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

The encounter will be played at the Francistown Sports Complex in Francistown on Tuesday, October 16.

Kick-off is at 19h00 CAT.

The Zebras succumbed to a 3-0 defeat to Burkina Faso in a Group I match which was played in Ouagadougou over the weekend.

The defeat left Botswana placed fourth on the group standings without a single point from three games. They are six points behind third-placed Mauritania.

The Southern African side will be keen to record their maiden win in their qualifying campaign when they host the Stallions.

Meanwhile, Burkina Faso are oozing with confidence having secured a home victory over Botswana.

The win took the Stallions to second place on the group standings with six points from three games. They are only behind leaders, Angola on goal-difference.

The West African side will be eyeing another victory over Botswana which could take them to the top of the standings.
