Cape Verde vs Mauritania: Africa Cup Of Nations Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Cape Verde will face Mauritania in the round of 16 at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium on Monday. Despite the presence of Egypt and Ghana in Group B, the Blue Sharks surprisingly emerged on top, while the Lions of Chinguetti made history by defeating 2019 champions Algeria to reach this stage for the first time. Cape Verde’s journey in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations shows their ability to secure results through various means. Their knack for scoring late in games showcases their resilience and goes well for knockout football.

For Mauritania, Monday’s match is a historic occasion as the Lions of Chinguetti play their first-ever knockout game at the continental showpiece. Amir Abdou is known to exceed expectations, previously led Comoros to the last 16 in the previous finals with an unexpected victory over Ghana. Abdou’s tactical expertise in coaching a compact side gives Mauritania a fighting chance against any opponent as they aim for a quarter-final spot.

Despite losing 3-2 to Angola, the Lions of Chinguetti have shown resilience by becoming the third team to progress to the knockout rounds despite losing their first two matches, following in the footsteps of DR Congo (2019) and Abdou’s Comoros (2021). Whether Mauritania adopts the compact approach from their tournament opener against Burkina Faso or a more attacking style as seen in the loss to Angola remains to be seen, but they should not be underestimated in tournament football.
