Djibouti form (all competitions): WLLDLL

Djibouti were left red-faced following an 8-0 humiliation at the hands of the Desert Foxes of Algeria at the Stade Mustapha Tchaker in Blida on Thursday. Islam Slimani was the star of the show as he netted four times while Ramy Bensebaini, Baghdad Bounedjah, Riyad Mahrez and Ramiz Zerrouki all got on the scoresheet to complete the rout. That was Riverains de la Mer Rouge's third-heaviest defeat in their 74-year history behind 10-1 and 9-0 losses to Uganda and Rwanda respectively. Monday's hosts, who are currently 182nd in the FIFA rankings, are unbeaten in their last three matches on home turf and defeated Somalia 1-0 in the most recent outing on June 15. However, they are one of eight teams deemed unfit to host international matches after their venues failed inspection by a team from the continent's football regulating body CAF.

Djibouti possible starting lineup:

Mbonihankuye; Robleh, Mohamed, Wais, Abdourahman, Farada; Siad, Hamza, Elabeh, Hassan; Mahabeh

 

Niger form (all competitions): DLLLWL

Niger endured another disappointing outing as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Stallions of Burkina Faso at the Stade de Marrakech on Thursday. With the scores level at half time, Lassina Traore opened the scoring from the penalty spot half an hour into the second half, before Mohamed Konate made sure of the result three minutes later. The Dama gazelle have now picked up just two wins from their 13 fixtures since the turn of the year, which have come in international friendlies versus Cameroon and Sudan. Both of those victories also came away from home, and Monday's visitors will be looking to emerge triumphant on their travels once again.

Niger possible starting lineup:

Daouda; Mohamed, Garba, Lybohy; Diabate, Wonkoye, Adebayor, Oumarou; Lambo, Moumouni, Moutari

 

Betting Verdict:

Djibouti have some serious picking up to do following that huge defeat to Algeria, and Niger will be looking to take advantage of that. We foresee a low-scoring affair in this one with the visitors just managing to edge it by the odd goal.

 

Djibouti VS Niger

O/U Pick: Under 2.5 goals
