Mauritania vs Gambia prediction

Mauritania’s run of form since qualifying for the AFCON tournament has left something to be desired. After the joy of qualification, the Mauritanians found themselves eliminated from their African World Cup Qualifying group before going out in the group stages at the Arab Cup.

Now, with just one win in six games, it’s little surprise to see Didier Gomas Da Rosa’s side listed as the betting underdog for this afternoon’s game vs Gambia.

The nation of Gambia may be making its first-ever appearance at the African Cup of Nations but is certainly the form team heading into this match, having won three and drawn one of their last six games in all competitions en route to the tournament.

The Scorpions did struggle to contain New Zealand’s Burnley powerhouse Chris Wood in a hastily arranged final warm-up game after Algeria pulled out due to COVID. Gambia lost that one 0-2, with Wood scoring both goals for the visitors.

But, against African opposition, Gambia have been on a roll of late, most recently beating Niger and Togo during World Cup qualifying.

Based solely on current form, it’s hard to look past a simple WIN bet on the Gambia this afternoon, and, at 888sport, you can bet on exactly that at odds of 6/4.
