Congo DR vs Uganda Match Preview
Uganda finally ended their three-match losing streak across competitions as they beat Ivory Coast (0-1) ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations and they’ll need the team spirits on point early in the competition, meeting Congo DR for their Matchday 1 clash on Saturday afternoon.
Cranes have beaten Congo DR in both of their last two head-to-head clashes and will now have high hopes they can build on the tally, regardless of their struggles for consistency – where they saw a 3-0 Qualifiers loss in Tanzania as well as COSAFA losses to Lesotho and South Africa, both on penalties after draws.
Congo DR have, on the other hand, proven themselves a tough side to beat lately but just four draws and a win in their last five outings will hardly feel like a great boost to their confidence. They’ve been held off by both Burkina Faso (0-0) and Kenya (1-1) in June and will need more to overcome Uganda.
Leopards have been very tough defensively but the attacking line led by Anderlecht’s Yannick Bolasie and Beijing Guoan’s Cedric Bakambu still search for their consistency. Indeed, they’ve bagged just four goals on those five occasions and the experienced forwards will have to give more.
We don’t feel they’ll be able to do so early on, though, and we’ll now back Uganda to show off as a tough side to get past too. We’ll thus go for an enticing Double Chance – Draw or Uganda to win, which comes at 4/5 with bet365 and looks great value at this point.
We thus hope to see few goals at Cairo International Stadium and we’ll also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT, which seems like more of a banker bet at 7/10 with bet365 as both sides enjoy a defensive approach to their fixtures lately.
