South Sudan will be hoping to bounce back and beat Djibouti when they meet in the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers Play-off.

The Shoremen of the Red Sea will be out to seek revenge and ensure they boost their chances of reaching the group stages.

Losing 2-0 away last Wednesday means they will now have to score three goals and remain tight at the back to ensure they don't concede.

The encounter is set to be in front of their home crowds which will come as a huge boost for them as they want to finish the job.

Looking at the Falcons of Jediane, Djibouti will face an uphill battle against their hosts, but the scoreline puts them as favourites to progress to the group stages of the Afcon qualifiers.

Although a 2-0 lead can be overturned, Djibouti will now push to score an away goal on Tuesday night and put more pressure on their hosts.

The winner of the two leg tie is set to qualify and join Group C where Mali, Gabon and Burundi are waiting.

The match will be staged on Tuesday, at Juba Stadium in South Sudan.
