Bafana’s good record against Congo

Premiership

ALSO READ: History favours Bafana

The Red Devils are leading Group A of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with six points from two matches, while Bafana are second on the table with four points from as many matches.

A win for the South Africans will take them to top of the standings with seven points and judging by past results between the two countries, it is not mission impossible for Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba’s boys.

Interestingly, the first ever meeting between South Africa and Congo was in October 1992, a World Cup qualifier for USA ’94 with Mashaba as the coach.
