Burundi have a 100% win record in the fixture

The Seychelles and Burundi lock horns at the Berkane Municipal Stadium in Berkane, Morocco on Tuesday for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. While the former are still searching for their first point of the campaign, their rivals from East Africa are looking to close the gap on the group's first two teams.

Ranked 197th in the world, the Seychelles are one of the weakest sides in the world, and their terrible results in these qualifiers have been a testament to the same. The Pirates were crushed 9-0 by Ivory Coast in the opening game, before a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Kenya. On Saturday, Gambia inflicted further damage on the island nation with a 5-1 trouncing.

Having conceded 19 times in just three games, Ralph Jean-Louis' side have the worst defensive record of any side in the CAF zone. Burundi can smell blood in the water here, and they will be looking to pounce on Seychelles' vulnerability to ignite their qualifying run.

With four points in three games, the Swallows are in fourth position, level with Kenya but behind on goal difference. They are winless in their last five official clashes, losing three (all coming in a row) before drawing twice. The East African side will feel they have a chance to return to winning ways here.
