Madagascar and Comoros lock horns at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa on Friday for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, looking to win their second qualifier in a row.

Following a narrow 1-0 loss to Ghana in their opening qualifying fixture, the Barea overcame Chad 3-0 in their next match to get their campaign up and running. Njiva Rakotoharimalala struck a brace in the game while Loïc Lapoussin added a third in stoppage-time.

Ranked 109th in the world, Romuald Rakotondrabe's side have since played two friendly games. They beat Burundi 1-0 followed by a 2-0 loss to Rwanda.

On the other hand, the Comoros have been a real surprise in the qualifiers thus far, winning both their games to sit atop their group and well in contention to reach the World Cup for the first time in their history.

The Coelacanths crushed the Central African Republic 4-2 in their first game before a narrow 1-0 victory over World Cup regulars, Ghana. That particular win has truly enforced their belief, and Comoros will be looking to continue their winning run to solidify their hopes of progression.

Since then, Stefano Cusin's side crushed Uganda 4-0 in a friendly this year followed by a goalless stalemate with Angola. Comoros are now unbeaten in six games.
