DR Congo vs Tunisia - Competition: Africa Cup of Nations, Group B

DR Congo record in the year 2015 is actually pretty nice, because they have not lost a game so far. Even after two games at the Africa Cup of Nations they could stay unbeaten in. Still they won’t be too happy, cause theres no win on their side in these last games. In group B they collected 2 points (1:1 against Zambia, 0:0 against the Cape Verde Islands). Still they have the chance to advance to the next round, but to do so they would need a win against Tunisia to be safe. With a X in the next game, and a win by the Cape Verde Islands against Zambia they would fall back to the 3rd position. Therefore they will do anything to get the 3 points in the last match. Especially in the offense they still have to improve with only one goal scored so far at the Africa Cup.
Tunisia team already stands with one foot in the quarter final of the Africa Cup of nations. Especially after match day 2 in group B they seem to have the best chances for advancing. The reason is their close 2:1 win against Zambia on match day 2. Nevertheless this last meeting was not an easy game for them with a 0:1 leg in minute 59. Still they did not need to much time to find the equalizer. This happened 10 minutes later but the crucial 2:1 was scored late, in minute 88 by Yacine Chikhaoui. After the 1:1 in their kick off match against the Cape Verde Islands and the win against Zambia they have 4 points on their side, one more draw and they stand in the quarter final of the Africa Cup of nations. They will try to stabilize the defense and not to concede a goal in the best case, but with Congo desperate for a win, they could get some space for counter attacks in this last group stage match.

Match date: 26 January 2015
Kick Off Time: 18:00 GMT
