Congo - could face disqualification if they lose
In order to keep their hopes of advancing to the knockout stages of the competition alive, the Red Devils need to secure a result from their match against the Menas in the city of Oran, which is part of Group D. They were defeated 1-0 by bitter rivals Cameroon in an intensely contested match on Monday, but head coach Jean Elie Ngoya Obackas is confident that his team will respond favorably in the match that will determine whether or not they advance to the next round. However, Congo will be without three players since they are sidelined with injuries. Central defender Carof Bakoua, defender Faria Jobel Ondongo, and forward Georges Kader Bidimbou, who is sidelined with a knee injury of the first degree, are the players who will not be available.
Niger - hoping to start their competition with a win
Niger will be playing this match for the first time in the 2023 African Nations Championship tournament, and they will enter it with the goal of claiming all three points available to them. Niger is likely to be well prepared for this encounter, despite the fact that they are aware that a victory in this match will go a long way toward enhancing their chances of advancing to the knockout phase. If we look at Niger's results leading up to this tournament, we can see that they had only one victory in their most recent ten matches across all tournaments.
