our main tip:
Under 2.5 Goals

Kenya vs Burundi prediction

Kenya will look to impose their will when they welcome neighbours Burundi on matchday 3 of the CAF World Cup Qualifiers to be played in Malawi’s Bingu National Stadium. The Harambee Starrs kicked off this campaign on the wrong footing as they lost 2-1 away to Gabon. They nevertheless showed flashes of brilliance in that loss and used the same to bounce back with an impressive 5-0 win at Seychelles on matchday 2. This will technically be their first home fixture and they will look to make the most of it.

Burundi are tied on 3 points with Kenya after also getting mixed results with a win and a loss in their opening two qualifiers. A 3-2 win over Gambia in their opener had them buzzing with confidence but a 2-1 loss at home to Gabon brought them back to earth. The Swallows will fancy their chances against their East African neighbours especially now that the game is being played in Malawi

A cagey affair is to be expected here. Both teams are looking at this match as one they need to win to keep pace with the group leaders Ivory Coast and Gabon who face off in this round. Again with regional superiority on the cards here, neither of these teams will cede too much ground to the other. As such we are picking Under 25 Goals as the main Kenya vs Burundi prediction for this match
