Rwanda vs South Africa Match Analysis & Prediction
21/11/2023 4:00 pm
Rwanda and South Africa will both be seeking three crucial points in their CAF 2026 World Cup qualfying tie at Stade Huye on Tuesday.
The hosts had to make do with a share of the spoild in their opening qualifier last time out, while the visitors managed to come away with a victory.
Rwanda played out a drab goalless draw against the Warriors of Zimbabwe when the sides met in Wednesday’s Group C opener.
The Amavubi Wasps had the majority of the ball possession and territorial advantage but were unable to find the all-important winner.
It is now six matches without a victory for Torsten Spittler’s side since the turn of the year, split evenly into three losses and three draws.
South Africa just about did enough to see off the threat of Benin at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
Hugo Broos’ side went into the break with a two-goal lead through strikes from Percey Tau and Khuliso Mudau, but had to hold on for the final 20 minutes after Steve Mounie pulled one back.
That ended a run of two straight draws for the Bafana Bafana, who are unbeaten in all but one of their last 17 matches across all competitions.
Off the back of successive victories in their last two competitive matches away from home, South Africa will be confident of getting the job done on the road once again.

Bonheur Mugisha is a doubt for this game after he was brought off with an injury scare midway through the match against Zimbabwe last time out.
Should Mugisha be deemed unfit to participate, Olivier Niyonzima will be expected to return to the lineup for his first start in two months.

Forward Percy Tau put on a man-of-the-match performance for South Africa in the victory over Benin and will be aiming to come up trumps once again.
Despite recently playing a fourth game in 18 days, Ronwem Williams is well on course to retain his place in goal for the visitors.
