Only a point separates these two sides ahead of a mouthwatering 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Khartoum on Sunday, with the winner all but securing a spot in the finals.

The hosts come into this clash on the back of a 2-0 victory away to Sao Tome and Principe, with goals in each half from Mohammed Abdel-Rahman and Saifeldin Malik Bakhit giving them all three points.

South Africa on the other hand, had to settle for a 1-1 draw against the Black Stars of Ghana, leaving both sides level on 10 points after five rounds of matches.

Sudan are in third place with 9 points, whilst Sao Tome and Principe remain at the tail end after a dismal campaign that has seen them not even record a single point.

While a draw will be enough for the visitors, Sudan need all three points to book their place at the finals which will be held in Cameroon.
