Namibia and Senegal will battle for three points in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The game will be played at a neutral venue - the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, with Namibia billed as the hosts.

Both sides clashed on matchday three of the qualifiers and Senegal secured all three points with a comfortable 4-1 victory on home turf. Sadio Mane was one of four different goalscorers for the Teranga Lions.

That victory helped the west Africans maintain their lead at the summit of Group H, with maximum points garnered from three matches. Namibia are five points and one spot below them in the table.

This will be the eighth meeting between the two sides and Senegal have a much better record with six wins to their name.

Senegal's victory on Saturday put them in the driving seat of the group and another win on Tuesday will grant them automatic qualification to the next round as group winners.

Senegal are currently on a three-game winning run, while Namibia have won just one of their last five matches.

Namibia vs Senegal Prediction

Senegal simply have too much quality for Namibia to match and the difference in class between the two sides was pretty obvious in the first leg.

The Teranga Lions know that a win will guarantee them progress to the next round of the qualifiers. They will do everything in their power to finish the impressive job they have started. Barring a highly unlikely upset, there should be only one winner here.

Prediction: Namibia 0-3 Senegal
