Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in none of Gambia’s last seven games
  • Mali have kept clean sheets in seven successive matches
  • These two sides both won their opening group game 1-0

Mali keeping things tight

Mali are on a quite incredible run in defence, coming into this clash having kept seven consecutive clean sheets, meaning they have not conceded a goal since a 1-0 defeat to Tunisia in June.

Both teams have not scored in eight successive matches, and they surprised many by turning the tables in picking up a 1-0 victory over Tunisia in their opening group game.

In total, both teams have scored in just one of their last 16 matches, and only three of those games have contained more than two goals, with Mohamed Magassouba’s side responsible for 11 clean sheets during that time.

Gambia’s games lacking goals

Both teams have scored in only none of Gambia’s last seven games, and they have found goals slightly hard to come by in that time, netting just five times.

Tom Saintfiet’s side beat Mauritania 1-0 in their opening group game and are looking to reach the knock out stages for their first time in their history – and their strong defence may help them on their way.

They have kept four clean sheets in those seven games, including a pair of 1-0 wins over Toga and Angola, but this will be a tough test against a sturdy Mali side.

I predict both teams will not score in this game and that there will be fewer than three goals in the match, selecting 1-0 to Mali as the correct score prediction.
