Prediction & Analysis: Cape Verde vs Mauritania 01/29/24

January 26, 2024


Game Preview


On January 29, Cape Verde and Mauritania will square off at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny stadium in Abidjan, Ivory Coast to play a knockout round match for the Africa Cup of Nations.


It has not been a very happy path for Mauritania to get to the 3rd AFCON knockout stages. To reach this stage of its development, the nation, which only made it to its maiden AFCON competition in 2019, has to put in a lot of effort and establish systems. Mauritania defeated 2019 champions Algeria to win in the AFCON for the first time ever. Incredibly, Mohamed Dellahi’s goal in 37 minutes marked the first time in an African Cup of Nations game that the underdogs had ever taken the lead. With a win, they have advanced to the next round of competition and face fellow formidable opponents, Cape Verde. Mauritania, ranked 105th in the FIFA World Rankings, are eager to demonstrate their playstyle confidence going into this match.



Any football fan could have forgiven themselves for ranking Egypt and Ghana higher than Cape Verde in terms of moving on to the next stage when the Group B team draws were revealed. In addition to underscoring the erratic character of the AFCON, they have advanced undefeated through the tournament’s knockout stages after winning their group with seven points. Cape Verde’s coach, Bubista, was optimistic following their performance in the group stage. They have only made four AFCON qualifying trips, so defeating Ghana while limiting Egypt to a draw is no small accomplishment. In his team’s first 2 games in this competition, Bubista has started with the same lineup, and it’s expected he will remain using that lineup, especially having to rely on his star players. In that scenario, players like Rodrigues and Gilson Tavares, who have appeared off the bench in both of the competition’s games thus far, will probably no be in the starting lineup.
