Our Best Two AFCON Predictions for Mauritania vs Gambia

There have been three encounters between Mauritania and Gambia. The last meet meetings were in the 2016 AFCON qualifications and the other one, a friendly fixture played back in 2015. Both teams boast 1W against each other. The last encounter was a draw but that is a long way back in 2016 which should not have any significant impact on how these teams will fare against each other in this fourth meeting in the AFCON 2022 challenge.

Most games played so far in 2022 AFCON tournament in Cameroon have had fewer than the goals. We don’t think this fixture will be any different. It seems most teams are cautious going forward. Al three previous meetings between Mauritania and Gambia recorded fewer than three goals. We see a similar scoreline in this 11th game of the AFCON 2022 tournament.

Gambia to open the scoring @ 63/50 (2.25)

Expectations on both sides are high but winning this match not only boils down to who is hungrier for playoffs but also defensive prowess of both teams. Looking at the last ten games, Mauritania has had an awful defensive performance compared to Gambia. Mauritania lost six of their last ten games and bagged only one victory within that duration. On the other hand, Gambia recorded 5 wins, 4 losses and one draw in as many previous matches.

Match Preview: Mauritania and Gambia Kick off Cameroon AFCON 2022 Campaign at Limbe Stadium

Mauritania vs Gambia will be the 11th game of the AFCON 2022. These teams haven’t met in a long time. The last encounter was in March 2016, a match that ended in a barren draw. The last ten matches should, however, play more significance in this fourth meeting between Mauritania and Gambia. With Tunisia and Mali being the other teams in AFCON 2022 group F, this match will put Mauritania and Gambia under a lot of pressure, three hours after Tunisia vs Mali will have taken place.

Mauritania’s head coach, Didier Gomes Da Rosa hasn’t performed to expectations since taking over in November 2021. He has managed four games, lost two, and bagged one win and one draw. His AFCON 2022 matchday opponent, Tom Saintfiet, has been in charge of Gambia since July 2018, seeing out 23 games so far. Saintfiet averages 2.52 points and prefers 4-2-3-1 formation, which is the same formation preferred by Mauritania’s Da Rosa.

Mauritania predicted lineup: Diop, Demba, Diarra, Abeid, Camara, Coulibaly, Dellahi, Fofana, Mahmoud, Doukara and Pape Ba.

Gambia will be without Saidy Janko who is out with back injury but could return to the starting eleven anytime.

Gambia predicted lineup: Koblenz, Janko, Colley, Sundberg, Gomez, Marreh, Adams, Darboe, Trawally, Njie and Barrow.
