---------------------------------------------

Benin form (all competitions): DDLDLW

Benin came out on top in their opening qualifier courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 win over Madagascar at the Mahamasina Municipal Stadium on Thursday. In a game where clear-cut opportunities were at a premium, Steve Mounie broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute, and that proved to be the decisive moment in Antananarivo. Michel Dussuyer's men have now ended a barren run of five games without a victory, three of which came in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers where they finished third in Group L. The Squirrels now prepare for a first ever meeting against Congo DR on Monday before a second clash in quick succession eight days later.

Benin possible starting lineup:

Allagbe; Doremus, Hountondji, Adenon, Assogba; Alinvi, Adeoti, Kossi; Soukou, Mounie, Azankpo

Congo DR form (all competitions): WLLWLD

DR Congo were involved in a share of the spoils following a 1-1 draw versus the Taifa Stars of Tanzania at the Stade TP Mazembe on Thursday. Hector Cuper's men took in the lead in the 23rd minute through Dieumerci Mbokani, but parity was restored before the half-time whistle thanks to Simon Msuva. The Leopards, who are currently ranked as the 65th-best national team by FIFA, now seek to return to winning ways away from home where they have lost their last two games to Gabon and Tunisia. Monday's visitors failed to find the back of the net in both of the aforementioned matches, and they will be keen to get going at the attacking end.

Congo DR possible starting lineup:

Kiassumbua; Muzinga, Tisserand, Luyindama, Amale; Akolo, Mbemba, Moutoussamy, Bolasie; Bakambu, Mbokani

Betting Verdict:

The teams are renowned for not giving too much away, which should make for a cagey affair, and while we expect goals at both ends, we are also backing a share of the spoils with a point apiece for either side in the end.
