Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Stade Omnisport Roumde Adjia will host Group D game between Sudan and Guinea Bissau. The Falcons of Jediane failed to impress in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, and given their eleven-game winless run in all competitions, we do not believe that home win should be considered. One of the men to keep an eye on in the home team will be Al-Hilal Club forward Mohamed Abdel Rahman, who has netted 7 goals in 19 appearances for the national team.
Guinea Bissau, on the other hand, are eyeing their first ever triumph at the Africa Cup of Nations finals. Head coach Baciro Cande has a couple of high-profile players to choose from, and given Sudan’s poor form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the nominal visitors. The two teams have never met before at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Highlighted Player (Mo Eisa):
Born on the 12th of July, 1994, in Khartoum, Sudan, Mo Eisa is a Sudanese professional footballer who plays for Peterborough United in the third tier of English Football. The 6ft tall striker/ winger is a Pro Touch Soccer Academy product.
The initial years of his career were spent playing non-league football with teams like Dartford, Leatherhead, and Greenwich Borough, the latter for whom he scored over 50 goals in 100 appearances. On the 7th of July, 2017, Eisa signed a contract with League Two outfit Cheltenham Town and made his league debut on the 5th of August, 2017.
A prolific season with the Robins earned him the Supporters' Player Of The Year and the Players' Player Of The Year awards at the end of the season. For the 18/19 season, the 25-year-old joined Championship side Bristol for a brief stint before returning to League One with Peterborough for the following season on a four-year contract.
Highlighted Team (Guinea Bissau):
Guinea-Bissau are an African football team that is controlled by Federacao de Futebol de Guine-Bissau. The Djutrus have never participated in the World Cup finals, but they did well to qualify for the 2017 African Cup of Nations.
Guinea-Bissau impressed in their qualifying group, with the team finishing the process in top position, leaving the likes of Congo, Zambia and Kenya behind them in Group E. The team play their home games at Estadio 24 de Setembro and Estadio Lino Correia and the colour of their home kit is red. Guinea-Bissau play their away matches in green shirts and green shorts. The likes of Edson Ricardo Nunes Correia Silva, Gerso Fernandes, Lassana Camara, Almami Moreira, Bocundji Ca, Eridson, Luciano Teixeira and Esmael Goncalves are some of Guinea-Bissau’s most notable players.
The Djutrus recorded their biggest win against Benin (7-2) on 3 November, 2001, while they suffered their biggest loss against Mali (1-6) in 1997. Guinea-Bissau played under the name of Portuguese Guinea in the past.
