South Africa vs D.R. Congo: Match Preview and Prediction
South Africa vs D.R. Congo: South Africa enters this match on the heels of a 1-1 Africa Cup of Nations draw with Nigeria. South Africa enjoyed 60% of the possession in that game and only one of their 14 total shots on goal was on target. Teboho Mokoena scored for South Africa in the ninety-first minute.
Over the course of the match, Nigeria’s opponents tried a total of fourteen shots on goal, but only one of them was successful. In the 67th minute, Nigerian goal scorer William Troost-Ekong led the team in scoring. After a nail-biting penalty shootout that ended with a score of 2-4, Nigeria emerged victorious.
DR Congo had 43% of the possession in that game and made seven efforts at goal, of which none were successful. Ivory Coast, on the other hand, had 14 total attempted shots on goal, only one of which was on target. Ivory Coast’s goal came from Sébastien Haller (65′).
DR Congo and the other team have scored comparatively few goals against each other in five of the previous six matches. During that time, the Leopards averaged just 1 goal per game, while the overall average was a pitiful 1.83. Of course, there’s no guarantee that this pattern will continue into the next game.
South Africa vs D.R. Congo: Betting Analysis
It is clear from their most recent findings that the South African defense has maintained a continuously high level of quality. Over the course of their most recent six matches, South Africa has only allowed three goals to get past their goalkeeper. This is a direct result of their penchant for austerity.
Following a lackluster showing in their most recent Africa Cup of Nations encounter against Ivory Coast, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and their supporters, who are traveling, will be hoping for a more favorable outcome in this match.
