The upcoming clash between Lesotho and Rwanda in the CAF World Cup qualifiers promises to be an intriguing encounter. Taking place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday evening, this match is crucial for both teams as they aim to strengthen their positions in Group C.

Lesotho, currently leading the group, will technically play a home match in South Africa due to stadium standard issues in their home country.

Current Form

Lesotho

Lesotho has had a surprising run in the qualifiers. They are unbeaten so far, with one win and two draws, placing them at the top of Group C.

Their recent 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe was a significant boost, with goals from Rethabile Rasethuntsa and Thabantso Jane.

Under the guidance of Leslie Notsi, Lesotho's attack has been revitalized, showing impressive form in recent matches.

Rwanda

Rwanda, ranked 18 places above Lesotho, has also shown strong form in the qualifiers.

Despite a recent 1-0 loss to Benin, which ended their unbeaten streak, the Wasps have displayed a solid defence, keeping clean sheets in their previous four matches.

Coach Torsten Spittler will be keen to bounce back from this setback and secure his first away victory since taking over in November.
