On November 13, the national teams of Mali and Namibia will determine who has the best chances to compete with Guinea for the African Cup of Nations playoffs. Will the hosts manage to win easily? – the answer in the forecast of our website analysts.
Mali’s national team looks pretty good in Group A of the African Cup of Nations. In the first round, a draw was recorded with the Guinea national team (2: 2), and in the next game, they easily beat the Chad national team (2: 0).
In preparation for the confrontation with Namibia, the team played a friendly match with the Ghana national team and quite unexpectedly won a major victory (3: 0).
The Namibian national team lost to the Guineans in the opening match of the African Cup of Nations (0: 2). In the second round of Group A, they managed to rehabilitate themselves by beating Chad (2: 1). In the last match, the team drew with the South African national team (1: 1) as part of a friendly match.
The Namibians need to solve their problems with the defense, as the team concedes already in three games in a row far from the strongest opponents.
Mali won 3 of their last 4 matches
Mali won 5 of their last 6 home games
Namibia has lost 5 of their last 10 away games
In our opinion, it is difficult to disagree with the bookmakers in this match that the Malians are the favorites of the confrontation. Mali’s national team performs very well at home. In the last match, the team managed to defeat the strong Ghana team.
We believe that the Namibian national team has absolutely nothing to oppose the powerful game of the opponent. The Namibians are very weak in the last away matches. We play a small negative head start on the hosts. We expect their victory with a difference of two or more goals, but we still insure our choice in the event of a minimal triumph.
Our prediction is the victory of the Mali national team, taking into account the handicap (-1) for 1.71 in the bookmaker Vinline .
