Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Estadio Nacional de Cabo Verde will host Wednesday’s AFCON qualifier between Cape Verde and Rwanda. Cape Verde did well to hold Cameroon to a goalless draw in their opener, with the team dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with Mozambique in their second group game. The Blue Sharks are eager to record their first win of the process, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Rwanda.
A man to watch in the home team will be Al-Ittihad midfielder Garry Rodriguez, who played for the likes of Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, and PAOK in the past. The Amavubi, on the other hand, made a slow start to their qualifying campaign, with the team losing to both Mozambique and Cameroon. Since Rwanda have yet to find the net in the process, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Cape Verde.
