2022 FIFA World Cup CAF Qualifiers Predictions for March 29

Last Friday, five FIFA World Cup African qualifiers were played in Leg 1. Four days later, it’s time for reverse fixtures to be played. I’ll now share with you my CAF World Cup qualifiers picks for all five of Tuesday’s games.

Nigeria to Beat Ghana

Nigeria drew 0-0 with Ghana in the first leg in a game that’s best described as boring. We didn’t see too many excitements that day, mainly because Nigeria’s gameplan was to protect their goal with all they got. As a result, Super Eagles had zero shots on the opposition goal.

Neither team can be too proud with its offensive display in 2022. So far this year, Nigeria has scored six goals in five games, while Ghana’s tally is just three goals in five matches.

This Tuesday, it should be different. With the help of their fans at Lagos National Stadium, Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Iheanacho, and others should be able to bring Nigeria a win in 90 minutes.

Senegal to Beat Egypt

Another team that should get a win in the regular 90 minutes is Senegal. Sadio Mane & Co. need to beat Egypt to cover the one-goal deficit from the first leg.

Senegal lost last Friday because of an own goal by left-back Saliou Ciss in the fourth minute of the match. After getting 1-0 up, Egypt “parked the bus” in front of their goal, delegating Mo Salah and Trezeguet with the job of creating chances from counterattacks.

Senegal loves playing in front of its fans, the evidence being that this team is without a loss in competitive matches at home since 2013. Plus, Senegal is without a single home loss to Egypt in history.

It’s likely Egypt will employ the same strategy on March 29, but this time, we should see Senegal finding a way to break the opposition defense.

Algeria and Cameroon to Draw

Algeria has a 1-0 advantage from the first game, meaning that it’s up to Cameroon to try and win on Tuesday. The trouble is that Algeria seems to have a better roster, the proof being that bookmakers see this team as a 2.00 favorite.

Cameroon was the dominant side in the first game with Algeria, but its forwards failed to make their chances count. We could see history repeating itself on Tuesday.

Keep in mind that Algeria’s main motivation isn’t to win this game, but to avoid losing it. That said, we’ll probably witness a real battle in the center of the pitch, with only a few goal chances on both ends.

Morocco to Beat DR Congo

DR Congo is one of the worst teams that have made it to Round 3 of the African World Cup qualifiers. Nevertheless, these guys still managed to get a 1-1 draw with Morocco last Friday despite entering the game as huge underdogs.

Why did Morocco fail to beat DR Congo in the first leg? Well, its players had a bad day, missing plenty of goal chances, as well as a penalty shot.

This time, the game is played on Morocco’s turf, which is where this team is 3-0 in 2022, with a score differential of 5-1. Even if that wasn’t the case, I’d still back Morocco as its players are simply way better than those playing for Congo.

Mali to Beat Tunisia

Yep, you’ve read it correctly – I think the 3.20 underdog is going to win on Tuesday. Sure, Mali is facing a Herculean task trying to come back after a 1-0 defeat at home. Still, I think these guys can pull it off.

St. Liege defender Moussa Sissako had a terrible game in Leg 1, scoring an own goal and getting sent off early in the game. As a result, his team had no chance to do much against Tunisia.

To understand why I think this game could result in a huge upset, make sure to check out my Tunisia vs. Mali prediction.
