Prediction for the match Mali – Equatorial Guinea on 26/01/2022
Mali may no longer have the stars that Seydou Keita once had. However, with the possible exception of the goalie line, the Eagles are normally well-equipped. However, this is Africa, and the goalkeepers are powerful and now unquestionable – Onana, Edouard Mendy, and perhaps that’s it. However, there are Bissuma and Genepo from the Premier League, Aydar and Samassekou from the Bundesliga, and a slew of players from France’s Ligue 1. 7 points out of 9 were collected for three group-round matches; however, three out of four goals were scored from the penalty spot, and with Tunisia, the final whistle was sounded before the allocated 90 minutes expired on the second try.
Equatorial Guinea pleasantly surprised us. Few anticipated much from “National Lightning,” which was just published for the third time on CAN. However, the squad noted that in the past, it had always exited the group stage, and in 2015, it even made it to the semi-finals. Without the injured Obiang, but with Nsue and Akapo from Cadiz, it was feasible to defeat not just Sierra Leone, but also the continent’s current champion, Algeria. Only Cote d’Ivoire lost, and it was a 0-1 loss. As a consequence, even according to the usual standards, there would have been enough points to take second place.
In 2016, the teams competed in the CAN qualifying. Mali then won both encounters.
