South Africa vs DR Congo prediction
South Africa left spitting feathers, their dreams of reaching the AFCON final shattered on penalties in a heart-wrenching semi-final. Despite displaying moments of brilliance against Nigeria, Bafana Bafana was guilty of lacking cutting edge when it mattered most. But let’s not forget their impressive run up until that unfortunate loss to Nigeria. Hugo Broos’ men stayed unbeaten in their last four games, showcasing their perseverance and determination as two-time AFCON winners. Their defense has been solid, conceding only 3 goals in their six matches so far. With goalkeeper Ronwen Williams standing tall between the posts, they have proven to be a tough nut to crack. Now, they have one final shot at glory – a chance to claim the coveted Bronze Medal, and they will show up with good confidence.
DR Congo, the underdogs in this AFCON tournament, has had an impressive run so far. Despite their disappointment in the semi-final loss against Ivory Coast, they can hold their heads high to make it to this stage. Prior to that unfortunate defeat, DR Congo remained unbeaten in their last 5 games. This includes notable results against strong teams like Guinea, Egypt, and Morocco. Their ability to compete with these top sides shows that they are a force to be reckoned with. Although they missed out on a place in the final, DR Congo still has something to fight for – the bronze medal. This will undoubtedly serve as extra motivation for them going into the match against South Africa. With their solid performances throughout the tournament and their recent unbeaten streak, DR Congo will be looking to end on a high note by securing third place.
As we eagerly await the kick-off for this thrilling fixture between two talented sides vying for third-place honors at AFCON 2023, this could be anybody’s game. But with what is at stake, our South Africa vs DR Congo prediction leans toward a slow and cautious start.

Prediction 1: 1st Half Draw
South Africa, despite their unfortunate loss to Nigeria in the semi-finals, displayed glimpses of their defensive powers. However, they lacked cutting edge when it mattered most.

With both teams eager to secure a place on the podium with a bronze medal at stake, caution is expected from both sides during this encounter. The pressure of such an important match may lead to a cagey start where neither team wants to make any costly mistakes. Find the best odds for this market at Betboro!

Prediction 2: Under 2.5 Goals

While South Africa has conceded only 3 goals throughput the tournament, DR Congo, with a very tight backline has also conceded only 4 goals so far. With the pressure of securing a medal, we expect both teams to be cautious and not give away too many chances. This could result in a low-scoring affair, with both sides trying to avoid any costly mistakes. And we recommend the huge odds at Paripesa!
