DR Congo Vs Guinea: AFCON 2023 Quarter-final (3 - 1) On 2nd February 2024 by Sauter: 12:28pm On Jan 31
Head-to-Head
DR Congo vs Guinea Quarter-final previews note that the DRC are on a four-game unbeaten streak vs Guinea, in all competitions. These sides last met in 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying, where DR Congo picked up 2-1 and 3-1 wins over Guinea. This is just the third-ever meeting in the Africa Cup of Nations and the first since 2004. Here, DRC are going for their first win in AFCON over Guinea.

DRC Successfully Avoiding Defeat
While DR Congo still don’t have a 90-minute win in this edition of the Africa Cup of Nations, they have successfully avoided defeat in all of their matches.

They’ve drawn all four of their matches so far and most impressively managed to hold tournament favorites Morocco to a 1-1 draw in the group stage. Silas picked an excellent time to score his first goal for DR Congo, as he found the net for a 76th minute equalizer
DRC also drew vs Zambia and Tanzania in the group stage to finish in second place in Group F. In the round of 16, DR Congo went up against Egypt, and Meschak Elia opened up the scoring for the Leopards.

DR Congo conceded a penalty late in the first half, which Egypt’s Mostafa Mohamed converted. After 120 grueling minutes, the match went into penalties, and DR Congo goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi scored the winning kick in the shootout.

The African Cup odds currently price the Leopards at +2000 to win their third AFCON title. They do have a talented roster, and the DR Congo frontline is rather strong. Although they’ve only found the net three times in four games, Cedric Bakambu, Yoane Wissa, Elia, Simon Banza, and Silas are all capable of putting the ball in the back of the net.

Guinea Survive Round of 16
Guinea have never qualified for a FIFA World Cup and have not made an Africa Cup of Nations Semifinal since 1976. Despite losing twice to Egypt in Africa Cup of Nations qualification, Guinea finished second in Group D to advance to the final tournament.

Guinea finished 1-1-1 in the group stage and finished in third place in Group D. The “National Elephants” drew 1-1 vs Cameroon, defeated Gambia 1-0 and lost 2-0 to Senegal.

As one of the top four third-placed teams, Guinea advanced to the round of 16, where they took on Equatorial Guinea. Equatorial Guinea went down to ten men early in the second half but ended up winning a penalty. AFCON leading scorer Emilio Nsue hit the post, and Mohamed Bayo scored a stoppage-time winner for Guinea.

Bayo, who plays for Le Havre in Ligue 1, has scored two of Guinea’s three goals at AFCON. Guinea do also have prolific striker Serhou Guirassy, who has taken the Bundesliga by storm this season. However, he’s made just two appearances in four AFCON matches so far. Expect him to play a role on Friday.

That Guinean defender is a clown. He had all the time to clear the ball or confidently control it...yet he stood there like a pillar of salt calling the goal keeper to leave his goal line and come pick up🙄 🤔
Worse case could have been the goalie fouling the Congolese and penalty....very silly option there

Why do I have this feeling that the Congolese are low-keyed adopting our template against Cameroon...
I think with their energy and the pressing so far...they're likely to draw the first blood...unless they're caught on a fast break by the Guineans

Someone made predictions, you make your own too na. In fact I am making one on your behalf right now.

I said earlier we will win Angola and we did.
We will beat anybody that comes our way and face anybody that comes our way in the final and win the cup.
We will win the opponents, win the ball and win the cup. This falseprophet1 has seen grin
