Equatorial Guinea will face Guinea-Bissau on matchday two of the Africa Cup of Nations group phase at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
Jan Micha’s team played out a 1-1 draw with Nigeria last Sunday, while the Djirtus suffered a 2-0 defeat to Ivory Coast in the competition opener.
A win would be a huge result for Equatorial Guinea, as they would move temporarily to the summit of Group A with four points, with a higher chance of making it past the group stages.
Baciro Cande’s team however will be looking to avoid successive defeats with the hope of turning their fortunes around for the better with this clash.
Moreover, Guinea-Bissau have conceded eight goals in their last two games and will need to show some defensive resilience if they desire to complete this match with a good result.
For this intriguing clash, Iban Salvador is the player to keep a close eye on following his strike for the Djirtus against Nigeria.
The game starts at 2:00 pm.
