Cape Verde vs Mauritania prediction

Cape Verde vs Mauritania Team News

Cape Verde

Cape Verde made several changes to their XI on matchday three in Group B and somehow still came away with a 2-2 draw from a tough test against a full-strength Egyptian side. Manager Pedro Leitao Brito is expected to draft his big guns back in for Monday's clash, however.

Predicted Lineup for Cape Verde: Vozinha – Moreira, Costa, Pico, Paulo – Duarte, Pina, Monteiro – Mendes, Cabral, Bebe

Mauritania

Mauritania qualified for AFCON's knockout stage though the back door after a 1-0 win in their do-or-die meeting with Algeria. They enjoyed success using a 4-1-4-1 formation against the Algerians and the same system could be deployed on Monday. Mauritania pulled off one of the big group stage shocks and will feel confident after progressing against all odds.

Predicted Lineup for Mauritania: Niasse – Keita, Dellahi, Ba, Diaw – Gassama, Amar, Thiam, Bodda, Koita – Anne

Player to Watch – Logan Costa

22-year-old defender Logan Costa has performed impressively at AFCON for Cape Verde so far and the Toulouse starlet will be aiming to play on the front foot again on Monday. Costa excelled against Egypt last time out and made some crucial last-gasp tackles to stop the opposing attackers from breaking in on goal.
