Ghana failed to maintain the top spot in Group D by defeating Uganda (1-0) and Mali (1-0) on the same score against Egypt. A defeat that propels André Ayew and his teammates against the DR Congo of Kabananga (3 goals), Mbokani and Bakambu. A very bad news for the Black Stars both the Leopards roar since the opening of the CAN. First of a group C yet composed of Morocco and Côte d’Ivoire, the Congolese clearly aim for the title. Too often disappointed in the knockout matches at the last continental meetings, will the Ghanaians find the solutions to resist a formation that imposes more and more its law on the continent?
DR Congo Ghana PREDICTION
With two victories (Morocco, Togo) and a draw (Côte d’Ivoire), the DR Congo is still undefeated in this CAN.
The Congolese have lost only one of their last 12 games played in the African Cup!
After timidly dominating Morocco (1-0) and the Togolese (1-0), Ghana showed first limits in bowing to the Pharaohs. Not the best way to prepare for the quarterfinals.
Ghana won only one of the five historic confrontations.
DR Congo Ghana – Our prediction
The DR Congo is playing an attractive football but continues to be underestimated by the bookmakers. This team has absolutely nothing to envy in Ghana. Better, it has brought more guarantees since the kick-off of the competition. Although more experienced, Ghanaians will find it very difficult to win in regular time. RD Congo or Nul.
