Tanzania will need nothing less than all three points to keep their 2014 World Cup aspirations alive when they face Group C leaders Cote d'Ivoire on Sunday.
The Taifa Stars are currently second in the standings, but trail the Ivory Coast by four points, meaning anything less than a win this weekend would leave them out of the running for a place in the final qualifying round.
Tanzania also need to put behind them the 2-1 defeat they suffered to Morocco in last week's qualifying clash, a result which allowed the Lions of the Atlas to climb within one point of second.
The Elephants, though, will prove a huge test for Kim Poulsen's men, having lost just one of their last five matches, while they have won their last two qualifiers 3-0, both times against Gambia.
Sabri Lamouchi's side also know they need only avoid defeat to book their place in the final round of qualifiers, with a group match to spare.
