The qualifiers for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations continue next week and will see Sierra Leone face Guinea-Bissau at the Stade Général Lansana Conté on Monday.

Sierra Leone kicked off their qualification campaign on the wrong foot, losing 2-1 to Nigeria. The Leone Stars took an early lead via a Jonathan Morsay header before their opponents completed a comeback before the break.

Sierra Leone will be looking to bounce back from their latest result and pick up their first win of the qualifiers as they target back-to-back appearances at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Guinea-Bissau, on the other hand, kick-started their qualifiers with a solid win on Thursday as they came from behind to beat Sao Tome and Principe 5-1. With the scoreline level at the break, Baciro Cande's men displayed impressive ruthlessness in front of goal in the second-half to pick up a well-deserved three points.

Guinea-Bissau sit top of the group with maximum points and will be looking to make it two wins from two when they take on the Leone Stars on Monday.

Sierra Leone vs Guinea-Bissau Head-To-Head
