could face yet another humiliation on the road. Djibouti lost all their last four games during which they conceded a total of 17 goals and scored only two. A leaking defence is, therefore, Djibouti’s biggest headache coming to this fixture. Thus far, is safe to conclude Djibouti has lost their World Cup chances. This fixture is for Burkina Faso to lose and they will look to prove a worthy opponent in a group led by Algeria.
