Today, as part of the Africa Cup of Nations in Group C, the teams from Guinea and Gambia will face off.

Guinea Team

Guinea secured a crucial single point in the first round of the Africa Cup of Nations, drawing 1:1 with Cameroon, who played most of the second half with a numerical advantage. The Guineans took the lead thanks to Bayo in the 10th minute but were outnumbered after the ex-player of Moscow's Locomotiv Kamano was sent off in the 45th minute. Having conceded an equalising goal in the 51st minute, Guinea confidently held their ground, allowing little to the opponents in the attack.

Guinea's attack features one of the top scorers of the German Bundesliga, Girassi, who is a key player of the team. However, he was injured in the last match for Stuttgart. There are also key players in the team, including central defender Diakhabi from Valencia and Kamano. Although the Guinea team has never participated in the final tournaments of the World Cup and their best achievement at the Africa Cup remains the second place obtained in 1976, the team's successes in the early 21st century deserve attention. The "Elephants of the Nation" consistently reached the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2004, 2006 and 2008, as well as in 2015, where they lost to Ghana with a score of 0:3. These results confirm that Guinea occupies a worthy place among the strong African teams.

The recent matches of the Guinea team before the Africa Cup of Nations showed good results. They beat Nigeria with a score of 2:0 on January 8, 2024, but suffered a defeat from Botswana with a score of 1:0 on November 21, 2023. On November 17, 2023, the team won over Uganda with a score of 2:1. In friendly matches, Guinea played a 1:1 draw with Gabon on October 17, 2023, and defeated Guinea-Bissau with a score of 1:0 on October 13, 2023.

Gambia Team

The Gambia team lost without a chance to Senegal with a score of 0:3 in the Africa Cup of Nations match. The first goal was scored by Gueye in the 4th minute after a pass from Sadio Mane, then Kamara doubled the lead in the 52nd minute after a pass from Sarra, who also scored his second goal in the 86th minute after a pass from Ndiaye. From the 45th minute, Gambia played short-handed following Adams' ejection. Despite only having 31% possession of the ball, they made 12 shots, 2 of which were on target.

Before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations, the Gambia team faced a number of problems. Several players fainted due to a lack of oxygen in the plane, shortly after takeoff the pilot had to make an emergency landing. In addition, the Gambians boycotted the training due to unresolved financial issues after reaching the final stage of the tournament. These factors negatively impacted the morale of the team coached by Tom Saintfiet. The Gambia squad includes well-known players such as Omar Colley from Besiktas, strikers Musa Barrow and Abli Jallow, as well as Genk player Aliu Fadera and Feyenoord winger Yakuba Minte.

The last matches of the Gambia team before the Africa Cup of Nations were unsuccessful. In the World Cup 2026 qualifiers on November 20, 2023, they lost to the Ivory Coast with a score of 0:2. On November 16, 2023, in the World Cup qualifiers, the team lost to Burundi with a score of 3:2, and on September 10, 2023, in the CAN qualifiers they drew with Congo 2:2.

Head-to-Head

In the 1/8 final of the Africa Cup of Nations, which took place on January 24, 2022, the Gambia team beat the Guinea team with a score of 1:0. The winning goal in this match was scored by Barrow in the 71st minute of the game.

Prediction for the Match Guinea - Gambia

This match is crucial for both teams. I think, neither will go all out in the attack, I'm trying a bet on the total goals under 2. The Gambians are looking fairly weak so far, Guinea held their own against a problematic Cameroon, but against a more competent Gambia, they might have difficulties.
