GABON

Gabon has been impressive so far at the AFCON remaining unbeaten after two group matches. The Panthers defeated Comoros 1-0 in their opening game and followed that up with a 1-1 draw against Ghana to hold on to the second spot in the group.

However, their spirited performance is being overshadowed by the departure of Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nice Midfielder, Mario Lemina who were released by the Gabonese FA to return to their clubs due to complications from COVID-19.

Mario Lemina has since taken to social media to announce his retirement from the National team. 

Despite the controversies in their camp, the Gabonese have vowed to fight to finish their group stage campaign as high as possible.

A win will see them finish top of the table, while a draw will ensure passage to the Round of 16.

MOROCCO 

Morocco are currently top of the log in Group C with a 100% record. The Atlas Lions got off to a great start with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Ghana and quickly followed that up with a 2-0 win over minnows Comoros. That victory effectively sealed qualification into the Round of 16 for the North Africans.

The Moroccans will head into this match in a confident mood, as they are currently on a run of 14 wins in the last 15 games. 

The group leaders will likely rest some of the regulars for the final game of the group to give opportunities to some of the fringe players. But, we expect to see a competitive team Irrespective of the choice of players sent out by Vahid Halihodzic.

The North Africans have the edge in terms of the head-to-head meetings with nine wins and three draws in 18 games.
