24/01 Daily Predictions: Back Mali and South Africa win in AFCON 2023

Betting Tips

Match Day 3 of a hotly contested Group E at AFCON 2023 will feature a match between South Africa and Tunisia.  South Africa is ranked third in this game, while Tunisia is at the bottom. Both teams have yet to guarantee their spots in the following round. South Africa will easily advance with a victory, while Tunisia, which has already gained a point, finds it more difficult.

South Africa vs Tunisia

Match Day 2 saw South Africa overcome Namibia 4-0 after losing to Mali on the first day of play. After three games without a victory, it was a delightful way to put an end to their problems. A 4-0 victory will boost South Africa’s confidence, as they also failed to score in those three games. South Africa doesn’t have a particularly strong record against Tunisia going into a match where they’ll need to at least avoid dropping points. The last two games they played against Tunisia ended in losses. South Africa has lost its last three matches against Tunisia. These were all AFCON matches and South Africa is looking to snap their duck.

Although their previous meeting was in 2008, Tunisia will be relying on their recent winning streak over South Africa. Tunisia has not lost in three games against South Africa. They still have to perform better than they did in their most recent games, though. On the first match day, they had trouble breaking down Namibia and ultimately conceded late, losing 1-0. On Match Day 2, Tunisia once again gave up the first goal against Mali, but this time they equalized to end the match 1-1. The Carthage Eagles, who need to win this game, will be under the greatest pressure going into it. Tunisia will not be assured a spot in the round of 16, even if they win.

Verdict

This will be a close game in which both sides are trying to win and keep their backlines intact to avoid defeat. The majority of their most recent AFCON games have likewise been losses. It will also be anticipated that they will both proceed cautiously.  The four goals South Africa scored against Namibia are their only goals from the previous four games. However, in the preceding five games, Tunisia managed just four goals. For this draw, it might be prudent to wager under 2.5 goals.

Namibia vs Mali

Namibia shocked favorites Tunisia 1-0 to start their AFCON campaign. They will seek to build on that victory, which was their first-ever AFCON victory. They did, however, lose to their neighbors, South Africa, 4-0, before this match. They held off Tunisia until the very end, but when it came to South Africa, it was all over by halftime. They were behind 3-0 versus South Africa after the first forty-five minutes of play. Hardly any resistance was made by Namibia. That loss also put a stop to their streak of three consecutive games without a loss and clean sheets. They had not scored in any of their previous five games.

Lassine Sinayoko gave Mali an early lead against Tunisia for the second straight game. Mali, meanwhile, was unable to hold on for a second victory in the group and guarantee a spot in the following round. Mali, who entered the match with four points, will just need a draw to guarantee a spot in the round of 16. But a victory will guarantee them first place and most likely an easier opponent in the following round. Mali’s nine-game winning streak came to an end in the draw against Tunisia.

Verdict

Namibia is not very strong going into this match, particularly at the AFCON. This will not be an easy one, even though they hope to win and make it to the knockout stages for the first time. Mali is almost there, but they won’t want to take any chances; therefore, we anticipate them to make a solid first impression. Mali will be the obvious favorite given the two countries’ recent results.
