Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
DR Congo and Angola go head to head at Stade des Martyrs de la Pentecote in what is expected to be a close encounter. DR Congo head into Saturday’s AFCON qualifiers following back-to-back draws with Gabon and Gambia, and they are now on a quest to record their first win of the process. Experienced attacker Cedric Bakambu, who plays for Chinese club Beijing Guoan, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Angola, on the other hand, made a slow start to their AFCON qualifying campaign, with the team losing each of their first two group games, and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting in a competitive match DR Congo defeated Angola 2-0, and you should bear in mind that the Leopards are eyeing their fifth consecutive win over the Palancas Negras.
