TOGO V SENEGAL
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Togo have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Togo have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 6 goals on the way. We will just have to find out if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Senegal go into this game following on from a 1-3 WC Qualifiers - Africa win over Namibia in their previous game.
In their previous half-dozen outings, Senegal have helped themselves to a tally of 17 goals. Senegal have also scored in every single one of those games. In that time, they have had 4 goals go into their own net.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
SOUTH AFRICA V ZIMBABWE
South Africa fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 1-0 WC Qualifiers - Africa triumph against Ethiopia.
Over their prior six fixtures, Stuart Baxter's South Africa have managed to score a combined total of 9 times, an average number of goals per match of 1.5.
After being beaten in their last game against Ghana in WC Qualifiers - Africa action, Zimbabwe and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The strike force from Zimbabwe have failed to get amongst the goals over their previous 6 clashes, contributing the disappointing return of only 4. In those matches, The Warriors have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 6.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
AUSTRALIA V SAUDI ARABIA
Australia will be hoping for a better result after the 2-1 WC Qualifiers - Asia defeat last time out to Japan.
Australia haven’t had any problems with scoring, hitting the target in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve claimed a sum of 12 during that time while also conceding a total of 3.
Saudi Arabia will come into the meeting following on from a 3-2 WC Qualifiers - Asia win over China in their previous game.
A sequence of hard-working showings by the Saudi Arabia defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 fixtures overall. During the same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 14. We will have to find out if that trend will end up being sustained here.
Prediction: Both teams to score
