Liberia and Central African Republic will face each other at Stade de la Reunification on Monday in the second round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. Central African Republic are third in Group C after the first round of matches thanks to their point against Cape Verde, while Liberia lost to Nigeria in their opener.

Only one team will progress to the third round of qualifying, so already Liberia are playing catch up as they prepare for this showdown with the Wild Beasts. Peter Butler's men have never previously qualified for the World Cup and have only competed in the Africa Cup of Nations on two occasions, most recently in 2002. After beating neighbours Sierra Leone 3-2 in the first round of qualifying, however, the Lone Star still have a chance of ending their long wait for tournament football. If that is to happen, Liberia need to quickly move on from Friday's 2-0 loss to Nigeria, with a couple of first-half goals from Kelechi Iheanacho proving the difference.


Liberia possible starting lineup:

Songo, Jerbo, Saygbe, Dweh, Paye, Bah, Njie, Macauley, Dorley, Sherman, Wilson



Central African Republic form (all competitions): LDLLLD

Butler's side have now lost five of their last six games overall, failing to score in four of those matches. Central African Republic enter this contest winless in eight, meanwhile, though they did end a three-game losing streak without scoring in their most recent match. Tresor Toropite struck to cancel out Julio Tavares's opener and earn the Wild Beasts a 1-1 draw against Cape Verde. With a couple of games against group favourites Nigeria still to come, Raoul Savoy's charges could do with getting three more points on the board in Monday's contest.


Central African Republic possible starting lineup:

Guinari, Ngam-Ngam, Ndobe, M'Vondo Ze, Ndokomandji, Niamathe, Samolah, Toropite, Urie, Yangao, Tattevin


Betting Verdict:

Liberia have struggled for goals and wins over the past two years, but this match with Central African Republic provides a good chance to build some confidence. The Wild Beasts are ranked slightly higher in the FIFA rankings than their opponents, though, and after claiming a point versus Cape Verde last time out, we can see them doing likewise here.
