Head to Head


Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone meet for the first time in a competitive match. 

Burkina Faso Form


Burkina Faso lost 2-1 against Egypt away from home in their World Cup qualifying match last weekend. 

Burkina Faso were hit with a double blow early on in their contest against Egypt, conceding in the 3rd and 7th minutes of the match.

Burkina Faso pulled a goal back 11 minutes into the second half but could not find another goal, losing their first World Cup qualifier in Group A.

Burkina Faso have lost four of their last five games, including one draw. They scored four goals and conceded nine. 

The Stallions have registered one victory in their last five home fixtures, including one loss and three draws. They scored four goals and conceded three. 

Burkina Faso has been out-of-sorts lately but had a decent run at the AFCON finals and will look to replicate those performances against a Sierra Leona side prone to leaking goals at the back.

Sierra Leone Form 


Sierra Leone returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Djibouti in their FIFA World Cup qualifier at home midweek.

Sierra Leona got off on the right note against Djibouti, taking the lead in the 12th minute of the match before their opponents levelled matters after 35 minutes of play.

Sierra Leona did not take long after the restart to regain their advantage, scoring their second goal six minutes into the second half. 

The Leone Stars have secured one victory in their last five games, including three losses and one draw. They scored four goals and conceded 11. 

Sierra Leone have recorded one win in their last five away fixtures, including three defeats and one draw. They netted five goals and let in ten at the back. 

Sierra Leone will be pleased with their recent victory and will be out to replicate that performance against Burkina Faso; however, they will need to put in a solid defensive effort at the back to take home the points.
