Guinea go into their final Group B match against Zimbabwe at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium on Tuesday, January 18 looking to secure top spot.

Kick-off is at 6pm CAT (SA, GMT+2)

Kaba Diawara’s side is in pole position and tied with Senegal on four points after beating Malawi 1-0 first up and holding the Lions of Teranga to a goalless draw last time out.

The National Elephants are expected to take all three points in Yaounde, having not lost to the team from Southern Africa in three previous meetings.

The Warriors have nothing to play for but pride as they are already eliminated from the Africa Cup of Nations after losing their opening two games against the Senegalese (1-0) and the Flames (2-1).

Norman Mapeza’s men will be hoping to break an unwanted record at the showpiece event; they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 AFCON outings – more than any other nation.

The two countries last did battle in September 2016, with the Guineans coming away 1-0 victors in a 2017 AFCON qualifier.
