Namibia and Burundi clash for the first time since March 2016
Namibia and Burundi clash for the first time since March 2016

Namibia and Burundi clash at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa on Saturday in their opening game of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Group C.

The Brave Warriors have participated only thrice in the competition before, most recently in Egypt 2019 when they bowed out in the group stages after losing all three games.

Bobby Samaria's side will hope to make another appearance, although their recent form hasn't been convincing - Namibia are winless in their last five games in all competitions, losing four.

Their most recent defeat was a 2-1 friendly loss to Lesotho last week.

Burundi, ranked 27 places below Namibia, had also qualified for the 2019 edition and were knocked out in the group stages after failing to collect a single point.

The Swallows have looked in good shape lately, winning three of their last five matches, and will look to carry this form into the qualifiers.

Namibia vs Burundi Prediction

Namibia are currently on a downward spiral and that doesn't hold them in good stead going into Saturday.

Goals have also been hard to come by for them, netting just four times in their last five games.

Shitembi to lead Braves against Burundi Tafel Brave Warriors captain,Petrus Shitembi will return to the forefront of the Braves after being away for some time due to injuries. Shitembi plays his trade in Malaysia for Terengganu…

Luckily enough, Burundi aren't the most formidable side either, although their performances since last year have been decent enough.

Given the lack of genuine quality in both camps, we predict a low-scoring draw here.
