[i]By Ganiyu Ayanniyi[/i]

The Bafana Bafana of South Africa have been booked to face the Super Eagles of Nigeria at 2pm today, Saturday, 17th November, 2018 at Johannesburg.

Both aforementioned teams are leading the table of the Group E. Nigeria with 9 points, South Africa with 8 points, Libya with 4 points and Seychelles with 1 point.

The Super Eagles are hoping to win the match for straight qualification because they lost their last match against South Africa 2 goals to nil in 2017 on Nigerian soil.

According to Rohr in Dailypost news, the French-German coach of the Super Eagles thinks the match will be a bit difficult but he hopes for a win or draw.

"We are expecting a difficult match but a good result. We are targeting qualification which means we need at least a point but we go there to win the game as we do always.

”If it is only a draw, it will be enough because we will surely qualify with one point.” said Rohr.

The match is expected to be a tough one for both teams. Nevertheless, there will either be  a win, a lose or a draw.
