Burkina Faso had a difficult group stage. They started with a 2-1 loss to Cameroon, but then the victory against Cape Verde and the draw against Ethiopia allowed them to take second place in Group A and advance to the round of 16. With great players such as Traore and Tapsoba, they are favorites to win this game.

In the case of Gabon, they finished second in their group after beating Comoros 1-0 and drawing 1-1 with Ghana and 2-2 with Morocco. For this African Cup of Nations, they suffered the sensitive absence of Aubameyang, who despite being ready to play for his country after recovering from COVID-19, had heart problems detected and therefore decided not to play. Without him, Gabon will of course be a less strong team, but they still hope to surprise Burkina Faso.
