For this preview, we will turn the spotlight on Cyberbet and Paripesa Bonus for our AFCON 2021 betting predictions today.

GAMBIA

Debutants Gambia got their maiden AFCON campaign onto a perfect start as they picked up a narrow 1-0 win over a plucky Mauritania side when the two teams met in the group opener on Wednesday. Ablie Jallow scored the only goal just 10 minutes into the game and they held on to the precious lead until the end.

They had a memorable qualifying campaign where they finished top of Group D level on points with runners up Gabon, but with a better goal difference.

Coach Tom Saintfiet will be looking to build on the excellent defensive shift they put up on opening day against the Malians that have been a regular in this competition.

MALI

Mali, despite playing second fiddle for most of the game, saw off Tunisia 1-0 in a chaotic and controversy-filled opener at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium on Wednesday. Ibrahima Kone converted a 48th-minute penalty but the match plunged into confusion at the end with the referee blowing the full-time whistle in the 85th and then the 89th minute of the game.

That aside, Les Aigles have been in superb form, unbeaten in their last seven straight games (6W, 1D), a run that has seen them book a place in the 2022 World Cup playoffs after they finished top of Group E qualifiers with an unbeaten record.

A win here will certainly earn them a place in the round of 16 and that is what they will be gunning for.

GAMBIA VS MALI PREDICTIONS

Both sides will be motivated to go for a win here as that will almost guarantee qualification to the round of 16. Mali are certainly the more experienced and superior team here and we expect them to dominate the proceedings and have the lion’s share of the possession. By extension, this means they are the likelier team to get more corners in this game as they will pitch their tent longer in the Gambian final third. Paripesa has priced this option @ 1.62 and we feel their great value in picking this as our initial betting tip today.




Mali’s terrific run leading up to the tournament has been marked by their ability to unlock the deadlock and then hold onto the advantage. They have scored the opening goal in their last five games (all wins) and went on to maintain clean sheets in these games. We fancy them to draw the first blood here too @ 1.54 with Cyberbet for our final call here.
