Angola Prediction – Can Angola secure top two finish?

Angola sit in 3rd place in Group E with 2 points to their name so far in this competition following back-to-back draws with Tunisia and Mauritania.

They shared the points with Tunisia in a 1-1 draw in their opening group match which was followed by a 0-0 stalemate with Mauritania.

With their final group match being against group leaders, Mali, Angola have arguably the hardest job of all four teams in this final round.

Nevertheless, Angola bring a 5-match unbeaten run into this match having secured three wins and two draws in recent times.

Wins against Burkina Faso, Botswana and Guinea-Bissau along with the two draws in this year’s Africa Cup of Nations should bring them confidence for this clash.

Indeed, Angola have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches overall, which was a 1-0 loss to Mauritania in last year’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

In the previous two encounters against Mali, Angola have drawn 4-4 and lost 4-0 to tonight’s opponents.

Mali Prediction – Can Mali hold onto top spot?

The short answer to the sub-heading is they may very well do – Mali have started their Africa Cup of Nations campaign in positive fashion.

An emphatic 4-1 win over Mauritania was followed up with a solid point in a 1-1 draw with Tunisia, which has resulted in Mali heading Group E with 4 points to their name.

Mali will be keen however, to grab all three points here to make absolutely sure of their place in the quarter-finals and recent form has been fairly reliable.

They’ve suffered just 2 defeats out of their last 14 matches in all competitions, and includes recent wins against Gabon, South Sudan and Mauritania.

A word of caution though – 8 of Mali’s last 14 matches have resulted in draws, and they’ll be up against an Angolan outfit who have drawn their two group matches so far.

Therefore, keeping the draw on-side in this clash looks the safest play with a lean towards Mali as they’ve ,lost just 3 of their last 13 away from home.

These last 13 away matches also include 8 stalemates, so this only confirms our pick here.


Key-Facts – Angola v Mali

  • Angola have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches overall
  • Mali have lost just 2 out of their last 14 matches in all competitions
  • There have been 2 previous meetings; a 4-0 win for Mali and a 4-4 draw


Betting Tips Verdict

Angola will need to show more attacking intent in this clash while Mali should just about edge this one – back Mali with the draw no bet option.
