Burundi defeated visiting Niger 2-0 to get their AFCON qualifying campaign back on track in Bujumbura on Saturday.

They now have three points from two matches after they lost their opening game 3-1 to Senegal.

Niger are also on three points after they pipped Namibia in June.

Senegal and Namibia will do battle on Sunday to give a clearer picture of the group standings.

South Africa-based striker Fiston Abdul Razak gave the home team the lead after 26 minutes, before another South Africa-based star Papy Faty made the game save for Burundi five minutes from time.

Burundi’s next game will be against Namibia at the end of March next year, while Niger face Senegal.
