Guinea vs Malawi: Our Best Two Picks for the AFCON Fixture
Malawi lost four games in a row before a 2-0 victory in a pre-AFCON friendly fixture against Mali. On the other hand, Guinea also comes to this match with a 2-0 victory against Rwanda in pre-AFCON match. The victory came on the back of a six-match winless streak of 4D and 2L. Here are the reasons we think the game will end as we have predicted above.
Over 2.5@ 8/5 (2.60)
Guinea and Malawi will test their strength against each other in the first AFCON 2022 engagement for both sides. These teams first met in 2009 World Cup qualifiers, games that recorded three goals of a 2-1 scoreline in favour of both sides. They met again in 2016 AFCON qualification matches, games that ended 0-0 and 2-1 on the bounce. There has been a scoreline of 2-1 in three of the only four encounters between Guinea and Malawi. And since these teams are currently having defensive challenges, we think there will be more than two goals in this match.
BTTS @ 81/50 (2.62)
