Cape Town - In a 24-hour poll, football fanatics reckon that Bafana Bafana will come out victorious in their 2018 Soccer World Cup qualifier first leg clash against Angola.

Conducted on Sport24's official Twitter account, one particular follower - @lekoko1984 - hopped on the fence regarding the outcome as he stated that a "draw" will be the final result at the Ombaka National Stadium on Friday.

@LesegoDibaks said: "I don't see Bafana winning because we still using same system. When a player score 2 goals they pick him eish!"

However, the majority of the rest remained optimistic about Bafana's chances as they hope to be cheering on The Boys when the FIFA spectacle takes place in Russia in 2018.

@TLMache said: "I think we may nick it away from home. Pretty solid setup."

@Lilly_64200 went on to say that she has "faith" that Bafana will have the advantage in the second leg.

At the end of the 24-hour poll, Bafana had 64% of the vote, while Angola received 36%.
