Mauritania vs Angola live

The action continues in Group D of the Africa Cup of Nations as Mauritania and Angola lock horns at the Stadium of Peace Bouake on Saturday.

The Palancas Negras picked up a huge point against group favourites Algeria in their opening game and will look to build on that result.

Mauritania, meanwhile, were denied a dream start to the 2023 AFCON as they fell to a 1-0 loss against Burkina Faso in their group opener on Tuesday.

Amir Abdou’s side have now failed to win their last five matches across all competitions, losing three and picking up two draws since October’s 2-1 friendly victory over Madagascar.

This poor run also sees Mauritania occupy fifth place in Group B of the World Cup qualifiers after picking up just one point in their opening two games.

Elsewhere, Al-Ittihad Alexandria forward Mabululu came up clutch for Angola as he netted his 68th-minute penalty to hand the nation a 1-1 draw against Algeria in Monday’s group curtain-raiser.

Pedro Goncalves’ men have now played out five consecutive draws in their last five outings, ever since their 4-0 friendly defeat against Iran on September 12.

Angola, who sit third in Group D, are currently 117th in the latest FIFA World Rankings, 12 spots below Saturday’s opponents.
