Friday football bonanza in Africa is here as the continent’s premier football showpiece, Africa Cup of Nations continues and leading betting firm Mozzartbet is on hand to reward gamers with the biggest odds on offers across all betting platforms on victories for Ghana, Senegal and Besiktas.
Kick-off 10 pm
Star-studded Black Star of Ghana’s pains in the AFCON manifested in their opening group fixture when Carthage giants Morocco rocked the ship with a slim 1-0 victory.
Ghana needs a quick response against an erstwhile Covid-ravaged Gabon to place their round of 16 quest back on track.
Gabon on the other hand collected maximum points from group underdogs Comoros and look to guarantee entry into the next stage of the competition with a positive result tonight.
The team is boosted by the return of prolific goal scorer Pierre Emerick Aubameyang after the Arsenal star sat out the opening fixture due to Covid-19.
Ghana boasts of a good head to head record of three wins to two for Gabon. They are favoured to continue their superior form tonight.
Kick-off 4 pm
Group favourites Senegal face the trickiest match of the opening rounds when they play fellow West African Guinea in Friday’s earliest kick-off.
Both teams won the opening rounds registering similar 1-0 score lines over Zimbabwe and Malawi although alarms were raised after the Lions of Teranga boasting of very talented stars laboured to floor Zimbabwe.
Guinea did not have it easy with Malawi too but the ultimate top dog will be known today when the two clash.
Sadio Mane is one to watch for the Teranga Lions as the Liverpool man seeks to inspire his team to the knockout stage while Guinea has Issiaga Sylla to look up to.
Kick-off 8 pm
Turkish giants Besiktas are twenty points off league leadership and two places behind tonight’s opponents Gaziantep.
They are, however, tipped to defy the odds and carry the day as they play at home eager to close the huge gap between them and the leading pack.
With eighteen fixtures left before the season concludes, second place is attainable to Besiktas as current occupiers of the position Konyaspor is only ten points ahead.
That ambitious hike must start tonight with positive results. The two sides are poised equally in head to head meetings as they have both won twice and drawn once in their last five meetings. The fixture could be goal-laden as both teams give as good as they get.
