Gabon preview: Hoping to stay close to Ivory Coast

After losing to Ivory Coast a few days ago, Gabon are now at six points from three games in the WC qualifiers and they are second in their group behind the reigning African champions, who have won all three of their matches. Gabon are now on a three-game streak without a win including a couple of friendly matches, so they'll be hoping to end it against Gambia.

Predicted lineup: Noubi (GK), Obiang, Appindangoye, Ecuele Manga, Oyono, Biteghe, Kanga, Lemina, Bouanga, Allevinah, Aubameyang

Gambia preview: Hoping to avoid another loss

With two losses in the first three games in the WC qualifiers, Gambia's chances of making it to the next stage are diminishing quickly. That being said, no one really expected Gambia to battle for a spot at the World Cup, so things have gone pretty much according to expectations for them so far.

Predicted lineup: Jarju (GK), Sanneh, Ceesay, Colley, Gaye, Manneh, Bobb, Fadera, Barrow, Minteh & Badamosi

Will Aubameyang lead Gabon to victory?

While Gabon have notched four goals in three games in WC qualifiers, Aubameyang has yet to score a goal in this competition. Will he break the dry spell against Gambia on Tuesday?
