Burkina Faso vs Gabon Match Preview and Predictions by LeagueLane

Burkina Faso vs Gabon
African Cup of Nations
Date: 23 January 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Omnisport de Limbe (Limbe).

The African Cup of Nations quarterfinal will be at stake on Sunday afternoon when Burkina Faso and Gabon take on each other at Stade Omnisport de Limbe.

Gabon left a better impression in the group phase. They went through it unharmed, playing a couple of draws and beating Comoros in the process.

The fact that Gabon exited the group with Morocco, Ghana, and Comoros unbeaten speaks enough about their current form and strength.

We were particularly impressed by Gabon’s performance in the last round when they held one of the main favorites for the title Morocco to a 2-2 draw in an open game.

Burkina Faso, on the other side, disappointed in their last match of the group stage. They drew 1-1 to Ethiopia but showed a very modest display on the occasion.

Kamou Malo’s troops registered only two shots on target in the clash against Ethiopia. They will have to do much better if they want to stay alive in the knockout phase of the competition.

Burkina Faso scored a goal in each of their three Africa Cup of Nations outings, much like Gabon. Could we see the continuation of the two teams’ attacking form here?

Burkina Faso vs Gabon Head-to-head

  • These two sides met each other in a friendly just before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations.
  • Burkina Faso celebrated a 3-0 victory on the occasion (on January 3rd).
  • Nine of the last ten head-to-head clashes between these two rivals ended with fewer than three goals scored.

Burkina Faso vs Gabon Prediction

Burkina Faso did not look at all in the previous game against Ethiopia. This is why we fancy Gabon to maintain their fine spell of form and take advantage of the momentum. Gabon looked dangerous in the final third against Morocco. They also found the net in a 1-1 draw to Ghana.

We are backing Gabon to win at the 2.25 odds, while you can alternatively go with the draw at the half time at the 1.95 odds. We expect both teams to nervously enter such an important clash and we don’t believe they will offer some spectacular football on the occasion.

Burkina Faso vs Gabon Betting Tips

  • Gabon to win @ 2.25 (5/4)
  • Draw at the half time @ 1.95 (19/20) odd.
