Mali vs Equatorial Guinea Predictions and Betting Tips

Mali and Equatorial Guinea lock horns in the AFCON Round of 26 this Wednesday with both sides eyeing a spot in the quarterfinals. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.

Mali head into this game unbeaten in four meetings against Equatorial Guinea, managing three wins in those four games. Would we see them pick up yet another win to secure progression in Cameroon ?

Mali looking to continue blissful run

Mali headed into this tournament having won all of their last four competitive games and although they were on the losing side of things against Malawi in their pre-tournament, we still expected them to give a good account of themselves in the Africa Cup on Nations. Taking into account their group stage display, they've done more than that with The Eagles topping their group with seven points from a possible nine. Edging a side like Tunisia in their group would certainly boost their morale ahead of this game and although it gets tougher from here on out, they look like a side that could pull off shock victories in Cameroon.

Equatorial Guinea defied all odds in the group stage, beating the defending champions Algeria on Matchday two to effectively knock them out of the competition. They followed it up with a 1-0 victory against Sierra Leone on the final round of games, edging their opponents with the aid of a Pablo Garnet first-half strike. Equatorial Guinea would be proud of their results so far but do they have what it takes to secure progression to the quarterfinals against a side they've struggled to beat in the last four meetings.

Mali vs Equatorial Guinea Prediction: 1-0

Mali head into this game with a lot more quality at the top-end of the pitch with the likes of Djenepo and Kone expected to cause problems. Nonetheless, we don't expect a goal-laden affair with the Equatoguineans boasting a strong rearguard but we're still backing Mali to secure progression.
