Rivers United vs Club Africain stats and predictions

As it stands, Club Africain currently lead the CAF Confederation Cup Group C standings with a perfect six points from six. On the other hand, Rivers United are third on the table, with three points. Bearing that in mind, these are our Rivers United vs Club Africain predictions:

Prediction 1: Club Africain to win

We would like to point out that Rivers United suffered a 2-1 loss to Dreams FC in their previous match. They won just two of their last six matches in all competitions, with two draws and two losses.

By comparison, Club Africain have fared a lot better than their opponents; as they are currently on a seven-match winning streak across all competitions. It may interest you to know that these teams met in the group stage of this tournament six years ago, and Club Africain won both of their clashes. All things considered, we are leaning towards the visitors for the victory.

Prediction 2: Club Africain to score first

We've established that Club Africain came out on top the last two times these teams squared off against each other. It's also fair to point out that they opened the scoring in both clashes.

Interestingly, the Tunisian side tend to strike first; as they drew first blood in all of their last seven matches. Keeping in mind that Rivers United conceded first in four of their last six matches, we believe that Club Africain will register the first goal in this game.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

For our final Rivers United vs Club Africain prediction, let's explore the over/under goals market. These teams met twice in the past, and a total of six goals were scored in those encounters.

In the same vein, Rivers United and Club Africain have both been involved in their fair share of high-scoring matches lately. While Rivers United's last three games featured at least three goals, five of Club Africain's last eight matches went north of the 2.5 goal marker. On that note, we should expect the goals to flow in this match.
