Uganda and Rwanda clash in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers for the second time in three times

Uganda invite Rwanda to St Mary's Stadium for FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying action as they look to close the gap at the top with Mali in the Group E standings of the CAF second-round qualifiers.

Rwanda are winless after three games in qualifying and have scored just one goal so far. Uganda have also scored just once in three games so far, with that goal coming against the visiting side on Thursday, as they recorded their first win of the campaign.

Fahad Bayo scored the winning goal just before the half-time whistle in that game and with home advantage this time around, they will be looking to record an even better result.

Uganda vs Rwanda Prediction

Uganda scored their first goal of the campaign in their previous outing and should head into the home game with their heads held high. They are yet to concede a goal and we expect their record to continue here as well.

A win and a clean sheet for Uganda look like the most likely outcome from the game.

Prediction: Uganda 2-0 Rwanda.
