There will be everything to play for when Benin host Togo in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Stade de l'Amitié in Cotonou on Sunday.
Kick-off is at 17h00 CAT.
The two nations will be involved in a straight shootout as they aim to join Group D rivals Algeria at this year's showpiece, set to be staged in Egypt.
A draw will be enough for hosts Benin to book their place at a fourth AFCON tournament in their history, while Togo need nothing but a win if they are to advance to a ninth continental competition.
Algeria had already booked their ticket to Egypt late last year and the North African's duly eliminated the fourth country in the group - Gambia - from AFCON contention with a 1-1 draw in Blida on Friday.
This ultimately leaves the Squirrels and Sparrow-hawks in a head-to-head tussle for the second qualifying spot in the group. The reverse fixture in Lome ended in a goalless draw and there will be little to separate the teams once more this weekend.
