Mali will face South Africa at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium on Tuesday in the opening round of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Eagles have been regulars at the Africa Cup of Nations in recent times, appearing in 10 of the last 11 editions of the tournament. In their last game, they demolished Guinea-Bissau 6-2, with six different players getting on the scoresheet including Salernitana’s Lassan Coulibaly, who scored his first ever international goal.
Mali are unbeaten in their last seven AFCON group stage matches and will be looking to continue that streak when they play on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, South Africa will return to the continental showpiece this week after missing out on the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon. They were in action last week, taking on Lesotho at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in a goalless friendly between the two teams.
Hugo Broose’s side were beaten 1-0 by Ivory Coast in 2019 and will be hoping for better luck this time around.
Mali possible starting lineup:
Diawara; H Traore, Niakate, Fofana, Sacko; Haidara, Coulibaly, Bissouma; M Doumbia, Sissoko, Koita
South Africa possible starting lineup:
