Our Best Predictions and Analysis for Guinea vs Gambia
This AFCON Quarterfinals encounter between Guinea and Gambia will also be the first ever matchup of the two teams. With that, we should expect a difficult game as both teams battle for a place in the semifinals in a game that will also hand either side supremacy over the other. Here is our detailed analysis of the best picks for this game:
Gambia to score the first goal @ 187/100 (2.87)
Making it to the AFCON 2022 quarterfinals is undoubtedly a big achievement. However, Guinea was lucky to earn second place in Group B with 4 points but on goal difference. They recorded WDL in the group stage matches but only scored two goals, as much as they leaked. On the flip-side, Gambia earned second place in Group F with 7 points, three more than Guinea in group stage matches. Moreover, Gambia recorded 2W and 1D in the group stage and look better in attacking and defensive positions. We think Gambia should have an advantage based on recent stats to score the first goal in this game.
Draw in the first half @ 83/100 (1.83)
The AFCON 2022 Quarterfinals is a do-or-die for Guinea and Gambia. Like most group stage games, we don’t think there will be lots of goals in this match. A deadlocked first-half is an outcome we expected in this match.
