Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Sunday’s football game at Stade del’Amitie pits together Benin and Tanzania, the two teams who are vying for top position in Group J. Benin defeated Tanzania in Dar es Salaam thanks to Steve Mounie’s goal and the Squirrels are seen as favourites to win Sunday’s clash as well. Keep in mind that Amiens defender Youssouf Assogba is one yellow card away from suspension.
Tanzania, on the other hand, missed a couple of clear-cut chances to score in Thursday’s defeat, but seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on Benin. Midfielder Mzamiru Yassin is banned for the visitors, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home team. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Benin’s previous four games in all competitions.
Highlighted Player (Steve Mounié):
Steve Mounie is a Beninese footballer who plays for Huddersfield Town as a striker. Mounie is a product of Montpellier youth academy and, as a result, he was given a chance to prove his worth in the blue and orange shirt in Ligue 1 at senior level.
After scoring 14 goals in 37 appearances for la Paillade in the French elite division, the 190-cm-tall attacker moved to Huddersfield Town in 2017, but it has to be noted that he spent the 2015/2016 season at Nimes as a loan player. Steve Mounie signed a four-year deal with the Terriers and he made his competitive debut for the club on August 12, 2017, scoring a brace in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The attacker who was born in Parakou (Benin) on September 29, 1994 will represent the Benin national team at the 2019 Africa Cup of nations. Mounie scored his first ever goal for the national team in a 2-1 win over South Sudan in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
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).
