Ghana’s Black Stars lock horns with the Panthers of Gabon as both sides go to their second match in Group C of the ongoing TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2021.
Today’s encounter between the Black Stars and the Panthers of Gabon will be the first encounter between the two nations at the Africa Cup of Nations history.
Gabon are looking to win consecutive Africa Cup of Nations games for the first time since a run of three in January 2012 when they Co-hosted the tournament with Equatorial Guinea.
Ghana have won just one of their last five group stage games at the Africa Cup of Nations (D2 L2), losing more in this run (2) than in their previous 12 such matches combined (W9 D2 L1).
After their 1-0 victory against Comoros, Gabon could keep clean sheets in their opening two matches at a single edition of the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 2010 (W1 D1).
After scoring a 16th minute winner in his first ever Africa Cup of Nations match against Comoros, Aaron Boupendza is looking to become the third Gabon player to score more than once in a single edition of the competition, after Brice Mackaya in 1996 (2) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (3 in 2012 and 2 in 2017).
