Gambia vs Congo Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Gambia vs Congo is an interesting match that will decide who comes second in the group. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

We have an interesting game on our hands between the 2nd and 3rd teams in this group. There is a 3-point difference between them as Congo are 3rd and Gambia 2nd. If Congo win here, they can qualify ahead too. However, their current form is terrible and they barely score goals overall. Gambia should be the better team here and we do not expect them to concede goals.

Match Result Prediction: Gambia to Win

Gambia started the qualifications in a terrible way but managed to step up their game and win against South Sudan and Mali. They need the draw in this game to qualify ahead. They managed to lose against Congo last time, which was a surprise, and we do not think that it will happen again. Gambia seem to be in a much stronger form right now. They are a strong home side and lost a single game in the last ten home matches.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Gambia

Gambia rarely score more than one goal. They did it in three games out of the last ten at home. Almost every win they have had has been a 1-0 victory. We expect the same against Congo, who will do their best not to lose here. When we compare the Gambia vs Congo line ups, we think that the hosts have a slight advantage on paper. Nevertheless, this should be a very close game and we do not expect too much action.

Gambia vs Congo Team Previews

Gambia Preview

Gambia need a point to seal that qualification and we do not think that they will afford the defeat against Congo at home. They failed against them last time but this was a different time. Gambia are a solid host and their defense is not bad at all. They have seven wins in the last ten home matches in all competitions, even those when they were just a symbolic host.

Congo Preview

Congo need a wonder to continue ahead. They need to win with a solid scoreline and no other result will get them that second place. They play well when they are the host but on the road, it is a completely different story. They won the last game against South Sudan but before that, they had seven consecutive defeats, even against significantly weaker national teams than Gambia.
