DR Congo vs Sudan Prediction

Group I is the most open group in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers, with no team guaranteed to qualify. All four teams still have a chance to reach the finals and their fate is in their own hands.

Congo have the upper hand and need just one point in their final game to book their place in the final against Ivory Coast. Sudan, on the other hand, need a win and will be eliminated if they miss all three points.

The Sudanese are looking to qualify for back-to-back AFCON tournaments to bring respite to their countrymen facing the ravages of war at home. Expect the hosts to get a comfortable win and still keep a clean sheet.

Prediction: Congo 2-0 Sudan
