Windhoek-The Brave Warriors are sitting second on the AFCON qualifier table behind Guinea Bissau, because the West African side have a better overall head-to-head record.
Guinea Bissau beat Namibia by one goal in January last year, which gave them the advantage over Namibia, although both teams are on equal points.
If Namibia beat their opponents with a better goal difference now, then Namibia will qualify irrespective of what happens in the other game.
On the other hand, the Namibian team does have a better head-to-head record against Mozambique by beating that country at home and away.
If the Warriors beat Guinea Bissau and have the head-to-head record in their favour, they will qualify with a game to spare.
In order for Namibia to have a better head to head record against the Guinea Bissau they need to win the Saturday game by two clear goals.
That will mean that Namibia will eliminate Guinea Bissau and Mozambique if they happen to be on equal points.
With two teams to qualify from Group K, Namibia don’t need to worry about what Zambia can to them, because if they lose away to Zambia, the Chipolopolos will be the only team with a better head-to-head record against them.
If three of the four countries in group K are tight on points, then Namibia will qualify as one of the two.
