WTW Ghana, Senegal, Gabon, Morocco, and more on January 14th

January 14, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
A quadruple header is on the cards as the 2021 AFCON tournament heads towards matchday two.

We're now into matchday two of the 2021 AFCON tournament, which means plenty of more games on tap for fans all over the world. Friday will be a very busy one, as there will be four - yes four! - matches played throughout the day, starting with Senegal vs. Guinea and concluding with Gabon vs. Ghana.

Here's all you need to know ahead of the next installment of matches taking place this Friday.

A quadruple header of matches taking place on Friday, January 14th

Senegal vs Guinea: Both Senegal and Guinea come into this game having won their respective fixtures, with Senegal narrowly edging out Zimbabwe 1-0 while Guinea defeated Malawi by the same score-line. However, it was hardly a vintage performance from Senegal, who needed a penalty from Liverpool star Sadio Mane to pick up all three points. As such, Aliou Cisse's side, who are viewed as one of the big favorites at this winter's competition, will need to step up their game if they want to secure a spot in the round of 16.

Meanwhile, Guinea will certainly be quite pleased with the outcome from their clash against Malawi and will be eying a chance at qualifying for the round of 16 for the second straight tournament. They'll also be looking to take advantage of a Senegal side who are missing several star players due to COVID-19, but they'll need to do much more if they wish to come out on top against a side who have won eight of their last 12 meetings.

Malawi vs Zimbabwe: Having lost their respective fixtures against Guinea and Senegal, both teams will be desperate for a much needed win here. Malawi were beaten 1-0 by Guinea while Zimbabawe were undone against Senegal thanks to a late, late penalty converted by Sadio Mane. Neither side have a great track record at this competition. Malawi, nicknamed the Flames by their supporters, have hardly shone brightly - they've yet to get out of the group stages in any of their prior AFCON appearances.

And Zimbabwe, commonly known as the Warriors, haven't been able to assert themselves in battle, as they haven't won a game at the AFCON since beating Ghana 2-1 in 2006. They have never kept a clean sheet in their past 12 games and have finished bottom of their group in all their prior appearances. However, when it comes to head to head, Zimbabwe have never lost to Malawi, with three wins and three draws from their last six games - and given Malawi's illness crisis, Zimbabwe just may have the edge they need here to pick up a long-awaited win.

Morocco vs Comoros: After successfully battling to a gritty 1-0 win over Ghana, Morocco will now turn their attention towards taking on debutants Comoros as they seek to book their spot in the round of 16. It was exactly the result they needed after suffering heartbreak in the Arab Cup as they lost on penalties in the quarter-finals to Algeria, who went on to win the competition outright. Comoros, meanwhile lost 1-0 to Gabon and will be hoping for a better result this time around at their first ever AFCON tournament.

Gabon vs Ghana: After an opening day defeat to Morocco, Ghana will be really keen on getting back to winning ways as they take on Gabon. With Morocco facing debutants Comoros, and clearly the heavy favorites in that contest, the Black Stars will need to get out of the blocks if they want to put themselves in good stead to qualify for the round of 16. 

Gabon, meanwhile have kicked off proceedings well, beating Comoros in their opener to pick up a vital three points. They'll also be hoping that star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will have bounced back following a bout of COVID-19 to lead the line in this clash.

Who's in and who's out

Here's a quick rundown of the personnel situation for Senegal, Guinea, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Morocco, Comoros, Ghana, and Gambia ahead of their matches at the 2021 AFCON tournament:

Senegal: Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy and Famara Diedhiou will all miss out due to COVID-19, while Saidou Sow and Ibrahima Conte should shake off knocks to feature here.

Guinea: Guinea has no injury, illness or suspension concerns ahead of this match.

Malawi: Malawi were hit really hard by the COVID-19 crisis, with Gabadinho Mhango, Richard Mbulu, Mark Fodya, Peter Cholopi, Lawrence Chaziya, Stanley Sanudi, Chikoti Chirwa, Charles Petro, and Robin Ngalande all missing out during the team's opener against Senegal. However, they've recovered some players, including Petro and Fodya, who've now tested positive, while they've added five more people - Brighton Munthali, Paul Ndlovu, Dan Chimbalanga, Gerald Phiri, and Stain Dave - to the squad.

Zimbabwe: Knowledge Musona and Kundai Benyu are in doubt for this game due to illness and injury respectively.

Morocco: Aymen Barkok and Ayoub El-Kaabi are both major doubts after testing positive for COVID-19.

Comoros: Kassim M'Dahoma is a doubt following an injury on matchday one.

Ghana: No injuries, illness, or suspension concerns for Ghana ahead of their game.

Gambia: Key man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may be involved here if he can post a negative result after missing out on matchday one due to a positive COVID-19 test.
