Young Guinea Bissau host unlucky Burkina Faso in the final games of the group stage.
Guinea Bissau squandered an early first half lead in their match day 2 clash with Cameroon. The Djurutus conceded 2 goals in the second half as they tasted their first Africa Cup of nation defeat. Guinea Bissau still has a slim chance to make it to the next round, if they can rub Burkina Faso of 3 points. In addition, the Djurtus sits 4th on the log with 1 point.
Burkina Faso shared points with Gabon in their match day 2 clash with host country. The stallion went ahead first, but failed to hold their own as they conceded a goal 15 minutes after taking the lead. Burkina Faso has better chance to the next phase than their match day counterpart. The stallion sits 2nd on the log with 2 points.

Guinea Bissau Vs Burkina Faso: Prediction
Guinea Bissau needs nothing but a win to book a place in the quarter final. On the other hand, a draw could end up good for Burkina Faso depending on the outcome of Gabon Vs Cameroon result.
However, due to more AFCON experience I will predict a straight win for the stallion of Burkina Faso.
