South Sudan Prediction – Can South Sudan break poor run of results?

The 1st round of these African World Cup Qualifiers are a two-legged affair with the 1st leg being played at the Al-Hilal Stadium as South Sudan look to break their recent woeful sequence of results which have seen the hosts endure a terrible 13-match run without a win in all competitions.

Within this poor sequence of results, South Sudan have lost their last 7 matches on the trot which consists of the hosts conceding a total of 19 goals and scoring just a mere 3 goals in reply – they’ll therefore be expected to be up against it when they face Equatorial Guinea on Wednesday night, despite holding home advantage.

Results at home have also been poor as South Sudan have failed to win any of their last 7 matches on home turf in all competitions, which also includes losing their last 4 matches on the trot as they’ve suffered losses to Mali, Gabon and back-to-back defeats to Burundi.

In their previous meeting with Wednesday night’s visitors, Equatorial Guinea, South Sudan were handed a heavy 4-0 defeat, so tonight’s 1st leg could be a difficult encounter for the hosts.

Equatorial Guinea Prediction – Can Equatorial Guinea gain 1st leg lead?

By comparison, Equatorial Guinea’s recent results have been far more solid and encouraging as the visitors have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches overall in all competitions, which was a 3-2 loss away at Saudi Arabia in a recent international friendly back in March.

Aside from that, Equatorial Guinea have picked up recent wins over Sudan in a heavy 4-1 win away from home in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier along with a 2-1 home win against Chad in the Africa Nations Championship.

In addition, Equatorial Guinea also picked up two draws on the trot away from home at Liberia (in a friendly) 1-1 and a 3-3 draw away at Chad in the aforementioned Africa Nations Championship which resulted in a 5-4 aggregate win over two legs against Chad, that has seen Equatorial Guinea progress through to the 2nd round of the Africa Nations Championship.

Results away from home have been poor, there’s no getting away from that (as the visitors have won just 1 of their last 15 away from home) but it’s horses for courses and the majority of Equatorial Guinea’s opponents have been of a higher calibre than that of South Sudan with respect.
