Congo DR vs Togo Prediction and Betting Tips | June 9th 2024

Congo DR v Mali - 2013 Africa Cup of Nations: Group B
Congo DR play host to Togo in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Sunday

Congo DR play host to Togo at the Stade des Martyrs in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Sunday. Paulo Duarte’s men have failed to win their opening game in Group B and will head into the weekend looking to end this poor run.

Congo DR failed to return to winning ways in the qualifiers as they played out a 1-1 draw with Senegal at the Stade Me Abdoulaye Wade on Thursday.

Before that, Sebastien Desabre’s side kicked off their quest for a place in the World Cup with a 2-0 win over Mauritania on November 15, four days before suffering a 1-0 loss against Sudan.

Congo will be backing themselves to bounce back this weekend as they take on an opposing side who have managed just one win in their last 12 meetings since January 1965.

Elsewhere, Togo were denied their first win in the World Cup qualifiers as they were held to a 1-1 draw by South Sudan on Wednesday.

Duarte’s men had kicked off their campaign with a 1-1 stalemate against Sudan on November 16, five days before playing out a goalless draw with Senegal on home turf.

With three points from three matches, Togo are fourth in Group B, one point and one place behind Sunday’s hosts.
