Our prediction for this match:
Kosovo and Burkina Faso take on each other at Stadiumi Fadil Vokrri in a highly-anticipated international friendly. The Kosovars recorded only one win in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and, as a result, they finished the process in the ultimate place in Group B. Alain Giresse’s troops are eager to return to winning ways, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Burkina Faso. A man to watch in the home team will be Mallorca attacker Vedad Muriqi, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
The African side, on the other hand, did well to make it to the Africa Cup of Nations semis in January. Les Etalons are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Pristina, but beating Alain Giresse’s men on the road is easier said than done. A close match is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
