The upcoming Africa Cup of Nations match on Saturday will feature a thrilling clash between Mauritania and Angola.
Mauritania will be aiming for an improved outcome after their 1-0 defeat against Burkina Faso in their previous match. In said match, Mauritania held possession for 38% of the game and made 9 attempts at goal, with 4 of them on target. As for their opponents, Burkina Faso managed to have 11 attempts on goal, with 5 of them hitting the target. The goal scorer for Burkina Faso was Bertrand Traoré in the 96th minute.
Mauritania has failed to capitalize on their recent goal scoring opportunities. They have only managed to score 3 goals in their last 6 matches. Additionally, they have conceded a total of 6 goals during those matches.
Angola and Algeria played to a 1-1 draw in their previous match of the Africa Cup of Nations. In their previous match, Angola managed to secure only 34% of possession and made 7 attempts at goal, out of which only 1 was on target. The goal for Angola was scored by Mabululu in the 68th minute. On the other hand, Algeria had a total of 16 attempts at goal, with 3 of them being on target. Baghdad Bounedjah found the back of the net for Algeria in the 18th minute.
Angola’s fixtures have consistently lacked excitement, as they have failed to produce many goals. Over the course of their last 6 games, only 4 goals have been scored in total, resulting in an average of 0.67 goals per match for both Angola and their opponents.
We believe that both Angola and Mauritania have the potential to score in this match, although it is difficult to determine a definite winner. It is highly likely that the match will result in a draw. Therefore, our prediction is a closely contested game with a final score of 1-1 by full time.
