Half-time Draw @ 9/10 (1.90)
Burkina Faso vs Gabon kick off our AFCON 2022 Quarterfinals previews. With that, we don’t expect an easy game for either side. Previous meetings proved just how difficult this matchup is as all yielded fewer than three goals. A tough duel in this game is expected and so, we don’t think there will be a breakthrough in the first half of this game.
No BTTS: 61/100
Given that this is first time Burkina Faso and Gabon are meeting at the quarterfinals stage, a tough duel in what we least expect at Limbe Omnisport Stadium. Four out of the six past meetings had goals on one end. It is a trend we will likely witness in this match.

Burkina Faso vs Gabon: Quarterfinals AFCON 2022, Lineups and Team New
These teams have played against each other six times previously. Interestingly, all the past encounters were group stage matches. Burkina Faso is a team to watch in this game. While they scored only three goals in three group stage matches, they were hard team to break down defensively. On the other hand, Gabon proved why they are participating in the 2022 AFCON tournament by emerging second in a group that included Ghana and Morocco. They drew against Group C favourites Morocco and Ghana, a performance that makes them a tough opponent in this arrangement. On the flip-side, Burkina Faso had a relatively easy opponents in Group A. And while they lost to Cameroon in the first group stage fixture, scoring a goal in the 2-1 loss to the AFCON 2022 hosts was commendable.
Notably, this knockout fixture matches two teams that conceded three goals each in the group stage matches. And while Gabon qualifier by a point more than Burkina Faso, the two teams found the net in each of their group stage matches.
Previous meetings between these teams were equally manifest of defensive prowess. Two draws, 1W to Burkina Faso and 3W for Gabon in six previous matchups set the stage for another tough duel, and this time, at a more advanced level. We don’t expect a lot of changes in the previous lineups heading into this game.
Burkina Faso predicted lineup: Ouedraogo, Kabore, Yago, Tapsoba, Dayo, Blati Toure, Guira, Bayala, Sangare, Traore and Bande.
Gabon predicted lineup: Amonome, Palun, Manga, Assoumou, Oyono, Obiang, Poko, Moussounda, Kanga, Alleninah and Boupendza.
