BTTS @ 11/10 (2.10)
Despite beating Seychelles 7-1 in a friendly fixture back in September 2021, Comoros hasn’t been the team that scores lots of goals. Their major project has been defensive challenges marred with inconsistencies one game after the other. A similar story is evident on Gabon’s side. They may be the least favourite in this game but poor defending has been a big worry for head coach, Patrice Neveu. We have picked BTTS because these teams have defensive problems.
Gabon to score the first goal of the match @ 33/50 (1.66)
