Madagascar faces Congo DR in a match from the knockout phase
Madagascar faces Congo DR in a match from the knockout phase of the African Cup of Nations. This clash is going to get played at the Alexandria Stadium in the city of Alexandria. Here are our free soccer bets for this match.
Madagascar are one of the nice surprises in the tournament so far. They are unbeaten since the beginning of the competition, winning their group with two wins and one draw. They started their participation with a draw against Guinea, which was followed by two consecutive wins over Burundi and Nigeria.
Nigeria were the major favourites in this group, but in the third round of the group stage Madagascar achieved a comfortable 2-0 win over the Super Eagles, winning the group as well. Lalaina Nomenjanahary and Charles Andriamatsinoro scored for Barea and put Nigeria on their knees. It was quite suprising, but Madagascar showed that they are a really capable team.
The fact that Madagascar are debutants in the Cup of Nations makes their performance even more impressive. Most of the pundits labeled them underdogs in the tournament, but so far they are showing very high level. The fact that they managed to beat a very strong team like Nigeria speaks for itself.
Congo DR on the other hand reached the knockout phase with only three points in their group. They kicked off their campaign with two consecutive losses against Uganda and Egypt, but in their third game they crushed Zimbabwe with 4-0. Cedric Bakambu scored a brace for the winning side, while Jonathan Bolingi and Britt Assombalonga also scored for Congo. This win basically guaranteed Congo DR a place at the 1/8-finals of the tournament.
