Cape Verde will play host to Togo at the Stade de Marrakech in Group B of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Tuesday.

Both sides will head into the game seeking to get their campaign up and running after failing to win their opening game.

Cape Verde were on the receiving end of a disappointing 2-0 defeat away to Burkina Faso in their group opener on Friday.

They have now failed to win any of their last four competitive games, losing three and picking up one draw since January’s 1-0 win over Ethiopia in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

However, Cape Verde head into Tuesday’s game unbeaten in seven of their last eight home games across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Togo were held to a thrilling 2-2 draw by Eswatini in their group opener on Friday.

They are now unbeaten in each of their last seven games in all competitions, picking up three wins and four draws in that time.

Togo’s last defeat came back in September 2021, when they lost 1-0 against Namibia on home turf.

Cape Verde vs Togo Head-To-Head

This will be the fourth-ever meeting between the two nations. Cape Verde have picked up two wins from their previous three encounters, while Togo have managed one victory.
