With our match prediction and odds comparison for Sudan vs. Guinea-Bissau you are guaranteed to get all the important facts and details for this fixture. First and foremost, we will take a close look at the teams' recent performances.
This is the opening match for both teams from Group D in this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations. Sudan and Guinea-Bissau are not expected to make it out of this group that also includes Nigeria and Egypt. This adds an extra importance to the game as a win here could give either team a springboard on which to try and secure a qualification berth at the expense of one of the two giants in the group. The two teams already met twice in November last year with Guinea Bissau winning 4-2 followed by a 0-0 draw.
Sudan are considered one of the surprise teams to qualify for this year’s edition of the Africa Cup of Nations. They are ranked 33 in Africa and 125 in world FIFA rankings. They qualified after finishing 2nd behind Ghana in their qualifying group and ahead of the higher raked South Africa. The highlight of their campaign was beating South Africa 2-0 in the final qualifying game that was to decide who between the two proceeds to this tournament.
Nevertheless, Sudan have not been performing well in recent games. They had a poor run in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers before another dismal performance in the recent FIFA Arab Cup (P3 L3). They have now gone winless in their last 10 games (D3 L7) and have scored only 2 goals in their last 5 matches. It will take much effort to turn things around and get a result against a team that they have twice failed to beat barely 2 months ago.
Guinea-Bissau also managed to secure qualification for this tournament in their final match of the campaign when they beat Congo 3-0. This gave them a total of 9 points from 6 games, finishing 1 point ahead of Congo and 5 behind group winners Senegal. Nevertheless, their World Cup qualification campaign ended after 2 heavy defeats to eventual group winners Morocco and 2 barren draws in their last 2 matches.
Guinea-Bissau beat Sudan 4-2 followed by a 2-2 draw in November last year. These results should give them confidence going into this match as favorites. They have to ensure they get maximum points against Sudan because, on paper, it looks like the easiest game in the group before Guinea-Bissau tackle Nigeria and Egypt in the same group. This is their 3rd consecutive Africa Cup of Nations appearance and they are yet to register a win.
