Afcon 2019, South Africa v Seychelles Preview


Qualification for Afcon 2019 continues this weekend when Bafana Bafana host the Seychelles at Soccer City on Saturday. Nothing less than a big victory will be acceptable for the home side.

South Africa currently sit second behind Libya on goal difference in Group E and given that African power house Nigeria, are sitting just a point behind them in third, victory over the Seychelles is non-negotiable.

The Seychelles have already suffered 2 heavy defeats going down 5-1 away to Libya and 3-0 at home to Nigeria.  Bafana started with a confident away 2-0 win over a Nigerian side which had previously had a very strong record against them.  They then started 7/10 favourites at home to Libya but failed to break their opponents down and the match finished goalless.

These sides have never met in a competitive football match.

South Africa 1/12

Draw 37/4

Seychelles 24/1


Suggested bet:  Handicap, South Africa (-2) at 19/20.

Bafana Bafana have a habit of fluffing their lines at home but they will surely be too strong for the Seychelles who are very much an amateur outfit.  I am expecting the home team to win this by 3 goals or more.
