Football Betting Tips Zimbabwe vs DR Congo

The set up Zimbabwe against DR Congo prediction is linked with five units as an insert.
Zimbabwe – Statistics & Current Form
For Zimbabwe it was enough in the latest group match only to a 1-1 against Uganda. The result does not really help the Warriors. The missed chances from the game, such as the batting of captain Musona Knowledge in the second half, could take a bitter revenge. If now no victory against the DR Congo succeeds, the team of the 67-year-old coach Sunday Chidzambwa would have to cancel again in the preliminary round. No new fate, because so far Zimbabwe has never been able to qualify for the playoffs at the Africa Cup of Nations in the four participations. That the Warriors currently also have mold problems, was already at the recent COSAFA Cup clearly when only the third place jumped out. It was a competition that has always been won over the past two years. In addition, the timely scheduling before the African Cup could have ensured that the team is now a little lack of liveliness and speed. After all, the competition ran until early June and Zimbabwe completed three tournament games in a period of only one week.
In addition, the squad is comparatively weak and the few exceptions are currently not approaching their performance limit. An example is the mentioned Knowledge Musona. The 28-year-old is Zimbabwe’s strongest goal-getter, but he has not been able to prove his status at this year’s Africa Cup. However, this is hardly surprising, as Musona only kicked sporadically at his employer Sporting Lokeren this season and thus arrived at the national team with a poor match practice. Somewhat more secure is his strike partner Khama Billiat. This shot the so far only hits at the African Cup. At the same time, it was his second goal in retrospect to the recent five internationals. This is already a respectable value for the innocuous offensive on the part of Zimbabwe.
Expected lineup of Zimbabwe:
↪ Chigova – Darikwa – Lunga – Hadebe – Mudimu – Phiri – Karuru – Chawapiwa – Kamusoko – Musona – Billiat

DR Congo – Statistics & Current Form
The Democratic Republic of Congo had started with some lobes of praise in the Africa Cup of Nations. However, the team failed to live up to expectations. A defeat against Uganda and then a defeat against Egypt are as a result more than meager. However, the latest performance against the hosts can give some encouragement. In the match, offensive performance was much better than at the beginning. Even if no goal jumped out, at the end of the statistics showed no less than ten shots on goal more than the home side. The Congolese election also saw a significant increase in the number of attacks.
Numbers that do not help the Congo, as they ended up with a 0-2 draw on the scoreboard at the Cairo International Stadium. However, the squad is unquestionably better in comparison to the upcoming opponent. Unlike Zimbabwe, where most legionnaires play in the weak South African Premier Soccer League, the Democratic Republic of Congo has significantly more players in the stronger European leagues. Examples are the attacker Yannick Bolasie from the Belgian first division club FC Antwerp or defender Marcel Tisserand in the services of the German Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg.
Furthermore, coach Florent Ibenge can call on a normally very accurate striker in the guise of Cedric Bakambu. The 28-year-old stormed at the club level for Beijing Guoan and this with success: The fact that the club currently occupies the top spot in Chinese Super League, he owes not least the regular goals by the Congolese. Also in the qualification for the African Cup Bakambu was with three goals in four games, the most successful scorer. So far, however, the node has not burst with him yet. Instead, the leopard for captain Youssuf Mulumbu not only waiting for the first points, but also waiting for the first goals in the final round of the crown of African football.
