The horizon expands. About Mauritania we knew so far relatively little. This country is about three times as large as Germany, but has only about 4.3 million inhabitants and consists to a large extent only of desert. Sporty Mauritania has not appeared so far, neither in football nor anywhere else.
Football Betting Tips Mali vs Mauritania
For the first time, the lions of Chinguetti could now qualify for the African Cup. So Mauritania will no longer be a blank spot on football’s map. In the opening match, the Mauretanians meet their neighbor from Mali. As if opening the season in a debut at a continental championship would not be enough, it will be the derby of these two neighboring countries.
Although Mali and Mauritania are geographically right next to each other, both nations should separate worlds in footballing terms. The Eagles from Mali were third in 2012 and 2013 at the Africa Cup. Of course, it has not been enough for a big hit or even a World Cup participation, but on the black continent the team of Mohamed Magassouba is a big number. That is why, without going into too much detail, in the match between Mali and Mauritania we would make a prediction on the eagle.
The biggest success of the Mauretanians was the second place in 1995 at the Amilcar Cabral Cup, where you could keep the upper hand against Mali. Nevertheless, this team, who traveled to Egypt without stars, as a great outsider is not only in this game, but also generally in the Africa Cup. In a group with Mali, Tunisia and Angola, a maximum of third place should be possible, but could still be enough to progress.
Perhaps the lions of Chinguetti surprise us, but even before the kick-off to the derby between Mali and Mauritania, we would not give a tip on the entry into the round of 16 of the Mauretanians.
Mali – Statistics & Current Form
Based on the names the players from Mali are sometimes difficult, sometimes even indistinguishable. So are three gentlemen named Traore in the squad. Okay, the right-back is called Hamari by first name. But then there are two other actors who are neither relatives nor by marriage and listen to the name Adama Traore. It’s harder to tell these two apart. In the TV broadcasts, we can at least be based on the back numbers.
Let’s get back to the sporty aspect. Mali has not won in the last three preparatory games, but also played against Senegal, Cameroon and Algeria. These are three teams that can play for the title at the Africa Cup. Mali has held up well in all matches. Even if there was no victory, the latest results are more of an expression that could be expected to mail at the African Cup. Not only because of this, the duel between Mali and Mauritania will offer lower odds of Malian victory.
In the last test match the Eagles from Mali and the desert fox from Algeria faced each other. In an open game, they lost 2: 3. Nevertheless, the recent defeats have shown that the Malians seem to be reasonably well prepared in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Coach Mohamed Magassouba has long been keeping a secret about his squad. Only four days after his colleagues, he has announced the final squad.
With Molla Wague from Nottingham Forest and Amadou Haidara, whom we know from Leipzig, very interesting actors are in the squad. However, just the star of this team falls out. Yves Bissouma of Brighton & Hove Albion is unavailable due to injury. Another friend was not even nominated by the coach. Sambou Yatabare, who kicked off Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, has not found a place in the squad. The Eagles do not compete in the best way in the Africa Cup. Nevertheless, it would actually have to reach a victory in the opening game against the neighbors.
Expected formation of Mali:
↪ Mounkoro – M. Haidara, Fofana, Wague, H. Traore – A. Haidara, A. Traore, A. Traore, Djenepo – Marega, Diaby
↪ Trainer: Magassouba

Mauritania – Statistics & Current Form
With the expansion of the field of participants in the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 some teams were flushed into the tournament, of which one knows little in this country. Mauritania is such a team that you have not usually followed to the last detail. Most players have yet to make a name internationally. That’s why a national team comes to us, of which we know relatively little.
After all, the coach is not completely unknown. Corentin Martins has played 16 caps for the Equipe Tricolore and kicked for many years with Auxerre or La Coruna in the Champions League. Now he has gone to the football province as a coach and was able to celebrate his first big success with the qualification. Thus, Mauritania will be allowed to make its debut at the African Cup on Monday. The shape of the lions of Chinguetti is difficult to grasp. In the test matches, there was a 3-1 win against Madagascar and a 1: 3 defeat to Benin. That Madagascar is not really bad, we have already seen in the first group match at the African Cup.
It’s hard to say if that’s enough to fully judge the Mauretanians. It is true that not a single player has a higher market value than 500,000 euros. Some actors are still kicking in their homeland. Large parts of the squad will hardly be called professionals in the traditional sense. After all, you know Sally Sarr, who has been playing in Switzerland for many years and was able to develop a good name at least among the Swiss. He will also lead the Mauretanians as captain on the field.
“We want to show Mauritanian football from its best side. Although it will not be easy, we try to provide a surprise. ” – Corentin Martins
But that is not enough for us to make a positive prediction of a victory for the lions in the duel between Mali and Mauritania. Coach Corentin Martins also makes it clear that his team will be one of the very big outsiders in Egypt at the start. The Africa Cup is considered more than an imaginary voyage to present the Mauretanians, although the coach would not mind perhaps even bringing a surprise to Mali.
Expected lineup of Mauritania:
↪ Souleymane – Abeid, N’Diaye, Abou Demna, Sarr – Coulibaly, Camara, Diakite, Dellahi – Ba, Hacen
↪ Coach: Martins

Mali vs Mauritania Our Best Betting Tips Explained
Derbies have their appeal not only in club football. Even with the national teams, the rivalry is greater than if you would kick against an arbitrary team. Let’s just take Germany against Netherland as an example. Therefore, it is also special that Mauritania meets on its debut at the African Cup on the neighbors from Mali.
The Malians certainly have more quality in the team and should therefore be favored. However, the Eagles have not won for three games and could not develop self-confidence for the tournament. The lions of Chinguetti, however, are the great outsider. Therefore, in the game between Mali and Mauritania continues to speak a lot for a tip on the Malians.
Key Facts – Mali vs Mauritania tips
⭐️ Mali has not been allowed to celebrate victory in the last three internationals
⭐️ Mauritania participates for the first time in the Africa Cup of Nations
⭐️ In the last three direct duels Mauritania has not lost
Mauritania has not lost in the last three derbies and could turn out to be tough. To score points against the neighbors in the first tournament game would have its appeal. However, we see a lot more experience on the part of the Eagles, who did very well last time at the Africa Cup of Nations.
With this tournament experience and the greater quality in the squad, it should actually go out with a victory. We would therefore use the odds of winning the Eagles in the match between Mali and Mauritania. At 1.83, the odds are likely to be just the value, because we do not expect Mauritania to be clearly inferior in this game.
