Zimbabwe goes head to head with Congo DR
Zimbabwe goes head to head with Congo DR in a match from Group A of the Cup of Nations. Here are our predictions football 1×2 for this clash on Sunday. Let’s go!
Being third in the group with one point won so far, Zimbabwe still have some chances to reach the knockout phase, but only if they win against Congo DR. The Warriors kicked off their campaign with a loss against the host Egypt, while in the second round they made a 1-1 with Uganda.
The game in Cairo didn’t start well for the Warriors, because Uganda opened the score with an early goal from Emmanuel Okwi. Just five minutes before the half time Zimbabwe showed some spirit and equalised, thanks to the strike from Khama Billiat. He used an assist from Ovidy Karuru and found the net behind Denis Onyango’s back.
Zimbabwe clearly wanted to record a first win in the group, but this point is also giving them some chances to reach the next phase of the tournament.
Meanwhile Congo DR are at the bottom of the group with no points won so far. They began their participation with a 0-2 loss against Uganda, which was followed by another defeat with the same result against Egypt.
Because of these losses in the first two games, we shall expect to see the manager Jean Florent Ibenge making some changes in his starting line-up. Clearly what he is trying so far is not working very well. Against Egypt he gave chance to Elia Meschack and Yannick Bolasie from the bench, so maybe they could start against Zimbabwe on Sunday.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Cup of Nations fixture between Zimbabwe and Congo DR from Group A of the competition. Both teams are doing far from impressive in the tournament so far, so let’s see what they can do in their last game from the group stage.
