Egypt vs Congo DR

Both of these teams have advanced to the round of 16, but they are yet to secure a victory in the competition following some surprising results during the Africa Cup of Nations group stages. Although Egypt was strongly favored to win Group B, they were not impressive during the group stages, recording just three straight 2-2 ties. The first was a match in which nobody thought the Mambas would have a chance against Mozambique. After that, there was a tie with Ghana and a wild finish to match three against Cape Verde, with two goals scored in stoppage time.

For their part, DR Congo’s group stage experience was quite similar, as they advanced with three draws as well. The Atlas Lions drew 1-1 with Zambia in their first game, and they kept the Moroccans to the same score in the second game because of a pivotal goal by Silas Katompa Mvumpa. That was the only point the team lost in the tournament thus far. In the last group-stage encounter, the Leopards eliminated Tanzania and Zambia from the competition by playing to a draw with Tanzania.

Verdict

In recent months, Congo DR has had difficulty achieving success, and Sebastien Desabre’s team has a reputation for being reticent and playing low-scoring games.

Both teams have yet to win a match in the competition, and if extra time is needed, Egypt may advance in regulation time.

The seven-time AFCON champions, who looked unconvincing in the group stages, will need to do much better if they are to go past a DR Congo team that has progressed greatly in recent years.

Considering Egypt’s three consecutive 2:2 ties in these finals, BTTS must have a chance. In two of their three group-stage matches, Congo also saw BTTS.

Equatorial Guinea vs Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is going to play Guinea for the first time. Equatorial Guinea, who is ranked lower than Guinea, is entering this match on a far stronger run. They have not only advanced to the AFCON knockout stages for the fourth time in a row, but they have also won their last 13 games. Although Juan Micha’s team may wish to downplay their accomplishments thus far, winning a group that included two previous champions is noteworthy. After drawing 1-1 with Nigeria earlier, they crushed the hosts, Ivory Coast, 4-0 in their most recent encounter. Equatorial Guinea, who scored nine goals to top the group stages, will be trying to continue their strong scoring performance here.

When Guinea plays the surprise team of the competition, they should proceed with extreme caution. Losing at this point is the one duck they will also want to dump. Guinea has not won any of their previous six AFCON round of 16 games. Before they even meet Equatorial Guinea, a lot has been written against them. Nonetheless, Syli Nationale will rely on their AFCON experience. Given what Equatorial Guinea has previously accomplished in this competition, its superior pedigree may not mean much in this contest. Although Guinea has AFCON experience, its performance at the tournament—finishing third in their group—raises concerns.

Verdict

Equatorial Guinea performed admirably despite coming from a difficult group. They should feel more confident going into the knockout stages as a result. They have also been playing well lately, being undefeated in their last 13 games and doing well at the AFCON. Guinea had a difficult time in the group stages and also fared poorly in the knockout stages. Given the kind of opposition they are up against, that might come back to haunt them in this situation.
