Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Estadio 11 de Novembro will host Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Angola and Central Africa. Las Palancas Negras failed to impress in the World Cup qualifiers, with the team collecting only five points in total from possible 18. Angola aim to kick off their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign in style, but this will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Valencia winger Helder Costa. The Wild Beasts, on the other hand, finished their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign in the last position in Group C, with only four points in their pocket. Since Central Africa are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score.
Highlighted Player (Bastos Quissanga):
Born in Luanda (Angola) on November 23, 1991, Bastos Jacinto Quissanga is a powerful defender who plays for Serie A side Lazio. Bastos started his senior career at domestic club Petro de Luanda and after scoring 6 goals in 105 appearances in the league for Os Tricolores, he moved to Russia in 2013, signing a deal with the Premier League side Rostov.
The 184-cm-tall defender proved his worth in the Russian top flight and, as expected, he decided to take a step forward in his career, signing a contract with famous Serie A team Lazio. Bastos failed to establish himself as a first-team regular with the Biancocelesti, but he plays an important role at the Angola national team. Bastos, whose main position is centre-back, made his international debut for the Palancas Negras on August 10, 2011 in a goalless draw against Liberia. His preferred foot is right.
