REASONS FOR GABON VS GUINEA-BISSAU BETTING TIPS

Africa Cup of Nations 2017 gets underway with host nation Gabon up against finals debutants Guinea-Bissau at the Stade d’Angondjé in Libreville.

Coach Jose Antonio Camacho was only appointed as successor to Jorge Costa in November. The Spaniard is known to be a fiery character and he’s already had issues with regards to the set-up.

Gabon’s star player is unquestionably Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and he is also their captain to boot. The hopes of a nation rest largely on his shoulders, although the supporting cast shouldn’t be discounted either. The midfield options include Mario Lemina of Juventus and Didier N’Dong of Sunderland and Malick Evouna, currently plying his trade in China, is a more tan useful partner for Aubameyang in attack.

Although Guinea-Bissau are in their first African Cup of Nations finals and many are disregarding their chances on the back of a poor record, it should be noted that they won three of their last four games going into the finals and topped their qualifying group above Congo, Zambia (winners of the tournament in 2012) and Kenya.

The football authorities of the former Portuguese colony have also been busy finding and convincing players with a right to play for the country to commit to the cause. As a consequence, 17 of the 23 players in veteran coach Baciro Cande’s squad have five caps or fewer going into the finals.

There are obvious question marks over just how committed some of those selected will be and Guinea-Bissau are justifiably outsiders for the competition. However, there is a sense of the unknown about them and you would certainly expect them to be a team in full unison for their opening fixture.

Arguably the best known player in the Guinea-Bissau ranks is winger Toni Silva, who was on the books of Benfica, Chelsea and Liverpool as a youth, but is now at Levadiakos in Greece via spells with the likes of Northampton Town, Barnsley, CSKA Sofia and União Madeira.

Captain Bocundji Ca will sit in front of the back four and Zezinho is the man they will look to create chances, but they were dealt a major blow when Pacos de Ferreira striker Cicero (their main source of goals) was ruled out through injury just ahead of the tournament.

Anything other than a Gabon win would be a surprise here, but opening tournament games can be notoriously cautious and Guinea-Bissau will be set up to frustrate. Best odds of 4/9 on a Gabon victory with Skybet look too short under the circumstances. An alternative option is to back Gabon to Win to Nil at 21/20 with BetVictor.

If Guinea-Bissau can cope with the first 10-minutes or so, most of the action is likely to come after the interval, so backing the Draw/ Gabon in the Half-time/ Full-time market at 3/1 with Betway could prove profitable.

As suggested, goals could be at a premium, so backing Under 2.5 Goals at 4/6 with bet365 looks a decent shout too.

If looking for a Gabon v Guinea-Bissau Correct Score tip, then a 1-0 win for Gabon at 4/1 with Paddy Power (among others) might be worth a punt. A 2-0 win is on offer at 5/1 with William Hill.

Aubameyang is Evens with 888sport to be an Anytime Goalscorer or 13/5 with bet365 to be the First Goalscorer. Evouna might provide better value in the Anytime Goalscorer market at 5/2 with 888sport
