Guinea-Bissau have beaten Guinea only four times in 17 encounters

Guinea host Guinea-Bissau at the General Lansana Conté Stadium in Conakry on Friday in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Neither side have qualified for the third round as Morocco won Group I last month, so it's essentially a dead rubber.

However, with both sides participating in the AFCON in Cameroon in January 2022, they'll probably use these games as an opportunity to prepare for the tournament.

Guinea are still winless in the campaign and will be hoping to put a win on the board before closing out their campaign.

Meanwhile, Guinea-Bissau are looking to pick themselves up from back-to-back defeats at the hands of Morocco last month, losing 8-0 on aggregate.

Guinea vs Guinea-Bissau Head-To-Head

Guinea boast a terrific record against their neighbors, winning eight of their previous 17 clashes with Guinea-Bissau and losing only four times.

However, in the reverse fixture in September, the sides played out a 1-1 stalemate.
