Togo VS Gabon Preview
Gabon and Congo meet in the second round of the African Cup of Nations Group A. Gabon leads the group with 3 points, Congo has 1. Burkina Faso and Equatorial Guinea are also in the group.
Gabon will try to repeat the performance in the 2-0 win vs. Burkina Faso and assure qualification before the last round of the group. Gabon has a very solid team led by Dortmund star Aubameyang (who scored vs. Burkina Faso) … but also an all around balanced squad with players from good teams in Europe and can really do some damage in this tournament. They qualified from the first place in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers ahead of Angola and Burkina Faso. Gabon has no injuries or suspensions and I could bet they will field the same lineup that won in the first match … that is what`s expected from the coach.
Congo qualified second in a group with South Africa and Nigeria, knocking out the reigning champions from the competition … a great achievement, but Congo failed to win what should have been an accessible game vs. Equatorial Guinea in their first match here … finishing tied 1-1. Congo maybe deserved the three points, but they did not play great football. They are far from the quality of Gabon but do have a couple of good players from France and Almeria’s Bifouma. Congo has a full squad available for this game.
I am a big fan of this Gabon team, one of the few complete and reliable teams in this tournament in my opinion. They are in good form, are well coached, organized and also have the star power to make the difference with Aubameyang … showed a top class display vs. Burkina Faso and will likely do it again. They like counterattacking football and I think they will get some chances to show their speed vs. a Congo team that will not sit back for the whole match. My tip will be Gabon to win … they have all the arguments on their side, including quality and consistency … and it’s only natural that the odds on this bet are dropping a bit at the moment. Correct score prediction: Gabon – Congo 2-0.
