Mali vs Burkina Faso: AFCON 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

In a bid to surpass their previous performances in the Africa Cup of Nations, Mali will face Burkina Faso in the round of 16 at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium on Tuesday. Mali topped Group E to qualify, while Burkina Faso advanced as the second-placed team in Group D.

Mali remains undefeated in the Africa Cup of Nations, showcasing adaptability and strong defense, conceding only one shot on target each in their last two matches after an initial six against South Africa. With a 2-0 win, a 1-1 draw, and a goalless stalemate, they topped their group. They haven’t trailed in the tournament and seek to uphold that against Burkina Faso. Despite historical dominance with seven wins and a draw in eight encounters, Mali is wary, having failed to progress past the round of 16 in the last four tournaments, with their best finish in 1972 as runners-up.

Burkina Faso, often seen as dark horses in the Africa Cup of Nations, have reached the semi-finals or final in three of the last five editions and aim to replicate that success. Despite a strong start with a 1-0 win over Mauritania, they faced setbacks, drawing 2-2 with Algeria and losing 2-0 to Angola. Concerns arose over their lack of attack and defensive weaknesses. However, their experience in reaching advanced stages in recent tournaments could be crucial, although their historical record against Mali is poor.
