Mauritania vs Gabon betting tips: Africa Cup of Nations qualifier preview, predictions and odds


Mauritania vs Gabon match preview

It’s all to play for ahead of the final matchday in Group I, with this a straight-shootout for qualification in Nouakchott.

Hosts Mauritania are currently above Gabon by virtue of goal difference, so require just a draw to be sure of a spot at AFCON.

The Lions of Chinguetti swatted aside Sudan in their last outing in June, leaving them on the cusp of reaching a third Africa Cup of Nations on the spin.

Gabon meantime simply must win this one, having suffered back-to-back defeats in 2023, beaten 1-0 by the group’s bottom side Sudan in Omdurman, before DR Congo left Franceville 2-0 winners in June.

So, will Mauritania claim the required result at Stade Cheikha Ould Boïdiya, or can les Panthères pull off a victory on the road, thereby qualifying at their host’s expense?
