BOTSWANA vs LESOTHO MATCH PREDICTIONS: SCORES: Botswana 2-0 Lesotho The Sotho side’s recent form has only just begun to look up but the Tswana national team are also coming off a wobble. Either way, Lesotho’s chances don’t look too great and Botswana should manage to defeat them, especially at home in Serowe.

SUMMARY: While 2015 differed wildly for Lesotho’s Likuena (crocodiles) and the Tswana Dipitse (zebras), both of them come into this friendly licking their wounds after consecutive defeats. Botswana’s African Cup of Nations qualification campaign is still alive despite their wildly wobbling form. A win in this friendly would get the Zebras back on the beaten path as they look to challenge for a spot in next year’s tournament. They face Uganda on the 4th of and a victory could see them top their group by the next round. For Lesotho - bottom with only one win - this could be the beginning of an unlikely fightback as they’re still in with a chance after 4 matches. Coach Seephephe Matete will be looking to mix it up and find that gilded formula before competitive action resumes in
