The World Cup Qualifying - Africa clash between Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone is set to take place at the Stade du 26 Mars on Monday. Both teams will be vying for crucial points to improve their standings in Group A.

This match is particularly significant as both teams are level on points, making the outcome crucial for their World Cup aspirations.

Recent Form

Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso enters this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat against Egypt.

Despite an early setback with two quick goals from Egypt, Lassina Traore managed to pull one back in the 56th minute.

Burkina Faso's recent form has been less than stellar, with the team losing their last four matches across all competitions.

Their defensive weaknesses have been a significant issue, conceding 10 goals in their last five matches.

Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone, on the other hand, comes into this game with renewed confidence after a 2-1 victory over Djibouti.

Curtis Davies opened the scoring, and despite Djibouti equalizing, Augustus Kargbo secured the win with a goal early in the second half.

This victory ended Sierra Leone's seven-match winless streak. Their defence, however, has also been a point of concern, conceding 16 goals in their last seven matches.
