Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Burkina Faso and Djibouti face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Stade de Marrakech. Djibouti have been serving as a cannon fodder for their rivals in Group A, with the team conceding 16 goals in total in the first three group games. The rock-bottom side face yet another difficult task in Monday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Burkina Faso’s party in Marrakech.
The hosts, on the other hand, aim to overtake Algeria in top position in Group A, and given Djibouti’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. When the two teams met in Marrakech four days ago Burkina Faso rolled over Djibouti 4-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. A man to watch in the home team will be Standard Liege attacker Abdoul Tapsoba, who scored a brace in the last group game.
Highlighted Player (Bertrand Traore):
Bertrand Traore is a pacey left-footed winger who plays for Ajax on loan from Chelsea. The Burkina Faso footballers scored 17 goals in 48 league appearances for Vitesse before joining Ajax on 12 August, 2016. Traore made his Ajax debut in a 2-2 draw with Roda, coming as a substitute in the second half of the game.
He made his Champions League debut for the Amsterdammers against Rostov on August, 2016. Bertrand, though, is still a Chelsea player and his contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit expires on 30 June, 2019. Traore a winger, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward as well.
The Burkina Faso footballer was born on 6 September, 1995 and he made his debut for the Burkina Faso national team on 3 September, 2011 in a friendly game against Equatorial Guinea. The same year he won the Africa under 17 championship with Burkina Faso as the Stallions defeated Rwanda in the final of the tournament.
