Congo favourites to win
Congo DR is our favourite team to win this match. The visitors won three of four previous encounters with Madagascar and based on recent stats, we think Congo DR is still the better side in this fixture. In the last five fixtures, Congo DR had 2W, 2D and 1L while Madagascar had 1D and 4L in as many matches.
Our second prediction for this game is more than two goals at full-time. We argue that in the last four meetings between these teams, three had three or more goals. Moreover, Madagascar is struggling defensively based on their recent matches, a record that makes them vulnerable in this fixture. The hosts have leaked 10 goals in the last five games and only scored two goals in one match within that duration. On the other hand, Congo DR leaked three goals and kept two clean sheets in as many matches.
Both teams will not score
We also think this will be a one-sided scoring affair. While Congo DR only failed to score in one of their last five games, Madagascar failed to find the net in four of their last five matches.

Match Preview: Struggling Madagascar Staring at Potential Defeat
Madagascar is a struggling team right now and could face yet another humiliating defeat in this fixture. The hosts have lost all the first three group J matches in the CAF World Cup qualifiers. They have leaked six and scored only two, a record that doesn’t look impressive. The hosts are ranked 100th by FIFA while Congo DR is position 67. The visitors are still in contention for the top spot since only two points separate them from first-placed Benin in Group J. We expect Congo DR to go all out to secure all points in this match or at least settle for a point to stay in the race for the top spot.
