Togo vs DR Congo
African Cup of Nation 2017 – Group D
Date: Tuesday, 24 January 2017
Kick-off: 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de Port-Gentil.
DR Congo are half way into the quarter finals of AFCON 2017 after going unbeaten in their first two games. They will be playing Togo in their final game of the group stage at Stade de Port Gentil as they hope for at least a point to move them into the next stage.
Togo suffered a 3-1 defeat to Morocco in their second game, this have put them in a difficult angle as the group game concludes. Togo are in last spot in group C with just 1 point, they need to win this game with more than a goal while hoping the other game ends in their favour.
On the Contrary, DR Congo needs just a draw to crawl over to the next stage, having accumulated 4 points. They are leading the group having won one and drawn one game. However a heavy defeat in this game could still kick them out of the competition.

DR Congo: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Togo vs DR Congo: Prediction
With the performance Congo mustered in their first 2 games, they are bound to get at least a point in this one. They may resort to play deep defensively, knowing fully well that a draw is enough for them.
Togo will go all out on attack to seek a win, but we don’t see them winning this one. We expect Congo to win or draw this one and cross to the next stage
