Gabon were held to a 1-1 draw in their first clash with Guinea-Bissau. The panther drew the first blood after Pierre Emerick Aubameyang put the host in front at the 53rd minutes, but succumb to a late minutes strike from Guniea-Bissau Juary Soares as the debutant forced Gabon to a 1-1 draw.

Burkina Faso forced Cameroon to a 1-1 draw on match day 1 of the AFCON tournament going on Gabon. The 2013 finalist went behind at the 35th minutes due to a nice curler from Benjamin Moukandjo, the stallion however leveled things at the 75th minutes after a beautiful cross met a well-placed Issoufou Dayo.

Gabon vs Burkina Faso: Head to Head Statistics

Both sides will be facing each other for the 2nd consecutive time in the Africa Cup Of Nation. This two sides met at the group stage of the 2015 AFCON in equatorial guinea; Gabon scored one goal in each half to enjoy a 2-0 win over the stallion in that edition.

Moreover, Burkina Faso have failed to defeat Gabon in the last 3 games related to Africa Cup of nations; 2 of this 3 games were in the Africa Cup of nation qualifiers, while the last one in the Africa cup of nations proper.

Gabon vs Guinea Bissau: Prediction

Gabon and Burkina Faso are two decently experience side when we talk about the big one in Africa. Though they shared points in their first game of the championship, the stallions, and the panthers gave good account of themselves with better ball possession and hunger for victory. Gabon and Guinea could however extend or rewrite head-to-head history as both sides have had unbalanced share of each other in the competition.

Therefore, this promises to be an action packed games with a lot of fireworks, fans hopes, and even goals. However, I will predict a 2-1 win for Burkina Faso.
