Equatorial Guinea vs Guinea Bissau team news

Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea opened the scoring in their AFCON 2023 Group A opener against Nigeria's Super Eagles, but conceded the equaliser a minute later. They had to settle for a draw, which means Juan Micha's troops are now on an 11-match unbeaten run. A victory here will likely cement Nzalang Nacional's place in the knockout stages. Micha will be pleased to have no injured or suspended players for this contest.

Predicted lineup: Owono, Akapo, Coco, Obiang, Ndong, Ganet, Bikoro, Salvador, Machin, Buyla, Nsue.

Guinea Bissau

On the other hand, Guinea-Bissau suffered a 2-0 loss to hosts Ivory Coast in their opening match. They've now lost back-to-back games, conceding eight times in the process. Being last in Group A, Baciro Candé's men will need all the points they can get.

Predicted lineup: Djoco, Candé, Djaló, Sangate, Encada, Semedo, Bikel, Cassama, Mané, Baldé, Rodrigues.

*Confirmed Equatorial Guinea vs Guinea Bissau lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to watch: Iban Salvador

Iban Salvador was all over the place in Equatorial Guinea's 1-1 draw with Nigeria a few days ago. He scored the opening goal in that match, and caused some problems for Nigeria's defence. It should be worth keeping an eye on the Miedź Legnica player.
