South Sudan and Mali will meet in their second Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the St. Mary's Stadium-Kitende.
South Sudan suffered a loss with 1:0 in the first round against Gambia. Since March of 2021, the team lost 5 out of their 7 matches, only winning over Djibouti in the preliminary qualifying round of the AFCON.
Mali swept Congo with 4:0 in the first round of this competition, ending their previous 3 winless records. They won last 4 meetings agaisnt South Sudan, with goal/loss rate as 11/0. They kept unbeaten in 8 out of their 12 away matches.
After coming from a big win, Mali are in high morale, and their squad is better than their hosts, so I go for Mali in this round.
