4 August 2019 – Monday (5 August 2019) will see the final round of matches in Groups A and C in the COSAFA Women’s Championship.

Banyana Banyana need just a point against Madagascar at the Wolfson Stadium (12h45 kick-off; 10h45 GMT) to secure top spot in the pool and a place in the semifinals.

They will be without skipper Janine van Wyk, who has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with a knee injury picked up in Friday’s 3-1 win over Malawi.

If Madagascar can grab a victory, and Malawi defeat Comoros Islands at the Gelvandale Stadium (12h45; 10h45 GMT) as expected, it would leave all three sides on six points and time for the calculators to determine which side advances.

Only the top team in each pool and the best-placed runner-up move to the semifinals.
Group C will also conclude as Zimbabwe and Eswatini (15h30; 13h30 GMT) battle it out for top spot in the pool and a semifinal place at the Wolfson Stadium.

Zimbabwe will need just a draw given their superior goal-difference, but it is a tough game to call with both sides in form.

At the same time, Angola and Mozambique will play at the Gelvandale Stadium to avoid the wooden spoon in the pool.
