Burkina Faso will face off with Botswana in the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualification Group I match.

The encounter will be played at the Stade du 4 Août in Ouagadougou on Saturday, October 13.

Kick-off is at 20h00 CAT.

The Stallions suffered a 2-0 defeat to Mauritania away in their previous 2019 AFCON qualifier last month.

It was Burkina Faso's third defeat in their last five matches in all competitions.

The West African side will be targeting nothing but a win against a struggling Botswana side.

Meanwhile, Botswana suffered a 1-0 defeat to Angola away in their previous 2019 AFCON qualifier last month.

This was the Zebras' second successive defeat in all competitions having lost to South Africa, before facing Angola.

The Southern African side will be hoping to stun a much-fancied Burkina Faso side.
