Mali faces Mauritania

Mali faces Mauritania in a match from Group E of the African Cup of Nations. Let us offer you our vip soccer bets for this clash in the city of Suez.

Mali’s best achievement at the Cup of Nations is reaching the final in 1972. Since then, the best they could do is winning the third place, which happened in two consecutive years – in 2012 and 2013. Two years ago the Eagles participated at the competition again, but they were knocked out in the group stage.

At this moment Mali do not have a head coach and they are managed by a caretaker. This is Mohamed Magassouba. It remains to be seen how he will do with this job. If he do well, maybe he will get the job for good.

There are some really interesting names in Mali’s current squad. We can mention Porto’s Moussa Marega, Sporting CP’s Abdoulay Diaby, RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara, Reims’ Moussa Doumbia and other. Almost all of Mali’s players are currently performing in Europe, which is a proof that the level of this team is pretty high.

Meanwhile Mauritania are participating at the Cup of Nations for a first time in their history, which is a proof that they do not have rich traditions in football. Right now they are being managed by former French international Corentin Martins, who is doing the job since 2014. For him the Cup of Nations is going to be the biggest challenge so far in his career.

In Mauritania’s squad there are some players who are signed to European clubs. Some of them are Real Valladolid’s Hacen El Ide, Grenoble’s Ibrehima Coulibaly, Gaziantep’s Adama Ba and Alcorcon’s Aly Abeid. This is hardly impressive, of course, but a little bit of European experience could help the team.

These are our vip soccer bets for the Cup of Nations game between Mali and Mauritania on Monday. Good luck!
