Victory for Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso is an inch closer to participating in the FIFA World Cup qualifier knockout stages. This fixture could either make or break their chances. We think they will edge out Niger before playing Algeria in the last match of Group A of CAF WCQ. The hosts defeated Algeria 2-0 in the reverse match away from home. In three meetings between these teams, Burkina Faso won all the matches with a clean sheet. We think they will have a clean swoop in this game.
Our second prediction backs a high scoreline in this fixture. The visitors have serious defensive challenges coming to this game and have failed to score against Burkina in the previous three meetings. And while the reverse fixture ended 2-0 in favour of the hosts, we think this fixture will have more goals.
Burkina Faso to win with a clean sheet
We are tipping Burkina Faso to win this game with a clean sheet. The hosts have 3W and 1L in the four games played so far. The three victories came with a clean sheet. On the flip side, Niger has 1W and 4L in their last four WCQ matches. The visitors have failed to keep a clean sheet in the competition.

Game Preview: Burkina Faso Edging Closer to World Cup Qualifier Playoffs
Burkina Faso has been exceptional in the World Cup Qualifiers Group stage fixture. The hosts have a 10-point tie with first-placed Algeria and hope they can keep the momentum going in this fixture against Niger. The visitors are distant third, thanks to defensive woes that have condemned them to just one win in four qualifier matches. For Niger to win this fixture, the visitors must do something extraordinary. However, with all hope of securing a place in the playoffs, a less motivated Niger will have no chance against a highly spirited Burkina Faso in this fixture.
