Our Top Free CAF World Cup Qualifier Predictions for Mali vs Rwanda

Rwanda has lost a place in the next FIFA World Cup after a dismal performance in the qualifier matches. However, the hosts is not a team to easily defeat, especially defensively. Here are our best three predictions for this game.

Note: Odds from Netbet are subject to change.

Mali to win

Mali is our favourite team to win this game. The visitors need to win this or lose a place in the next World Cup. Despite being top of Group E, Mali is only two points clear of second-placed Uganda. But because Mali has a strong defence that has leaked no goal since the World Cup Qualifiers started, we think they will edge out Rwanda, a team that has leaked four goals in four games.

Under 2.5

Despite leaking four goals so far in the tournament, Rwanda is historically a defensively strong team. Playing in front of fans in one advantage for Rwanda in this fixture. We don't think the hosts will go down without a fight. And so, while Mali has the best attack in the Group, we are settling for fewer than three goals in this game.

Goals on one side

Rwanda has scored only one goal in four WCQ matches while Mali has 7 goals in as many games. It is sharp contrast that should equally show in this fixture. Our tipsters at Football Whispers have settled on Mali to win this game with a clean sheet.

Match Preview: Mali on Brink of Playing in the Next World Cup

Mali needs three points against Rwanda to secure their place in the next World Cup. However, we are expecting a tough duel in Kigali when the North African nation sends its squad to Kigali for the fifth game of Group E in WCQ. For Rwanda, this fixture is more of a formality. The hosts have lost all avenues of securing a World Cup after bagging only 1 point in four matches. The host5s have also been poor in scoring goals, only managing to score once in three games. On the other hand, Mali has the best scoring record of 7 goals in Group E of WCQ. Uganda comes a distant second with two goals in as many games.
