On January 30, Mali and Burkina Faso are set to square off at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium in a knockout round match for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Following a scoreless draw with Namibia in their final group match, Mali will play second-place Burkina Faso from group D in the Round 16 elimination round. Following their 2-0 victory over South Africa in their debut match, they have since claimed 2 consecutive draws. Mali has been outstanding in their Afcon Campaign thus far, going undefeated and holding the first spot in their group with five points. Mali, who prevailed in their last recent meeting, will now look to gain a victory in order to attempt to fulfill their goal of winning the 2023 AFCON. They have been eliminated in the Round of 16 in both of their previous tournaments, and they have been ousted from group stages 4 times in their last 8 AFCON competitions. Mali, nevertheless, needs to be confident in achieving the desired outcome.
Burkina Faso, on the other hand, enters this match fresh off a 2-0 loss to Angola in their previous group match. They began the season with a 1-0 victory versus Mauritania and a 2-2 tie with Algeria in group D. Burkina Faso is aware that this would be a difficult encounter, but they are ready because they have shown their resolve in their last five games, winning three, drawing one, and losing one. Their average score per game, 1.60, demonstrates their proficiency in attacking. Burkina Faso’s Adama Guira is questionable for this match after suffering an incident in the draw with Algeria. After scoring goals in back-to-back games as a replacement, Bertrand Traore might be granted a spot in the starting lineup this time around. This game will prove a real test to Burkina Faso and Mali won’t put up an easy fight for them.
