The Stallions of Burkina Faso equally put up good performances but they lost their chances. Each side tried to impose its own play style but the competition was though as each team wanted to grab the three points of the day. Mali had an opportunity at the 43rd minute when Siaka Bagayoko almost scored the curtain raiser through a free kick but the opportunity was lost. The teams separated at half time on a 0-0 score margin.

On resumption, both sides struggled to have control of the game as they played with more determination. Mali however dominated and had another scoring chance at the 52nd minute through Mamadou Coulibaly which was squandered. Coach Abdoulaye Konate of Mali and Issaka Ouedraogo of Burkina Faso brought in two players each to add fresh blood to their teams but that did not yield much fruits. At the 72nd minute Siaka Bagayoko scored the curtain raiser after he headed a corner kick past goalkeeper Babayoure Aboubacar. Burkina Faso on their part put up a strong fight and Hamed Belem almost scored at the 77th minute. Efforts by Burkina Faso to level scores were futile. At full time the score line was 1-0 in favour of Mali. Mali will play their second game against Cameroon on January 20, 2021 at the Yaounde Omnisports Stadium and Burkina Faso will play against Zimbabwe the same day.
