If we look at the DR Congo vs Togo odds, we can see that the hosts are the expected winners, by a big margin. That is expected given the recent results of both teams, especially DR Congo's success at AFCON earlier this year.

On top of that, DR Congo are the better team on paper and with them also hosting the match, it's not surprising to see the bookies favouring them in this duel.

In any case, if you enjoyed our predictions for this game, remember to take a look at our latest betting tips for today too.

Last five H2Hs: Clear domination by DR Congo

With four wins and one loss in the last five duels with Togo, DR Congo have clearly been the better team of the two recently. In fact, things are pretty much the same when it comes to their overall H2H record: 7-2-1 for DR Congo.

DR Congo preview: Hoping for a win so they don't fall behind

With just four points from the first three games in the WC qualifiers, DR Congo are currently third in their group, behind Sudan and Senegal. Their loss to Sudan has been especially surprising and DR Congo are not looking as good as they did at AFCON 2023. Still, they are very much in the running for the next stage of these qualifiers, but they really need to beat Togo in the next match or they risk falling behind.

Predicted lineup: Bertaud (GK), Masuaku, Inonga, Mbemba, Tuanzebe, Pickel, Moutoussamy, Kakuta, Wissa, Mayele & Essende

Togo preview: Is another draw at the cards for them?

Although Togo are undefeated after the first three games in the WC qualifiers, they are also winless as well. With three draws and, consequently, three points, they are currently fourth in their group, one point behind their next opponent DR Congo. So, to stay in the race for the top, Togo will have to find a way to avoid a loss once again.

Player to watch: Yoane Wissa

Last season was the best one yet at Brentford for Wissa given that he's scored 12 goals in the Premier League. So, with the forward in good form, we can see him doing well in DR Congo's national team too.

Wissa hoping for his sixth goal in the national team.

With five goals in 26 appearances for DR Congo, Wissa is one of the team's main offensive weapons. However, with just one goal in three matches in these qualifiers, he will hope to contribute more in the upcoming games.
