The AFCON quarter-final stage will take place this weekend as the likes of DR Congo would take on Guinea.

While Mali would battle the Ivory Coast. Whereas the Super Eagles of Nigeria would do battle with Angola.

With the matches lined up in the quarter-final stage amid the surprises expected, we look forward to the entertaining games slated this weekend as the case may be.

And on this note All news.ng evaluate the key matches to watch in the quarter-finals of the AFCON.

Nigeria vs. Angola


Nigeria's game against Angola has been the talk of the AFCON quarter-final as hostility ensures before both sides.

With the class of Gelson Dala, Mabululu, Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman expected to be on show, it promises to be a wonderful game to behold on Friday.

We look forward to seeing how both managers set up their teams ahead of the AFCON quarter-finals contest.

Cape Verde Island vs. South Africa

The fact that South Africa defeated one of the AFCON favourites Morocco is proof of the threat the Bafana Bafana side could pose further in this showpiece.


They managed their game to perfection to eliminate favourites Morocco and it would be nice to see how they handle surprise packages of the showpiece Cape Verde in this fixture.

Cape Verde on their own is tricky on another level and it remains to be seen if Hugo Broos’s men can overcome their tactics on the field of play.
