The sides meet for the sixth time in history

Central African Republic and Madagascar meet for the second time in three days as the sides lock horns at the Stade de la Réunification in Douala, Cameroon, on Monday for 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.

Earlier in the week, the Central African Republic made light work of Madagascar in a 3-0 victory as a double from Louis Mafouta coupled with a goal from Isaac Ngoma gave them all three points.

Yet, the Wild Beasts remain in third position in Group E with four points in three games, trailing second-placed Angola by a head-to-head record - the Central African Republic lost 2-0 to them on matchday two.

In their bid for a first-ever AFCON appearance, Raoul Savoy's side cannot afford to drop points going forward, considering they face Angola and Ghana in their final two qualifying matches.

Madagascar remained at the bottom of the table with just a point in the bag. Although they are not mathematically out of the race yet, another setback in this game would surely end their chances of reaching a second AFCON finals.

Central African Republic vs Madagascar Head-To-Head and Key Numbers

Central African Republic vs Madagascar Prediction

The Central African Republic will be full of confidence after their last win and might approach this match with the same intensity as they look to keep the heat on the top two sides.

Madagascar are hanging by the ropes and their lack of quality will likely see them go down to the Wild Beasts yet again.
