- Football Whispers Prediction Two-Madagascar to win @ (odds not yet available)
- Football Whispers Prediction Three-Total goals: Over 2.5@ (odds not yet available)
Note: Odds from Netbet are subject to change.
We expect both teams to score in this fixture. They are both struggling defensively, a record that saw both sides score at least two goals in the reverse fixture. Poor defending is also the reason why Madagascar lost seven of their last ten games while Tanzania lost six in as many previous games.
The hosts to win
These teams have nothing to play except for pride. For that reason, home advantage should come in handy for Madagascar in this game. Despite being the least favourites in the reverse game, Madagascar came from 2-nil down to score equalize against Tanzania before the break. The visitors should do better in this game and possibly edge out Tanzania in a less significant match.
We are predicting an open game when Madagascar hosts Tanzania for the last group stage match in CAF World Cup qualifiers. Poor defensive record and little to play should also contribute to a high scoreline in this game.

Game Preview: Tanzania Makes Last Attempt at World Cup Qualifiers
Tanzania is three points shy of the top spot in CAF WCQ Group J. However, to qualify, the hosts must score at least five goals in this fixture. They must also win this match with a clean sheet to have any hope of securing the top spot. But that also depends on how Congo DR will perform in the next fixture against Benin. In a nutshell, Tanzania's chance of participating in the next World Cup is slim given that second-placed DR Congo and first-placed Benin are separated by only two points. For Madagascar, it is all about honouring this fixture. The visitors have lost three away games before this trip, during which they leaked 7 and scored 2 goals. On the flip-side, Tanzania has 1W and 2L at home. The hosts scored 3 and conceded 6 goals at home before this final match against Madagascar.
