Group B's final fixtures take place on Monday with all four teams still in with a shout of progressing. Cape Verde Islands can guarantee their progress to the knockout stages with a win over Zambia. Having changed it up in the second game Rui Agares left out the goalscoring hero Heldon and started Julio Tavares through the center. The Islanders created plenty of chances without being able to score anything against Congo DR. Zambia must win to qualify, the 2012 champions are in real danger of missing out on qualification.
Zambia have taken the lead in both games thus far only to be pegged back, they simply must hold onto the lead if they are to make it to the knockout stages and they must hope that Tunisia dont lose to the Congo. With injuries to Mayuka and Singala the depth of the Zambian squad is being tested and I'm not sure they are going to come up with the goods here.
I've liked how the Cape Verde Islands have played in both games thus far and I think they will sneak a win here to get through to the knockout stages. The unders looks the bet again though, as it has for nearly all of this tournament.
