Off the back of contrasting results in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers, both sides will look to get one over the other and begin their World Cup dream on a high.

Burundi were left disappointed on September 12 as they fellto a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Cameroon in the Group C finale of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

That defeat saw Burundi finish rock bottom in Group C, narroly missing out on a first AFCON appearance since 2019 by one point to runners-up Namibia.

Jimmy Ndayizeye’s side have now failed to win six of their last seven matches across all competitions, losing four and drawing two since November 2022.

Burundi’s only victory in that time came in June 20, when they beat Namibia 3-2 at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium, their first competitive victory since overcoming Muritania 3-1 in November 2020.

Meanwhile, Gambia turned in a superb show of fighting spirits in their last game of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers as they fought back from two goals down to rescue a 2-2 draw against Congo on September 10.

Having made their first AFCON appearance two years ago, Tom Saintfiet’s side picked up 10 points from six matches to finish second in Group G and secure successive appearances in the continental tournament.

While the Scorpions will look to begin their qualifying campaign on a high, they have struggled to grind out results on their travels, where they have failed to win four of their last five matches across all competitions.

Burundi Team News

Ndayizeye has called up 27 players for the qualifying matches against Gambia and Gabon, with the likes of Fiston Abdul Razak and Bandari FC defender Shassir Nahimana headlining the squad.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns man Razak is two appearances shy of 50 senior caps and should lead the Burundi attack once again, while Sofapaka FC captain David Nshirimimana is a surprise omission.
