Djibouti VS Gambia

Djibouti and Gambia face at Stade El Hadj Hassan Gouled, in a match for this stage of the Africa Cup of Nations Qualification (Preliminary Round). These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Djibouti presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Djibouti

The home team makes its debut in this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations Qualification with the intention of getting a positive result, using the home advantage in their favour. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 1 draw and 14 losses in away matches; against 2 wins, 1 draw and 12 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away draw against Swaziland by (0‑0). Djibouti has won 1 and lost 1 of the last 2 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 3 of the last 4 matches.

If there is one thing Djibuti wants to do, it is to pass to the next phase and for that it will do everything it can to avoid dropping along the way. As they will play the first match at home they know the need to get a good result, after all with the advantage they can have a little more peace of mind. This means that they must impose themselves on the field, show who is in charge of their home and not give spaces to their opponent. That said, if they act positively and make no mistakes they can celebrate a favorable outcome by the time they hear to the final whistle. In this match the best players available will be on the field.

Analysis of Gambia

The team plays its first match in this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations Qualification with the intention of getting a positive away result. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 3 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 9 goals scored and 15 conceded. In their last match, for the WC Qualification Africa, they got an away loss against Angola by (2‑1). In the last 4 away matches Gambia has won 1, tied 2 and lost 1. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 9 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 9 matches.

Gambia's life is not easy, but they will still try to surprise their opponent. As such their goal is to reach the group stage of the African Nations Cup qualifying even though they knows the difficulties. Even playing away from their domains it is important to get a good result to start with an advantage. Therefore, they will come to this game very cautiously, always knowing when to mark and attack, all not to be beaten. In this match the best players available will be on the field.

Betting suggestion:

The selection of Djibouti needs a good result in this first confrontation, but knows that they will not find any slack, even acting on their domain. Gambia has a well-rounded squad and are expected to bring difficulties to their opponents even away from home. We see the visiting team as a favorite because it is more qualified and for that fact we will bet on the Gambia victory until the final whistle of the judge.
