Guinea-Bissau vs Sierra Leone Match Preview

Having earned Group A’s second ticket, the hosts have advanced to the finals. After Nigeria (12 points), which tops the leaderboard, Guinea-Bissau is in second place with 10. After making their debut in 2017, they will take part in the fourth Africa Cup of Nations. In the rematch, they successfully restrained Sierra Leone to a 2-2 draw.

Prior to their forthcoming double qualifying match against Burkina Faso and Djibouti for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, Djurtus will use the dead rubber match as a final practice session. November will see the completion of both contests. With their 1-0 away victory over Nigeria in March, Guinea-Bissau’s credentials survived their hardest test in the group.

While Sierra Leone twice drew and once lost, they consistently failed to capitalize on their home-field advantage. However, given that all of their home matches were held outside of the nation for logistical reasons, they may have some justifications. In their final home game, they welcomed Nigeria to Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.

While using the Afcon qualifying final matchday to get the grunt work done, the Leone Stars will shift their focus to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The first match will be played on November 13 in Ethiopia against the Walia Ibex, and the week after that, Sierra Leone will host Egypt.

Sierra Leone has never lost to Guinea-Bissau.
