Congo vs Namibia Prediction: World Cup Qualifier on 11.11.2021

Two sides that are already eliminated out of contention of reaching the next round meet in CAF World Cup qualification this week. Congo and Namibia will both be in a battle to avoid finishing bottom of the group, but will either side be able to claim a rare win?

World Cup Qualifier Preview

Congo and Namibia may both be unable to reach the next round of qualification, but both will be looking to end the qualification campaign on a high. Congo are the nation currently bottom of the standings in Group H, as they have picked up just two points.

They have been conceding goals at ease throughout qualification, as they have already allowed seven. Only Namibia have conceded more goals to this point. Both sides have been much better in the attacking third, as they have scored four goals. Only Senegal, who have already finished top of the group, have scored more.

Congo lost for the second time in qualification in their last game in October, as Togo ran out 2-1 winners. That would have been a disappointment, as they picked up a point on the road against the same opponents just a couple of days earlier. Guy Mbenza scored for Congo in that game to level the scores after 70 minutes, before they allowed Togo to go back into the lead just seven minutes later.

Namibia are slightly above Congo in the current standings, as they have picked up two more points than their rivals. A win in this fixture will ensure that they can’t finish bottom of the standings, but they will need to improve in defence.

They were handed two heavy defeats in their last two matches, as they lost 4-1 away from home against Senegal, before losing 3-1 in the reverse fixture just a couple of days later.

Congo vs Namibia Head to Head

Congo have a fine record in this fixture, as they have won three of the five meetings. However, they haven’t won in two against Namibia, with the visitors having won 3-0 on their last visit to Congo in June 2014. The previous game between the sides in qualification ended 1-1.

Congo vs Namibia Prediction

Congo have a great overall record in this fixture, and have at least shown bright moments in their last two outings. We give them the pick for this game on Thursday.
