MALI

Mali have been perennial faces at the continental showpiece, but they are yet to make their presence count at the Continent’s most prestigious tournament. They will be hoping that they change the narrative this time around.

The West Africans got started this year’s AFCON on a good note with a hard-fought win over Tunisia via a lone goal scored by Ibrahim’s Kone from the Penalty spot.

Mali followed that up with a 1-1 draw against debutants Gambia in Limbe, before a comfortable 2-0 win over Mauritania in their final group game.

Mohamed Magassouba’s team will be looking for their first win in the knock out stages for the first time since 2013 when dumped out South Africa on Penalties, after a 1-1 draw.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA 

The Equatoguineans have had an amazing run in Cameroon, with two wins to their name already. They amassed six points from three group games to finish second in Group E behind the Ivory Coast.

The National Thunders opened their campaign at the AFCON with a 1-0 loss to Ivory Coast, before stunning defending champions, Algeria 1-0 in an impressive manner.

In their last match of the group stage, Juan Mocha’s men secured a 1-0 win to wrap up the group stage and keep a date with Mali.

They will be pumped up for this clash, as they have only lost once in their last eight games. They earned five wins and two draws in that time.

MALI VS EQUATORIAL GUINEA BETTING TIPS

Ordinarily, Mali would have gone into this game as favourites, but the Nzalang Nacional have shown they are quite capable of causing an upset.

However, the Malians will be banking on experience and a very good form in the Group stage to get past their opponents. 

Ibrahim’s Kone has scored in all of Mali’s three games and he is expected to lead the attack again even with the availability of Moussa Djenepo. Kone is expected to have another showing and has yet another chance to score, given the fact that he is on penalty duties. Therefore, we back Ibrahim Kone to score anytime at 2.30 on Paripesa.

Despite the impressive performance of Equatorial Guinea, the smart money will still be on Mali to progress and they will most likely do it within the regulation time. Hence, we reckon a Draw No bet in favour of Mali is a good betting option, and we are backing Mali Draw No Bet at 1.20 on Bet365.
