Cape Verde vs Liberia Predictions
Cape Verde beat Liberia away from home a few days ago. They were impressive in AFCON qualifiers but tend to concede goals. Liberia are in terrible form and have a very leaky defence. I am tipping a home win with both sides on target.
- Cape Verde have won 3 of their last 5 matches (AFCON and WC Qualifiers).
- Cape Verde have seen BTTS Yes in their last 3 matches (WC Qualifiers).
- Liberia have lost 7 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).
- Liberia have conceded 2+ goals in 3 of their last 4 away matches (all competitions).
Head to Head
Cape Verde hold a 2-1 advantage across three previous meetings with no draws.
The sides last met on Thursday as Cape Verde won 2-1 in Liberia.
Cape Verde Form
Cape Verde have been in relatively good form of late. A 3-1 home win against Cameroon and 1-0 win in Mozambique sealed qualification for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.
After a 2-0 friendly defeat in Senegal, they began World Cup qualifiers with a 1-1 draw away in Central African Republic. A 2-1 home loss to Nigeria followed.
Their last match saw a last minute goal to win 2-1 in Liberia. Jamiro Monteiro equalised before a Garry Rodrigues winner in the final moments.
Cape Verde Injuries & Team News
Olympiacos winger Garry Rodrigues is expected to be handed a start after scoring the winner as a substitute in the last match.
Willy Semedo will play in support of key attacker Ryan Mendes. Dutch-born midfielder Jamiro Monteiro is pushing to start after a goal shortly after his introduction against Liberia.
