Zimbabwe vs Guinea – Match Preview

Zimbabwe vs Guinea – Team Previews
Zimbabwe were left empty-handed for the second match running following a narrow 2-1 defeat to the Flames of Malawi at the Kouekong Stadium on Friday.
The Warriors made a bright start to the game and took the lead through Ishmael Wadi, only for Gabadinho Mhango to turn the tie on its head with goals in either half.
That defeat leaves Norman Mapeza's men bottom of their group as they remain the only team in Group B yet to pick up a point so far.
Only a victory would suffice for Zimbabwe on Tuesday and anything less than that would mean another premature end to an AFCON campaign.
With so much at stake, Mapeza will be tempted to make some alterations to his starting XI in a bid to get his team firing again.
Knowledge Musona has been a huge disappointment across the first two matches and would need to rediscover his form as his side enters the last chance saloon to save themselves.
Predicted lineup; Petros Mhari; Onismor Bhasera, Teenage Hadebe, Gerald Takwara, Takudzwa Chimwemwe; Kelvin Madzongwe, Kundai Benyu, Knowledge Musona; Tino Kadewere, Bruce Kangwa, Ishmael Wadi
Guinea secured a hard-fought in their second group-stage clash against Senegal on Friday which ended goalless.
Kaba Diawara's men were under the cosh for major parts of the game in Bafoussam but remained resilient over the course of the 90 minutes.
The National Elephants remain joint-top in Group B heading into Tuesday's game which they can afford to take their foot off the gas a bit for.
Jose Kante sat out his side's last outing for unknown reasons and Guinea might have to make do with the forward's absence once again.
This could see Morgan Guilavogui retain his place in attack after he was handed what was only his fourth international cap against Senegal.
Predicted lineup; Aly Keita; Issiaga Sylla, Ibrahima Conte, Mohamed Camara, Saidou Sow, Ibrahima Cisse; Naby Keita, Amadou Diawara, Ilaix Moriba; Morgan Guilavogui, Mohamed Bayo
