Central African Republic are at home this coming Sunday, hoping to bag the full three points against Angola in a 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier.

Both sides are chasing the full three points, but the hosts are working hard to close the gap on leaders, Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Wild Beasts occupy second spot in Group B with seven points, and trail the Leopards by two points. A win will push them to the top provided DRC lose against Madagascar.

However, the hosts will find it difficult to avenge the 4-0 loss they suffered at the hands of the Palancas Negras in Luanda.

On the part of the visitors, Angola will go all out for a win to take their points tally to seven as they now have four.

They have won one match, drew one whilst losing two in their campaign thus far and a win could revive their hopes of reaching the continental showpiece.

The encounter is set to be staged at Complexe Sportif Barthélemy Boganda in Bangui. Kick-off is at 16h00 CAT on Sunday afternoon.
