Rwanda eye revenge victory over Central African Republic

Posted on Nov 17 2018

Rwanda’s Amavubi team face Central African Republic seeking for a revenge victory when both teams meet in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group H qualifier at Huye Stadium on Sunday, November 18 November, kick-off at 15h30 CAT.

Rwanda comes into the clash placed bottom of the log with one point, three behind Central Africa Republic who occupy third slot and nine behind leaders Guinea Conakry. Cote d’Ivoire completes the group in second slot with seven points.

Rwanda who lost 1-2 to CAR in June last year will be aiming for a win to improve her ranking points following an early exit from the next year’s continental final.

Central African Republic are placed third with four points and still have a slim chance of qualifying to the continental time should they win their two remaining matches-against Rwanda (Sunday) and Guinea Conakry (March next year) and pray that second-placed Cote d’Ivoire loses their two encounters against Guinea Conakry and Rwanda.

Coach Mashami Vincent’s side secured a point last month when skipper Tuyisenge Jacques scored an equalizing goal against Guinea Conakry in the return leg held in Kigali City.

The Sunday’s qualifier will be handled by Malian international referee Boubou Traore, assisted by fellow country mates Baba Yomboliba as the first assistant referee, Drissa Kamory Niare who will be the second assistant referee while Ousmane Sidibe is the fourth official. Egyptian Ahmed Mohamed Megahed Osman is the match commissioner.

Elsewhere, Guinea will look to complete a ‘double’ over Ivory Coast when the teams meet at Stade du 28 September in Conakry on Sunday, 18 November 2018, kick-off at 19h00 CAT.

Guinea famously defeated the Elephants 3-2 in Bouake in the first round of group stage qualifiers in June 2017. The Syli Nationale came from 0-1 and 1-2 down to defeat their hosts through goals from Sadio Diallo, Francois Kamano and Naby Keita.

Paul Put’s team will secure a place at Cameroon 2019 with a win, while a draw will also be enough if Central African Republic doesn’t win the weekend’s other Group H against hosts Rwanda.
