Libya vs South Africa Prediction & Betting tips
In the summer, the Africa Cup 2019 takes place in Egypt. The qualification is almost complete. 14 of the 24 participants are confirmed. The last tickets will be awarded this weekend. Most favorites are already safe with it. This also means that this tournament may take place at a high level. But again and again great teams fail to qualify. In Italy or the Netherlands you are welcome to ask. This fate threatens at African level now also a supposed heavyweight. South Africa must fear for the participation until the last minute.
It has the Bafana Bafana on the final day no easy task in front of the chest, because the South Africans must compete abroad in the direct competitor Libya. However, the disadvantage of the Libyans is that, for political reasons, they are still not allowed to play home games in their own country. Therefore, this encounter also takes place in neighboring Tunisia. That makes it difficult for us, of course, to place a tip on the supposed hosts in the duel between Libya and South Africa. However, the North Africans have already got used to this fact. It therefore hardly matters whether the Elf of Darko Novic starts at home or away. The starting position is as follows. Nigeria are already qualified with ten points. South Africa have nine points to their name and could be overtaken by Libya on the final day, currently seven points. The Libyans need a victory, South Africa would solve the ticket with a draw. If we consider that the Bafana Bafana is difficult to crack, then we would predict before the kick-off between Libya and South Africa, that the guests from the South will qualify for the African Cup. Maybe on Sunday it will be really dramatic again. The kick-off for the qualifier for the 2019 Africa Cup between Libya and South Africa in the Stade Taieb Mhiri of Sfax in Tunisia will take place on 24.03.2019 at 17:00.
The 2018 World Cup in Russia has shown that the North Africans have again taken the lead in the football of the black continent. This also means that Libya is certainly not an underdog, even if the team of Fawzi Al Issawi is certainly not as strong as Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt. Nevertheless, one should not underestimate the Libyans, especially as they have been able to draw attention in recent years in the African Nations Cup, including the triumph in 2014, sustainable. In general, the team from Libya hardly contests internationals. In the last six games, there was only one victory. This also means that there was only one success in the last twelve months. Due to its political isolation, Libya is not exactly an opponent you invite to test games; Therefore, only official matches like the last time in the qualification for the Africa Cup are available.
The fact that they still have the chance to qualify for the finals for the third time since 1982 is an expression of the positive development in Libyan football. However, we will hardly be able to accept the last international match last November as a benchmark for the current form of this team. The Seychelles had a clear 8-1 victory. Comparable with a middle-class team in Europe, for example, which lands a runaway victory in San Marino. Anis Mohamed Saltou was the most prominent actor of the Libyans and met three times alone. Other goals included Motasem Sabbou, Khalid Almaryami, Salem Baleid, Rabia Al Shadi and Hamdou Elhouni. It’s hard to say what it will look like with the line-up against South Africa. The information about Libyan football is very sparse overall. Most of the players play in the national league and will hardly say anything to any of our betting friends if they are not intensively involved with the Libyan football.
Actually, South Africa would have to be a major power in African football. The national league is arguably the best in Africa, but the national team does not succeed in keeping up with the successful teams at the top of the continent. For the last two World Cups and even for the last African Cup the Bafana Bafana was not qualified. Stuart Baxter was chosen to lead the South Africans back to more successful regions. A missed qualification for the Africa Cup would of course be counterproductive. However, in the South African camp nobody believes in failure because they have not lost in seven matches. Especially defensively, the Bafana Bafana is very compact and safe. Expression of which is only a goal in the previous five qualifiers. Therefore, we can imagine that we could give a hint on sub-goals in the match between Libya and South Africa. A white vest of the South Africans is certainly not unlikely.
They could not hold in December in two duels against Nigeria and Paraguay, but both opponents are likely to be more valued than Libya. After all, there were no defeats for the team of Stuart Baxter in these two games. In the friendly match against Paraguay, the guests went in Durban with a 1-0 lead.
Only in injury time Percy Tau equalized for South Africa. At least since this game, the thoughts turn only to this showdown for the final ticket for the finals. Nevertheless, Stuart Baxter does not really know what to expect in Tunisia, at least in terms of personnel. However, the coach of the South Africans assumes an offensive but controlled opponent. Nevertheless, the guests from the south want to score an early goal to keep the handle of action in their hands. From a personal point of view, Dean Furman, Sibusiso Vilakazi, Kamohelo Mokotjo and Bradley Grobler will leave some veteran players unavailable for injury.
