Mali vs Burkina Faso Match Preview and Prediction
Nevertheless, despite their mediocre performance in the group round, they have proceeded to the AFCON knockout stages when Algeria, who were largely predicted, were disappointed. On Tuesday, they will take on a really difficult opponent in an improved Mali team.
Mali’s streak of victories over opponents in all competitions grew to 11 games following a goalless draw with Namibia. They qualified for the knockout stages as Group E winners thanks to their overall undefeated record in Group E.
Conversely, Burkina Faso’s winless streak in the campaign grew to two games with a loss to Angola. In light of all of these findings, we anticipate Burkina Faso’s match on Tuesday to be close.
