Bafana Bafana got their Afcon 2019 qualification off to a strong start with a 2-0 away win over Nigeria back in June of last year. That result puts them in a very strong position to guarantee qualification via a top 2 finish in this group but they cannot afford to drop points at home against a side like Libya.
Libya actually top the table having beaten the Seychelles 5-1 in their opening game and they will be desperate to get at least a point out of this visit to South Africa. They are not one of the traditional power houses of African football and these sides have never met in an International match.

South Africa 11/20
Suggested bet: South Africa to win and under 2.5 goals at 18/10.
I can see this being a tight encounter and Libya will not be easy to break down. Bafana do have a few injury problems but I think they have enough quality across the park to win this game although I expect it to be a low scoring affair.
