Super Falcons vs Cape Verde stats and predictions

It's important to point out that this is a two-legged tie, and these teams will meet once more on the 5th of December. Bearing that in mind, these are our predictions for this game.

Prediction 1: Super Falcons to win

The Super Falcons have been on an impressive run these past few months; they reached the knockout stages of the FIFA Women's World Cup, where they held their own against eventual finalists England, losing on penalties.

Interestingly, Randy Waldrum‘s side won five of their last nine matches, with three draws and a loss. Compared to the opponents they faced in that stretch, Cape Verde should be an easier nut to crack.

Taking into account that the Super Falcons also have the advantage of playing at home, we are fairly confident that they'll come out on top when it's all said and done.

Prediction 2: One team to keep a clean sheet

Our next Super Falcons vs Cape Verde prediction is on the ‘both teams to score' market. We've already established that Randy Waldrum's side lost just once in their last nine matches in all competitions. It may also interest you to know that they kept six clean sheets in that stretch.

In fact, most of the Super Falcons' matches have been one-sided in goal-scoring terms; as both teams managed to score in just three of their last 12 games. On that note, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

In spite of our ‘BTST – No' prediction, we believe that there will be at least three goals scored in this match. For one, the Super Falcons are coming off a comfortable 4-0 victory over Ethiopia.

Similarly, Cape Verde have been involved in a few high-scoring matches these past few months. The visitors' most recent game was a five-goal thriller, and their last three matches went above the 2.5 goal line. For this reason, we should expect the goals to flow in this game.
