WINDHOEK, 13 JUN (NAMPA) - Swaziland and Seychelles square up in their second Group A games of the 2016 Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) Castle Cup at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek on Monday.
Swaziland's Sihlangu Semnikati beat the Seychelles Pirates twice in two Cosafa Cup encounters in 2008 and 2009.
Neither team has won the Cosafa Cup since their entrance into the competition in 1997 (Swaziland) and 2005 (Seychelles).
Cosafa Cup history shows Seychelles has won only one game against Mauritius in 2008, lost 12, and drew three games.
Swaziland has reached the semi-finals on three occasions in 1999, 2002 and 2003. Since 1997, it played 31 matches, won 11, drew eight and lost 12.
In their opening encounter on Saturday, Seychelles was edged out 1-0 by Madagascar's Berea and is now bottom of Group A.
Swaziland gained one point on the same day after a 2-2 draw against Zimbabwe.
