Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2024 match:
Sunday’s football game at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium pits together Tanzania and Niger, the two teams who are eyeing a top-two finish. The Taifa Stars aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Uganda and they are surely capable of matching the Menas in front of home fans. There are no fresh injury worries in the home side ahead of the round 5 clash.
The visitors, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in all competitions, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on Tanzania this time out. The good news for the visitors is that La Louviere forward Zakari Junior Lambo has recovered from the injury he suffered in the last group game. It has to be noted that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Stade de L’Amitie earlier in the process.
Highlighted Team (Tanzania):
Affiliated to the Confederation of African Football, Tanzania national football team play their home games at National Stadium in Dar es Salam. Tanzania have yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals, but they will have a chance to prove their worth at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Taifa Stars take on Senegal at 30 June Air Defence Stadium on their debut at the African Nations Cup and they will face the likes of Algeria and Kenya in the group stages as well. Tanzania play their home games in white shirts and white shirts, whilst their away colours are white and black.
The Taifa Stars played their first ever international game against Tanganyka, with the team beating the minnows 7-0 back in 1945. The Tanzania national football team recorded their biggest win against Somalia on December 1, 1995, whilst they suffered their biggest defeat in 1956 against Kenya (0-9).
