Match Preview

Ranked #49 by FIFA, two-time Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winners D.R. Congo (DRC) are massive favourites ahead of kick-off. However, six of their last eight matches have ended level (W1, D6, L1). Seven of those eight saw DRC score, while six yielded goals at both ends.
DRC’s form for stalemates has also been reflected in their recent AFCON results, with more than half (seven) of their last 13 tournament games ending as draws. Nine of those 13 saw goals at both ends.
Chasing a first-ever AFCON triumph, in just their second-ever appearance, Uganda (#80) face a huge task on paper. However, they will take comfort from their recent record on foreign soil, avoiding defeat in five of their last six matches away from home turf (W2, D3, L1).
The nature of Uganda’s recent games contrasts with that of DRC. Tellingly, Uganda have seen both sides score in just two of their last ten games (in all competitions, including friendlies), returning a record of: W4, D4, L2. Regardless, a return of just one goal from three AFCON games in the last edition bodes poorly for them.
Players to watch: DRC are yet to lose whenever Trésor Mputu has scored in internationals excluding friendlies (W7, D2). So too are Uganda yet to taste defeat in any competitive game featuring a goal from Emmanuel Okwi (W4, D1).
Stat attack: Five of DRC’s last eight matches (including friendlies) have ended with a 1-1 scoreline.
DRC are unbeaten in their last four AFCON openers (W2, D2).
Seven of Uganda’s last ten matches (including friendlies) have produced under 2.5 match goals.
Including friendlies, Uganda have conceded just one goal before half-time in their last ten matches.
Just one of the 11 previous H2Hs has seen the honours shared (W6, D1, L4).
