Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
A place in the Africa Cup of Nations last 16 will be at stake when Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea face each other at Limbe Stadium on Thursday afternoon. Sierra Leone showed character in their second group game, with the team holding star-studded Ivory Coast to a 2-2 draw thanks to Alhaji Kamara’s late goal. The Randers attacker is widely expected to start against Equatorial Guinea.
The Nzalang Nacional, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Algeria. Equatorial Guinea are one point away from booking their place in the AFCON 2021 playoffs, and, taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever at the Africa Cup of Nations finals.
