Gabon vs Burkina-Faso Prediction 18 January 2017

Tournament: African Cup of Nations
Location:  Stade Omar Bongo
Match date: 18.01.2017 at 16:00

On January 18 2017 at 16:00 in the regular game of the African Cup of Nations matchday at the Stade Omar Bongo in Libreville Gabon national team plays against Burkina Faso.

Gabon national team is the hosts of the current African Cup of Nations and that is why they didn’t take part in the qualifiers. We must also admit that it’s the 6th time in a row when Gabon take part in the final stage of this competition. In the first round game they played against Guinea-Bissau. The game was pretty interesting with a lot of chances created. Gabon scored first on the 53rd minute and after that they slowed down a lot trying to keep the score they had. Yet, Guinea-Bissau managed to score the equalizer at the end of the game which finished with a draw 1:1.

As for Burkina-Faso, they have taken part in the final rounds of the African Cup of Nations many times already. In 2013 they even managed to become the finalists of it. In the first match of the current stage they met Cameroon. That match was very interesting and full of great attempts. Cameroon was the first to score, yet Burkina-Faso also managed to score their goal on the 75th minute and the game finished with a draw.

The results and the statistics of the latest games played between the teams show that Gabon are the favorites of the upcoming game as they won three of the six matches played. Last time they met in January 2015 and Gabon won 0:2 in the away match. Gabon didn’t manage to get their three points in the first game and now they really need them. In case Gabon lose, they may also lose their chance to make it to the play-offs of the competition. We think that the hosts will try their best to win or at least not to lose.
