At the Stade de la Paix stadium in Bouake City, on January 23, Gambia and Cameroon are due to face off. Group C of the Africa Cup of Nations includes the game.
Gambia’s chances of qualifying for AFCON 2023 seem dim following a 2nd straight loss, this time by a score of 1-0 against Guinea in Group F. After falling down to a goal in the 69th minute by Aguibou Camara, the Scorpions managed 7 shots on goal but were unable to equalize. Tom Saintfiet’s team is still without a point or score in the competition after losing their opening match 3-0 to Senegal. With their last group match versus Cameroon, they have a slim chance to win some pride and score their first goal and points, but history does not bode well. Gambia has only won 2 of their past ten games in all competitions, and they are currently on a 4-game losing streak. They will need to be motivated to break that in this game.
Cameroon drew 1-1 with Guinea to start their AFCON campaign, but now their chances of qualifying for the round of 16 are in jeopardy after suffering a 3-1 loss versus Senegal on matchday two. With just 20 minutes left, Ismaila Sarr’s deflection strike and Habib Diallo’s exquisite finish gave the Indomitable Lions two goals. A late header by Jean-Charles Castelletto in the 83rd minute gave rise to a brief glimmer of optimism, but Sadio Mane’s goal in stoppage time crushed any remaining hopes of a rally. With only one point after 2 games, Rigobert Song’s team is in a scenario where they need to win in order to advance to the knockout stage versus Gambia. In the group standings, Rigobert Song’s team is one spot and one point ahead of their opponents from midweek, so they will be fervently pursuing a victory in this match.
