Expert Betting Tips
Both teams met in the 2008 World Cup qualifier and it was Togo who edged out on (7-2) aggregate.
Togo were denied the world cup ticket on the last day against Senegal, they are a good team with an experienced Portuguese coach with lots of foreign players in their ranks, to go home winning for 1.80 is a great pick.
Togo will be playing at home and that will be an added advantage for them to win at halftime for 2.50.
Both halves under 1.5 goals for 1.78 won't be a bad option.
