How Bafana Can Qualify For AFCON 2019…

Bafana Bafana face Nigeria this weekend in a crucial African Cup of Nations qualifier, with Stuart Baxter’s side knowing exactly what they need to do to reach the showpiece in Cameroon.
 
 
As things stand, Bafana sit in second place on the Group E log with eight points from four games and two matches to play. As things stand they are the only unbeaten team in the group but will have been disappointed to drop points against Libya at home and Seychelles away.
 
That being said, Baxter’s side could leapfrog Nigeria and book their place in Cameroon on Saturday afternoon if they’re able to beat the current log leaders at FNB Stadium, with 11 points meaning that neither Libya nor Seychelles will be able to catch them.
 
Even a draw could be enough for Bafana if Seychelles manage to avoid defeat at home against Libya, and a shock win for Seychelles would mean that even a loss for Bafana in Johannesburg would see them qualify ahead of the Libyans.
 
However, with Libya expected to at least get a point at Stade Linite, anything less than victory will see the group go down to the final game, with Bafana facing Libya in March for a spot at Cameroon 2019.
 
Simply put, if Bafana don’t lose either of their final two games then they will be off to the AFCON next year, but a defeat in either game could leave them requiring favours from elsewhere. In short, it’s all in their own hands.
