Bafana Bafana to Impress
This is a game that many teams usually go into on a light note without so much attachment. However, considering the performance of the two teams, this could turn out to be an exciting playoff match for both the fans and the neutrals.
Backing Bafana Bafana not to lose is a bold tip and one that is quite risky when combined with another goal market.
Looking at the head-to-head, South Africa have the edge with three wins compared to one win for the Congolese side.
There are no clear favourites. However, based on what the Bafana Bafana have shown in the past year, they should do enough to avoid a defeat against the Leopards.
Bet 1: South Africa win or draw & under 3.5 @ 1.99 with Bet9ja
South Africa’s forwards to make their mark
South Africa and Hugo Broos made a memorable run in this competition. They aim to finish on a high against another side that has also exceeded expectations.
Bafana Bafana have an edge in the head-to-head and they might just rely on that as they go up against Sébastien Desabre’s side in Abidjan.
Hence, we are settling for South Africa to score in this South Africa vs DR Congo predictions piece.
Bet 2: South Africa to score 0.5 @ 1.41 with Bet9ja
Fast start in Abidjan
Goals have come aplenty in this competition and we think this match-up could be an open one.
The odds on offer for a goal to happen in the first half aren’t bad and have been one of the valuable tips in this particular tournament.
Hence, backing a first-half goal in this South Africa vs DR Congo predictions piece is a reasonable expectation.
Bet 3: First half over 0.5 goals @ 1.42 with Bet9ja
Both teams to find the net
This match is a decider and only goals can determine the outcome. DR Congo know a win is very important to them, so they need to attack.
Meanwhile, South Africa have been quite pragmatic in their games. Yet, the suspension of Grant Kekana may force Broos to alter things in his backline.
The managers are expected to make changes, such as giving some fringe players playing minutes. This could lead to the match being more open.
Both sides might want to be more cautious, but a GG is very much possible.
Bet 4: GG @ 1.86 with Bet9ja
