It is surprising how much time has passed since the last time these two national teams met. They last played over 17 years ago. Since then, a lot has changed. Both sides have been among the strongest national teams on the continent and right now, both are in incredible forms. They score goals in every single game they play and they hardly lose. We expect at least one goal per team here.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
This is a tough match to predict. We have two absolutely identical teams when it comes to squad strength and recent performances. Congo DR have won all five of their most recent games and they barely conceded a single goal. South Africa have lost a single one in the last five but their defense is slightly weaker. This makes us believe that Congo DR will definitely score and their chances are good for at least a draw.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
This game may end up with a high scoreline but we think that it will be very competitive and close. South Africa concede goals almost every game but they also score a lot. Congo DR have an incredible defense and we don't think they will concede more than once.
