Gabon vs Congo DR Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Gabon vs Congo DR is a massive game in one of the most interesting groups. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

There is nothing else to expect from this game but a low scoreline. Check out Gabon's performances to date. The team leads the group and in four matches to date, there have been only three goals total. They are the epitome of a low-scoring team. And their defense is incredible. Congo DR are better in attack but they are the visiting side here.

Match Result Prediction: Gabon to Win

Gabon managed to get three points from this opponent in the previous game and we expect the same here. Gabon have been exceptional defensively and while they are not that good in attack, we have Congo DR on the road here. The visitors have performed terribly on the road and this makes us believe that Gabon will win again.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Gabon

We definitely expect a minimal scoreline here. Gabon do not score a lot of goals and while Congo DR are in bad defensive form, they rarely concede more than 1 goal too. When we compare the Gabon vs Congo DR line ups, there isn't a huge difference between the two teams and it all comes down to form.

Gabon vs Congo DR Team Previews

Gabon Preview

Somehow, Gabon have turned themselves into the top contender for winning this group and it is interesting to see what they will do until the end. The team somehow gets results without scoring goals and they genuinely play very boring football that focuses on defense. You can see that they have conceded a single goal in four matches but they have also scored only twice.

Congo DR Preview

Congo were supposed to be the top team in this group and win it easily but the last couple of years have not been very successful for them. They rarely lose matches but winning has been difficult. They almost do not concede goals but the big problem is that they barely score too. They have to win both remaining games in order to qualify.
