Mali vs Congo Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (4/06/2022)

Mali will face Congo in their opening fixture of the qualifications for the Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday.

Mali vs Congo: Top Free Betting Tips

Mali are one of the top national teams in Africa and the main contender to win this group although Congo might have something to say about this.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

As mentioned above, Mali are one of the top sides in Africa and their home performances, in particular, have been incredible over the past few years. They rarely concede goals and they are also not a high-scoring squad either. We expect this match to have goals only from them but not more than 1 or 2. Congo have been having issues over the past couple of years and a single win on the road in this period.

Match Result – Mali

We all expected Mali to finish much higher in the last Africa Cup of Nations than the 1/8 final position they reached. The team has been solid for years and will be motivated to win its qualifications group once again. Especially after failing to qualify for the World Cup. Congo have not won a single match since last June and most of those were official games and World Cup qualifiers. They are not in shape and we expect Mali to take the three points here.

Both Teams To Score – No

While Congo will certainly have some chances to score, Mali's defense is one of the best in Africa right now. They conceded a goal in only two matches in which they were the acting hosts over their last 10 fixtures from this and the previous year. It is extremely hard for any team to score against them and we expect a clean sheet at the start of the qualifications.

Mali vs Congo: Form, Recent Games, and News

Mali Preview

Mali have a solid squad although individually, their players cannot compare to sides like Algeria or Egypt, or Senegal, for example. Several of their key players perform in elite European leagues like for example in Belgium. Overall, their chemistry is good and the team has great potential. All they need is to win this easy group and we can expect some great achievements in the next AFC.

Congo Preview

Congo's squad is on about the same level as individual players as Mali's, although a lot of them play in Europe. The difference is that most of the players perform in leagues in Eastern Europe that cannot compare to the top tier leagues of the West. For example, multiple players perform in Bulgaria and Serbia. They have the potential but they need better coaching and a better defense, for certain.
