Congo will be aiming for three wins in Group D as they meet Angola in their final 2018 CAF African Nations Championship group match on Wednesday.

The Red Devils are confident heading to this clash as they have already booked a spot in the Last Eight, but will want their third win.

Under the guidance of coach Srdan Vasiljevic, Angola drew 0-0 draw against Burkina Faso and defeated Cameroon 1-0 – they now have four points.

On the other hand, they have a score to settle against the Red Devils as they have suffered five defeats at the hands of Congo, but have two wins and one draw out of their eight clashes.

The match will be stage at Stade Adrar on Wednesday, kick-off is at 21:00 (CAT).
