USA – Kenya Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 22:00

Ugly scenes have been emanating from South Africa due to the ongoing xenophobic attacks, and this has affected the beautiful game of soccer. Bafana, however, seeks to show the beautiful side of South Africa when they welcome Madagascar to the Orlando Stadium. One would think that Bafana ought to be the stronger side, but recent form suggests otherwise. An earlier scheduled friendly with Zambia had to be cancelled after Zambia pulled out over the xenophobic concerns.

The Harambee Stars, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Algeria, but seeing that they head into Thursdays football match with the lack of confidence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Seeing that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous four meetings in all competitions, a low-scoring affair is on the horizon. The two teams meet for the first time ever at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Sadio Mane returned from suspension in a 1-0 loss to Algeria and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the Liverpool ace when Senegal take on Kenya in their last group game. Seeing that the Kenyans are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Mondays match, we believe that the Lions of Teranga will have a number of opportunities to score on the break.

After analysing their recent H2H records, the Mighty Tips experts suggest wagering on the prospect of both teams scoring. The Harambee Stars have had colourful results since the start of 2019. This option brings the least risk. Moreover, they are on a three-game winless streak. They lost two matches, one of which was in the previous round. Furthermore, this betting option promises fantastic betting odds. Their opponents, on the other hand, havent had much success either.

Today's match predictions

Since they will be making a trip to Honduras, they will be presented with another challenge to try and register a much-needed win away from home. Even though the two teams have met twice, Puerto Rico is yet to win. Given these statistics, the home team will likely emerge victorious once again. In their first encounter, Honduras won 4-0 and their second was a 2-2 draw.

Morocco has not forgotten that they were shown the exit door in the African Cup of Nations by Benin following a penalty shootout. At the end of regular time, both teams were still equal on goals and had to go all the way to penalties to determine the winner. Morocco was unbeaten before that and had impressed in the group stages only to be held by Benin when it mattered most. Both teams have left much to be desired in the last games.

Colombia may be seen as the underdogs, but Brazil has also failed to rise to the occasion in recent times. It will be a mouthwatering encounter that should see the books of history re-written at the Hard Rock Stadium. The all-South American friendly will see Brazil host Colombia to establish which team will have the bragging rights towards the end of the year.

Tunisia has more experienced players who have been exposed in different leagues all over the world, unlike their opponents who have a lower rating according to FIFA rankings. Mauritania needs a win having not registered any in all their last six games. The away team have struggled in front of goal, and it cannot be seen whether they will get any point from this game.

As expected, Tanzania were beaten by Senegal in the opening match of their Africa Cup of Nations campaign. The Taifa Stars are likely to stick to their defence-minded approach, but they could create goal-scoring opportunities on the break. Emmanuel Amunikes troops failed to impress on their debut at the prestigious tournament, but they are definitely capable of grabbing something from the Kenya game.

TODAYS MATCHES PREDICTIONS

Burkina Faso, on the other hand, did not make it past the qualifiers of the African Cup of Nations. Therefore we see Morocco winning this game to humble their visitors who have not had outstanding international matches results. Although they have a rich history, Burkina Faso is a sleeping giant who has been struggling to keep opponent strikers at bay. They came in third behind Mauritania and Angola. The home team has a strong squad, and they will be making their case in this friendly.
