Madagascar Prediction- Can Madagascar break 6-match run?

Madagascar sit in 2nd place in Group B following their opening match in Group B which ended in a 2-2 draw with Guinea and a goal difference of zero.

They now find themselves in a direct three-horse race for the final and second spot in the group after Nigeria have stormed to the top of Group B.

Nigeria have collected two wins out of two matches to give them 6 points and a 5-point lead over both Madagascar and Guinea, while Burundi are just 1 point behind these two nations.

Recent form and results for Madagascar have been disappointing as they’ve failed to win any of their last 6 matches overall in all competitions.

This 6-match sequence includes 4 defeats to Sudan, Senegal, Kenya and Mauritania, while also drawing with Luxembourg and the aforementioned Guinea.

The bigger picture shows us that Madagascar have won just 5 of their last 20 matches overall, but they’ve never played their Thursday afternoon’s opponents, Burundi, before on the international stage.

Burundi Prediction – Can Burundi avoid a third defeat on the trot?

Burundi suffered a setback in their Africa Cup of Nations campaign as they lost 1-0 to Group B leaders, Nigeria, in their opening match of the group phase.

They’ll therefore be desperate to avoid a second defeat in this tournament, and a third loss on the bounce following a 2-1 loss to Tunisia prior to this competition.

Recent results have produced just 1 win out of their last 12 matches in all competitions for Burundi, which was a 5-2 win at South Sudan.

However, Burundi have lost just 4 of these 12 matches which were defeats to Kenya, Uganda, Tunisia and Nigeria.

Interestingly, there’s also been a spate of draws too where Burundi have been concerned – in fact, 7 of these 12 matches have ended in stalemates.

Indeed, 9 of Burundi’s last 16 matches overall have ended in draws and they may well settle for a point here as they look to avoid a third defeat on the trot.

Burundi have never met Madagascar before and so both teams are new opponents of each other in this clash.


Key-Facts – Madagascar v Burundi

  • Madagascar have failed to win any of their last 6 matches overall
  • 9 of Burundi’s last 16 matches overall have ended in draws
  • These two nations have never met before in international football


Betting Tips Verdict

Madagascar and Burundi will be checking each other out in this their first ever meeting and this could end up in a stalemate.
