Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Angola and Gabon square off against each other at Estadio 11 de Novembro in what is expected to be an interesting World Cup qualifier. Gabon are desperate to record their first win of the process, and seeing that they are five points behind Group F leaders Libya ahead of the trip to Luanda, this has to go down as a must-win game for the away side.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be the man to watch in the away team, as well as in-form Crvena Zvezda midfielder Guelor Kanga. Angola, on the other hand, made a slow start to their WC qualifying campaign, with the team losing to both Egypt and Libya in the previous two league fixtures. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Gabon will not have a better chance than this to record their first triumph of the process.
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.
