Lesotho vs Rwanda Prediction

Lesotho and Rwanda have been the surprise packages of Group C. They currently occupy the top two spots in a group that also contains South Africa and continental giants Nigeria. Lesotho impressively held the Super Eagles to a draw on their own patch last year. They are unbeaten after three games, registering their first win of the qualifiers last time out to build confidence.

Rwanda, for their part, have also made an impressive start to the qualifiers and a convincing victory here would take them to the summit of the standings. The defeat to Benin saw them drop down from top spot and Torsten Spittler's side will be looking to get back to winning ways. Their games have tended to be low-scoring.

Lesotho are the designated home side but the game is scheduled to take place in South Africa, effectively making it a neutral game. Although one side could nick a win, we are backing the two sides to share the spoils in a low-scoring stalemate.

Prediction: Lesotho 1-1 Rwanda
