Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
A spot at the 2022 World Cup finals will be at stake when D.R. Congo and Benin take on each other at Stade des Martyrs de la Pentecote on Sunday. D.R. Congo did well to beat Tanzania 3-0 in their last group game, and a win over Benin will see them qualify for the next year’s showpiece tournament. Defender Glody Ngonda, who limped off with injury in Thursday’s qualifier, is unlikely to feature against Benin, while Kakuta should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
Les Ecureuils, on the other hand, are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the decider. Benin recorded a very important 2-0 win over Madagascar on Thursday afternoon, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the Leopards. Since both Mbokani and Bakambu should be deployed in D.R. Congo’s starting XI, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
