Lesotho vs Angola Betting Tips - Angola to Win

Both nations come into their second fixture in Group C still in contention to qualify for the next phase. After both teams picked up draws in their opening games in the section, Lesotho slipped to a 2:1 defeat against Namibia while Angola solidified their qualification hopes with a dramatic 3:2 win against the Seychelles.

Ahead of this competition, Lesotho have struggled to find much winning form, with a lack of goals the major issue. Leslie Notši´s side failed to win ten of their last 12 matches over the past year, while they scored just eight goals during that period.

Knowing they must win to have any chance of reaching the knockout phase, Lesotho will need to get on the front foot against an opponent that has built up a decent record in the past year.

Indeed, Angola have been in better form, although they have struggled to turn draws into victories. Since October last year, Pedro Gonçalves´s side won five, drew nine and lost only two of 16 international matches.

Angola claimed a 4:2 win when these nations last met at this competition last summer, while they have picked up wins in three of their last six meetings against Lesotho. A repeat outcome could be on the cards on Wednesday.

While it might not be easy, Angola´s great quality in the attacking third should prove the difference on Wednesday. Pedro Gonçalves' side showed plenty of character to come from behind to beat Seychelles, and I´m backing them to seal their qualification with another win at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
