Baxter's charges top Group E with seven points and they could move to 10 with a win over Seychelles on Tuesday

South Africa are strong favourites to beat Seychelles yet again following Saturday's 6-0 win at home. 

While the two teams will be playing in an artificial pitch in the Seychelles, this shouldn't be a problem for Stuart Baxter's men as they have the experience to get the job done.   

A win away from home will solidify their position on the Group E log, but most importantly, they will be in with a good chance to qualify for next year's Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.

Position Missing players
Defender Thapelo Morena (injured)
Midfielder Vincent Pule (injured)
Striker Sibusiso Vilakazi (injured)

Baxter didn't miss the Sibusiso Vilakazi, Vincent Pule and Thapelo Morena in the first leg, and their replacements did a fantastic job at the FNB Stadium. 

Aubrey Modiba, Kamohelo Maboe and Lebo Mothiba all came to the party, and they contributed immensely to the six goals that Bafana scored on the day. 

While they may not be expected to hit another six past Seychelles, a high scoring game will depend on how Bafana line-up for this returning leg. 

Baxter could be tempted to give a few of his players who didn't play in the first match a chance. 

The likes of Teboho Mokoena and Lebo Phiri could be given some minutes, while Dino Ndlovu is also expected to get some time after netting his first Bafana goal on Saturday.       

Potential Bafana XI: Khune, Mphahlele, Hlanti, Hlatshwayo, Mkhwanazi, Furman, Mokotjo, Modiba, Maboe, Tau, Mothiba .
