Equatorial Guinea vs Namibia Match Analysis & Prediction
15/11/2023 4:00 pm
The journey to the 2026 World Cup commences for both Equatorial Guinea and Namibia with an encounter at Nuevo Estadio de Malabo on Wednesday.
The teams head into this contest currently on a contrasting run of results but the match promises to be a keenly-contested affair nonetheless.
Equatorial Guinea played out a goalless draw against Burkina Faso when the sides met in an international friendly game on October 13.
Despite being in the ascendancy for large spells of the game, Juan Micha’s side were unable to get the all-important goal that their dominance perhaps merited.
As a result, The Elephants are now unbeaten in seven straight matches dating back to September 2022, picking up three wins and four draws.
Having not lost a home game in nearly two years, Equatorial Guinea will heavily fancy themselves to get their World Cup qualifying campaign off to a winning start in front of their fans.
Meanwhile, Namibia were involved in a second straight goalless draw as they held the Bafana Bafana of South Africa to a stalemate on September 9.
The Brave Warriors showed great resolve and put on a highly-spirited display to avoid defeat in what was a largely one-sided affair at the Orlando Stadium.
However, Collin Benjamin’s side are now winless in five matches in a row and boast just one win from seven matches since the turn of the year.
