After a disappointing draw against Mauritania last time out, Angola now face arguably the strongest side in this group with their hopes of qualifying for the latter stages of the competition still in the balance. Their 1-1 draw with Tunisia in their first match was respectable and would have been seen as a decent point, but to follow up with a draw against Mauritania puts a shadow on the result. Srdan Vasiljevic’s side need to be more clinical in front of goal, and create more chances.
Mali made a great start to their AFCON 2019 campaign with a 4-1 hammering of Mauritania. They followed that up with a draw against Tunisia to leave them in control of the group and manager Magassouba will want to ensure no slip-ups in this game so they finish top of the group.
We haven’t seen a both teams to score bet win in many African Cup of Nations matches so far this summer, but this match looks as good a chance as any to get a win. Mali were not solid looking in defence in their opening match and against better opposition, would have conceded more than the penalty Mauritania scored. Angola scored against Tunisia in their opening match and that gives us hope they will do the same in this one, so BTTS is the first of our Angola vs Mali predictions this week.
Despite predicting both teams to score, we are going to bet on Mali to just edge this game and win 2-1. The Eagles know a win will secure top spot in the group and that is exactly what they will be looking for, especially because in our Mauritania vs Tunisia predictions we have bet on a Tunisia win, which would put Mali’s place at the top of Group E in jeopardy.
