Nicknamed Barea, Madagascar, will be motivated by their previous 2-1 win over Lesotho on Monday afternoon and the encounter against Tanzania could be a step closer to a quarter-final qualification.

Madagascar moved to the top of their COSAFA Cup 2015 Group B after their win and would like to see their first appearance in the regional showpiece since 2008 going well.

Led by coach Frank Rajaonarisamba, they will hope to do well in this match and better their Cosafa cup run as they last finished in the fourth place in 2008 with the win over Tanzanians reigniting some hope in their camp.

The coach will pin his hopes on key players such as Lantonirina Rabehasinmbola and Sarivahy Vombola who will have to be on target once again.

Both Rabehasinmbola and Vombola were on target in their opening tie.

However, looking at the Taifa Stars, they lost to Swaziland and the second match grants them an opportunity bag the three points and redeem themselves.

In the clash against Isihlangu Somnikati, they lost concentration and conceded towards the first stanza and will have to rectify such errors.

Mentored by Maart Nooij, the Dutchman will have to ensure his charges are in a tip top form coming to this one as they’re also eyeing to progress through to the quarters.

Key players upfront such as Mrisho Ngasa and John Bocco will need to bring their scoring boots and open up the Barea defence.
