Another match in Group J’s round six of the AFCON qualifiers, with Libya hosting Equatorial Guinea. The final group-stage match of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualification will take place at the Martyrs of Benina Stadium
Since Libya is now in last place in the group rankings. This game will actually be played as if it were the final in the group to increase its prospects.
Libya vs Equatorial Guinea
With just one victory in their first five games, the hosts sit in bottom place in Group J’s standings. They were disqualified from the qualifiers because they had only three points during the campaign. With four victories in five games, the visitors are in first place in Group J. With 12 points, they have already qualified for the main event, and a victory in this game would give them the table-top spot.
The hosts must try their luck in the 2025 qualifiers after failing to qualify for the AFCON finals since 2012. Libya stands with fewer chances of proceeding to the next level hence this match is more crucial than any other. Libya has lost 3 recent consecutive matches which has made it hard for the players to hold on for a better display at the pitch.
Equatorial Guinea, which is now atop the standings, has excelled in this competition by earning at least a point in each of its games. Regardless of the outcome of this game, Equatorial Guinea is already assured of easily advancing to the next round with 12 points. They will undoubtedly be more motivated to play for at least one or three points if they continue their unbeaten streak because they will be in the lead in the table.
Equatorial Guinea is in much better shape than Libya in this game, and as a result, it has boosted its capacity to score more goals. This time, when the greatest team in the group plays the team that is performing the worst, it is surely impossible to lose because none of these teams have ever lost a match. However, given that Libya is hosting this match, which is what it needs the most, we anticipate it to hold on for the first half without giving up a goal and without scoring either.
The Mediterranean Knights have lost five of their previous six games across all leagues while going scoreless in four of those contests. They have performed well at home, losing only once in their last six games.
For Nzalang Nacional, this match is merely a formality because they have already qualified for the competition’s group stage. Nevertheless, they will want to end their qualification campaign on a victorious note after winning four straight games in the qualifiers.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
