Guinea will bank on their home ground advantage when they host Libya in their third 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Thursday.

The Syli Nationale will want to bag their first win in Group A after losing their first two matches to Tunisia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Losing 2-1 to the Leopards of Congo and the Eagles of Carthage has somewhat dented their hopes of reaching Russia come 2018.

However, as hosts they will want ensure they use their home advantage and retain the full three points.

Coach Kanfory Bangoura's troops now occupy the third spot in the group with zero points, having conceded four goals.

On the other hand, the Mediterranean Knights are also under pressure to claim their maiden win in their qualifying campaign.

They are fresh from a 4-0 loss against Florent Ibenge's DRC and a 1-0 defeat to Tunisia, but will now want to stun their hosts.

Sitting at the bottom of the table means coach Jalal Damja's men have a tough assignment heading to Conakry.

The encounter will be staged at the Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry, getting underway at 19:00 (CAT) on Thursday.
