Eighth-finals out of the ordinary in Alexandria this July 7, with the selection of Madagascar, first group B, opposed to the DRC, miraculously first round. The novices stand in front of the survivors, with a sight in sight of a dream that seemed inaccessible there is little: reach the quarter-finals.
This CAN 2019 is not sparing, and even more so since the start of the knockout phase. After the elimination of Morocco against Benin, after the elimination of the champions of Cameroon, after the elimination of Egypt at home, place in the eighth finals considered the most unexpected, this Sunday, July 7th. At 18h Paris time (16h UTC), Madagascar is measured in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Barea, who play the first African Cup of Nations in their history, managed to finish first in Group B ahead of Nigeria (two wins, one draw). The men of Nicolas Dupuis are without complex and without fear, and no one takes them lightly. The DRC, however, has managed the feat of snatching a place of best third; after two defeats, the Leopards overturned by crushing Zimbabwe (4-0). The hoped-for miracle took place for the Congolese. So, Madagascar-DRC: Which nation will be in the quarter-finals of the big continental competition?
