Libya v South Africa, Afcon 2019 Preview


The Afcon 2019 qualification rounds come to an end this weekend and Bafana Bafana travel to Tunisia to take on Libya in their final match.

Nigeria have already booked their spot in the Afcon 2019 and for South Africa to join them they will either have to win or draw this game against Libya.  Libya hammered the Seychelles 8-1 on the road in their most recent match and that result keeps them in with a chance of qualification.  Both of their wins have come against the Seychelles and they drew 0-0 against Bafana and have lost twice against Nigeria.

Bafana Bafana are unbeaten, but having hammered the Seychelles at home they could only draw 0-0 with them on the road the following week.  Given that the Seychelles have been the whipping boys of the group that could prove to be a costly result.  Their other away match was an impressive 2-0 win in Nigeria to open their campaign.

Libya 19/10

Draw 22/10

South Africa 29/20


Suggested bet:  The draw at 22/10

Bookmakers are pricing this up as a very even match with Bafana Bafana slight favourites to beat Libya.  Recent history makes it very hard to have any confidence in Bafana, but at the end of the day I think they can get the point they are looking for to qualify.
