Today, as part of the 3rd round of Group D at the Africa Cup of Nations, the national teams of Angola and Burkina Faso will play.

Angola's national team

Angola's national team has been showing unexpectedly strong results at the Africa Cup of Nations, occupying the top position in their group after two matches. In their last match, Angola sensationally defeated Mauritania with a score of 3:2, scoring three goals within 20 minutes of the game. Gelson Dala of Al-Wahda doubled their score and Gilberto scored the winning goal. Earlier, the team managed to hold a draw against Algeria, thanks to a single precise penalty kick from Mabululu.

Under the guidance of Pedro Goncalves, the Angolan squad has some personnel issues. The absence of Fiorentina's forward Mbala Nzola and the conflicts of defender Clinton Mata with the federation weaken the team. Nevertheless, players like Gelson Dala and Zitu Luvumbu showcased their skills in recent matches.
Angola remained unbeaten in their last 8 matches, including friendlies, although most of them ended in a draw. Outstanding results in friendlies and at the Africa Cup of Nations indicate that the Angola team is capable of putting up a serious fight in the tournament, despite its current difficulties.

Burkina Faso's national team

Burkina Faso's national team is in good form at the Africa Cup of Nations, earning 4 points after two rounds. In their last match against Algeria, Burkina Faso managed a draw with 2:2, though they had a chance to win. Goals were credited to Konate and Traore, but the Algerians managed to equalise twice, including in the 95th minute. Algeria dominated throughout the match, so Burkina Faso should be pleased with the draw as their opponents created numerous dangerous moments.

In their first match of the tournament, Burkina Faso defeated Mauritania 1:0 due to a penalty from Bertrand Traore. The team dominated the second half, controlling the ball and creating numerous moments. Over the past 11 years, Burkina Faso's national team has been in the top four of the Africa Cup of Nations three times. The team includes such players as Tapsoba from Bayer and Bertrand Traore from Aston Villa, as well as Mohamed Konate from Akhmat. The team's midfield lacks major stars after the departure of Charles Kaboré.

Burkina Faso's recent matches showcase strong results, including victories over DR Congo and Ethiopia, although they lost to Iran in a friendly. These results underscore that Burkina Faso's national team is a strong and competitive rival on the African continent.

Head-to-Head

Historically, head-to-head results between Angola's and Burkina Faso's teams have been quite balanced. The last match between the two took place on 18 November 2018 during the Africa Cup of Nations, where Angola took the victory with a score of 2:1. In January 2018 during the Africa Cup of Nations, the teams drew 0:0. In a further Africa Cup of Nations match in June 2017, Burkina Faso defeated Angola 3:1. Another match, which took place on 19 November 2014, ended in a 1:1 draw.

Prediction for the Angola - Burkina Faso match

Both teams have approached the 3rd round match as leaders, but Burkina Faso appears stronger in composition and may resolve issues of advancing from the group from the first place. Angola, most likely, will play defensively aiming for a draw, as they have many goals and a draw might be enough to advance. Therefore, my bet is on a Burkina Faso win with a handicap (0).
