Comoros will be looking to make it two wins from two in Group H of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers when they visit the National Heroes Stadium Stadium to face Zambia on Tuesday.

The hosts, who were handed an opening-day defeat, will be looking to quickly bounce back and get their campaign up and running.

Zambia were on the receiving end of a 3-1 defeat away to Ivory Coast in their group opener on Friday.

The Chipolopolo now return home where they are on a two-game unbeaten run, claiming one win and one draw in that time.

However, Zambia will fancy their chances of picking up their first win of the qualifiers as they take on an opposing side who they have beaten in each of the last two meetings between the teams.

Elsewhere, Comoros got their qualification campaign off to a flyer as they claimed a comfortable 2-0 win over Lesotho last time out.

They have now won three of their last four games across all competitions, with January’s 2-1 loss to Cameroon being the exception.

While Comoros will look to pick up a third successive victory, they have managed just one win from their last six away games, losing four and claiming one draw in that time.
