Congo DR vs Guinea: AFCON 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Congo DR has gotten to the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals despite not winning a game in regular time. Their next opponent is Guinea in Friday’s match at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium. The Leopards knocked out Egypt in the round of 16, while Syli National secured a victory against Equatorial Guinea, ending their losing streak in the tournament’s knockout stage.

Capitalising on Congo DR’s failure to win in regulation time, Egypt could have eliminated the Leopards but, in penalty kicks, Congo DR became the first Central African side to defeat the Pharaohs at this stage of the tournament. It was their first win in the knockout stage since 2015, and it came on the back of three games that required extra time and penalty kicks. Can the Leopards finally break the pattern, seize a decisive victory and recapture the form that took them to the semi-finals in Gabon in 2015?

However, Guinea’s emotional trip to the quarter-finals saw them break their knockout stage jinx when a last-gasp Mohamed Bayo header gave them all three points against a stubborn Equatorial Guinea. They are the sole representatives of Group C to reach the quarters, having scored only three times in four games. They hope their new-found mojo can get them to the semi-finals and perhaps a tallshowdown with either Mali. Or the hosts.
