Top 10 African matches to keep you boosted for this week

Woking vs Torquay United

Woking will be looking for a repeat result of the 0-2 National League victory vs Scunthorpe United. For Woking, the goals were scored by Rhys Browne (5') and Pádraig Amond (87'). It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Woking haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Woking have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 6 goals in the process.

Torquay United

Torquay United come into this match following on from a 1-0 National League win over Halifax in their most recent outing. The only name on the scoresheet from Torquay United was Asa Hall (72'). For 5 of the past six games involving Torquay United, a relatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell comes to a meagre 2.17, with the number of goals averaged by The Gulls standing at 1. In any event, it remains to be seen whether that pattern will be replicated in this next match.

Olympic Safi vs JS Soualem

Olympic Safi, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 0-1 Botola triumph versus Olympique Khouribga. Their more recent scorelines show that not much more can be done by the Olympic Safi rearguard. Olympic Safi have been stingy, resulting in the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their past six matches standing at 4. That trend might not follow through here, though.

JS Soualem

After tasting defeat last time out to Wydad Casablanca in Botola competition, JS Soualem and their fans will hope to get a better result this time. The stats don’t lie, and JS Soualem have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 6 goals in all. At the back, JS Soualem have been far from perfect.

Wydad Casablanca fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 0-1 Botola success vs JS Soualem. An interesting feature of recent Wydad Casablanca games is the number of results with a nil in them. From their previous sextet of matches leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would've been a loser.

Maghreb Fès

Previously, Maghreb Fès drew 1-1 in the Botola tie with Hassania Agadir. A succession of very capable showings by the Maghreb Fès defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 fixtures combined. In that period, their own attack force has managed to score 5. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained in this game.
