Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Togo will be looking to put an end to their three-game winless run when they host Comoros at Stade de Kegue in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. The Sparrowhawks missed out on a place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, and they are surely desperate to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. Since Claude le Roy’s troops are eager to give fans some cheer, we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field in Thursday’s football match.
Comoros, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Guinea. Les Coelacantes did well to put an end to their seven-game winless run, but they do not want to stop now. Given Togo’s poor form, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from the Stade de Kegue clash.
