  • Competition: World Cup Qualifiers, First Stage
  • Date: Monday, 10th June, 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC +1 / 21:00 CEST
  • Venue: Stade du 26 Mars (Bamako)

On Monday evening, Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone will face off in the 4th round of the First Stage in the World Cup 2026 Qualifiers at the Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako.

Burkina Faso are trying to secure its first World Cup appearance. In the last Qualification cycle, they had a really good run, almost reaching the third stage of the competition. Also, in the previous AFCON, Burkina Faso were solid, reaching the 1/8 Finals when Mali eventually won 2:1. In this WC Qualifiers, Burkina Faso won four points after the first three rounds and are five away from fist-placed Egypt and one point behind second-placed Guinea Bissau.

Sierra Leone are also one of the teams that have never been on a WC and struggled to reach the AFCON, appearing only once in the last 14 tournaments. In this WC Qualifiers, Sierra Leone started pretty well (for their standards), as they are 4th, but on a level with points with their next opponent, Burkina Faso.

Burkina Faso vs Sierra Leone pick: Both teams to score

Burkina Faso have been great for this type of bet, as both teams scored in five of the last six games in all competitions. They are in pretty poor form with only two points in those six games, but are more than capable of scoring at home against teams like Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone started these WC Qualifiers without scoring a goal in the first two games. Still, after that poor start, they had two friendly games against great teams (Morocco and Ivory Coast), and they scored on both occasions. Additionally, in the last game, they scored twice against Djibouti.

Considering all the above, we believe that both teams to score is the safest option for this World Cup Qualifiers match.

Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso team news

After a 2:1 loss against Egypt in the previous round, coach Brama Traoré spoke to the media. He said he knew the game in Egypt would be very tough but also noted they showed the quality to qualify for the upcoming World Cup. When asked about two quick goals they conceded, the coach said the defenders played well and didn't think they had problems at the back. 

Bertrand Traore, one of the best offensive players on the team and the team's captain, has not been called for the national team. Traore had a pretty poor season, which is probably why he was left out.
