Rwanda and South Africa are set for a pivotal clash in their CAF 2026 World Cup qualifying match at Stade Huye on Tuesday, both aiming to secure vital points.

In their previous qualifying outing, Rwanda settled for a draw, while South Africa clinched a win, setting the stage for an intense encounter.

South Africa narrowly secured victory against Benin Republic at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, leading 2-0 at halftime through Percy Tau and Khuliso Mudau’s goals before holding off a late comeback attempt by Steve Mounie.

Despite that, Bafana Bafana had been on an impressive run, with just one loss in their last 17 games across all competitions, preparing to face a team significantly lower in the FIFA rankings.

Rwanda, positioned 76 places below their opponents in the FIFA rankings, faced a goalless draw against Zimbabwe in their Group C opener, despite dominating possession and territory.

The Amavubi Wasps haven’t secured a win in six games this year, split evenly between losses and draws. With their home winless streak extending over 18 months, Rwanda is determined to overturn their fortunes and kickstart their World Cup qualifying campaign with a victory in front of their supporters.

There’s uncertainty over Bonheur Mugisha’s availability after he suffered an injury scare during the match against Zimbabwe in the previous outing.

If Mugisha is unable to play, Olivier Niyonzima is likely to step in for his first start in two months.

Percy Tau delivered an outstanding performance for South Africa in their victory against Benin and will be eager to replicate that form.

Despite an intense schedule, the 31-year-old goalkeeper Ronwen Williams is set to maintain his position in goal for the visitors, having played four games in the last 18 days.
