Gambia - hopeful to avoid another defeat
Gambia is currently in last place with three points, and if they continue to struggle here, their prospects of competing in the final tournament in Ivory Coast will likely decrease even further. With his 44th international appearance for Gambia, experienced defender Omar Colley has a chance to overcome Pa Modou Jagne and become the country's all-time leading appearance maker. The Gambia have not been victorious in any of their last three matches across all competitions; the country's most recent victory was against Guinea Bissau in August 2022.
Mali - a win to remain top of the group
Kamory Doumbia and Adama Traore scored for the Eagles of Mali during their match against each other the previous week, which resulted in a 2-0 victory for Mali in Bamako. They have a perfect record of three wins out of three in the qualifying competition, giving them a perfect score of nine points overall. Moussa Doumbia and Moussa Djenepo are two excellent substitutes who might be used if Malian head coach Éric Chelle decides to stick with the same starting lineup. Kamory Doumbia, on the other hand, should be able to keep his spot in the starting eleven after scoring a goal for the Eagles in his first three minutes of action at the international level.
Expert Betting Tips
The Gambia's offense has done a good job of appearing dangerous during these qualifying matches, but they have failed to score in all three of their games leading up to this match. Even if they find their attacking boots here, Mali is the team most likely to win again. Not only have they maintained a perfect record of wins in the group stage, but they've also cruised through this level with ease.
