Congo DR vs Gabon: Top Free Betting Tips

Both national teams failed to qualify for the World Cup this year and they have to focus all their attention to the Africa Cup of Nations.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

D.R. Congo and Gabon are nowhere near the top African national teams but they have the ability to score goals. Especially in their most recent matches from the start of this year, we saw some good performances in terms of attacking football from both sides. We expect to see them score goals and we expect an over 2.5. Gabon will be motivated to qualify after a quite successful AFC 2022 in January.

Match Result – D.R. Congo

D.R. Congo are the better team overall and we expect them to win against Gabon. The two national teams were in the same group in the previous qualifications for the last Africa Cup of Nations and curiously, Congo failed to win on both instances. We expect a better performance in the new qualifications here and at least in this first game – because Gabon have been struggling in games away from home.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Earlier, we mentioned that both teams have been doing good offensively and can score goals. We expect to see at least one goal per team and obviously, we expect at least two from D.R. Congo. Gabon have been having serious problems in away games and only won a single one in their last 10. Nevertheless, they managed to score a goal in most of those games, some of which against serious national teams like Egypt and Burkina Faso.

D.R. Congo Preview

D.R. Congo has one of the better squads when it comes to players that perform on the highest level. Of course, not their entire team is well known but certain names perform in England, for example. Yoane Wissa is a forward for Brentford and one of their top scorers. Theo Bongonda plays for Genk, Cedric Bakambu plays as a forward for Marseille, and Meschak Elia plays for Young Boys. Overall, their offense is very strong.

Gabon Preview

Gabon's national team squad also includes some players that perform in Europe's top leagues – most notably, in France. Mario Lemina is a midfielder for Nice, Denis Bouanga plays for Saint-Etienne, and Jim Allevinah plays for Clermont. Their squad has a good overall level and could perhaps even contest for the second seed in this group.
