Mauritania visit Equatorial Guinea this Sunday hoping to finish off the business away in Malabo.
The Mourabitounes lead Nzalang 1-0 from their, first round, first leg played on May 19 Nouakchott .
Mauritania coach Patrice Neveu said they have an uphill battle but hopes the teams’ one week training camp in Morocco after the first leg win has been sufficient in terms of team building ahead of the final leg on Sunday.
"I trusted my plans, it went well, but I still regret that we did not put that second goal that would have put everything heavily weighing in our favour," Neveu said.
Meanwhile, Nzalang are looking for their first home in competitive qualifiers since October, 2012 when they defeated DR Congo 2-1 in a 2013 Africa Cup qualifier at the same venue.
Since then, Equatorial Guinea have drawn 1-1 with Tunisia and lost 3-0 to Cape Verde at home in 2014 World Cup qualification.
