South Africa-Benin: analysis of the match
Over the last six outings in all competitions, Benin has 2 defeats and 4 draws. The last misstep dates back to last October in Morocco, where the Cheetahs were overthrown by the Malagasy Bareas in a friendly (1-2). A starving record which is worrying, at the time of crossing crampons with the South African giant.
For its part, South Africa was disappointingly held by Eswatini (0-0) before drawing against the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire (1-1). With CAN 2023 opening in less than two months, this international break is an opportunity for Hugo Broos and his men to strike hard to send a signal to the Eagles of Mali, opponents of Bafana-Bafana in the African Cup. The Beninese are therefore warned!
