Match Preview

Following last week’s friendly 1-1 tie with Mozambique, the Angolans enter this match on a positive note. After the half, Dala Gerson and Faisal Bangal both scored a goal to tie the game at 1-1 in the 71st and 85th minutes, respectively.

A 1-1 friendly match between Congo DR and New Zealand also saw both teams split the points. In the first minute of stoppage time, Chris Wood equalized from the penalty spot after Cedric Bakambu had given them the lead in the 46th minute. They were then on the verge of winning the game.

As they continue to get ready for the commencement of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November, the Leopards will focus once more on Angola. In Group B, they are slated to compete against Sudan and Mauritania. Next month, Angola will compete against Cape Verde and Mauritius.

Angola vs DR Congo Prediction

DR Congo and Angola both earned spots in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, with the former winning Group I and the latter earning a spot as Group E runners-up.

The focus will go to the World Cup qualifying matches starting in one month, although Angola’s recent performance—one win in their previous six matches—leaves opportunity for growth. Additionally, they have a poor record against Congo DR, who are now without a win after two games.

We predict Sebastien Desabre’s team will earn a slim victory and a spotless record.

Consensus: Angola 0–1 Congo DR
