The tournament was initially set to take place in January-February of 2021 but has been pushed back on multiple occasions, now scheduled for 2022.
Here is our simple slip ahead of today's matches.
Guinea-Bissau vs Senegal
Aliou Cisse's Senegal strengthened their hold on top spot in this group courtesy of a 2-0 victory when these two teams met on Wednesday. The Lions of Teranga have an incredible 16 wins and a draw from their last 17 AFCON qualifying matches and they've kept clean sheets in 13 of them. Another win to nil here looks a decent bet.
Bet on Senegal to win at FT
Equatorial Guinea vs Libya
Equatorial Guinea overturned a 2-1 deficit in added time to beat Libya 3-2 when these sides met on Wednesday. Libya has now conceded eight goals in their three group matches and it's hard to back them here, considering how suspect they have looked defensively. Equatorial Guinea is the lowest-ranked team in this section but they play with no expectations and no pressure. They can avoid defeat at worst again here.
Bet on Under 3.5 match goals
Burundi vs Mauritania
Mauritania may have extended their unbeaten start to the 2021 AFCON qualifying tournament with a 1-1 draw when these two nations met on Wednesday, but there was certainly a sense of frustration with the result too, as they had led 1-0 with just ten minutes remaining. Burundi, on the other hand, were very pleased to have picked up their first point of the campaign, courtesy of an excellent free-kick from Saidi Ntibazonkiza. Mauritania paid the price for not taking their chances in that match and the fact that they have scored a total of only three goals in their last nine AFCON qualifying away fixtures suggest that they might well fail to claim maximum points here too. The home team aren’t exactly prolific scorers either, therefore, under 2.5 goals is an option to consider if you are placing a bet.
