The AFCON matchday 2 fixtures begins with Ghana looking to extend their perfect start to two and seal their top place position in Group c. Mohammed Salah’s side Egypt will be looking to make amend from their last 1-1 draw with Kenya as they travel to Comoros. Over here we will be giving analysis and make predictions based on the current form of the team.
Kenya vs Togo
The Group G African Cup of Nations second leg match will be between Togo and Kenya. Togo will be looking to make a come-back from their 1-0 loss to Comoros as they take on Kenya at Moi International Sports Centre. The Sparrow Hawks are determined to get back on track, but that will only be if they are able to win the game against Kenya. Kenya, on the other hand, did well to hold six-time AFCON Champions Egypt to a draw in their AF matchday one game. We are sure that the visitors will surely give their fans something to hold on to in the game.
As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama. Kenyans are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we are certain that they are capable of beating Togo. Togo failed to give their fans something to hold onto in their last game which ended 1-0. We are sure they can’t beat the home side. For us over here, it is a win for the home side.
Sao Tome and Principe vs Ghana
Ghana was able to beat South Africa in their first AFCON matchday one game by 2 goals to nil. They will be looking to build on that when they travel to Estadio Nacional 12 de Julho to face Sao Tome e Principe. The Black Stars kicked off their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign in style, and they won’t want to stop just now. Ghana aim to get their job done in Group C as soon as possible, and we are positive that they are going to win this game.
A man to watch in the away team will be Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, and the Ayew brothers. Thomas Partey found the back of the net in their last victory against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa. The opposition defenders should have the Ayew brothers to contend with. Sudan humiliated Sao Tome e Principe in their home ground which is a reason we will be betting on the away team.
Comoros vs Egypt
Comoros was able to record an impressive win in their first game although they are seen to be underdogs. The home side will be battling against six times AFCON Champions Egypt and they will be needed to reproduce what they did in the matchday one. Their home ground Les Coelacantes will be brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of the Egyptians. We are positive that they won’t be easily beaten in front of their home fans. Two players to watch in the home side will be Crvena Zvezda ace El Fardou Ben, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Egypt, on the hand, dropped two points in their last Group game when they drew 1-1 with Kenya. Their star player Mohammed Salah is presently nursing an injury. He won’t be able to feature in the game against Comoros. A close encounter is on the cards, and we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Monday’s qualifier. The two teams are meeting for the first time.
