St.Mary’s Kitende stadium will again host an AFCON qualifier after previously the same venue hosted the tie between Uganda and South Sudan  which the Cranes won 1-0 in a heavily contested tie.

Uganda vs Burkina Faso ties have been closely contested in the past with the Stallons having slight claim on the tie with 2 wins compared to the Crane’s 1 in the past 7 ties.

 None of the teams has won away from home.

The Stallion’s last visit to Uganda ended in a 0-0 draw at the Mandela National stadium with Burkina Faso’s Kaboore being sent off in the 90th minute of the match 

The last meeting of the two nations in Burkina Faso was a goalless draw in Ouagadougou.

Only two games have produced more than 2 goals in the previous encounters between the two nations: Uganda’s 2-1 win in the AFCON qualifier in 2014 and a 2-2 draw in Kampala in the world cup qualifier in 2005.

Burkina Faso’s 2-0 home win in the 2006 World Cup qualifier in 2004 was the biggest winning goal margin in this fixture.
