Congo-Brazzaville will host Guinea-Bissau in their final 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier at the Stade Municipal de Kintele in Brazzaville on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 16h30 (CAT).

The Red Devils of Congo have already failed to qualify for next year's AFCON finals after recording only one victory in five matches.

As a result they are placed second on Group E standings with six points (same as third-placed Zambia) - four behind leaders Guinea-Bissau.

Pierre Lechantre's side are hoping to end their qualifying campaign with a victory and also finish second on the group standings.

Djurtus have already won group E and booked their place in next year's AFCON finals in Gabon. They will be making their debut appearance.

A win over Congo, will see Guinea-Bissau finish the qualifying campaign with 13 points having recorded four wins out of six games.

Experienced referee Bernard Camille from Seychelles will officiate the game between Congo and Guinea-Bissau on Sunday.
