Worth mentioning: Guinea lost their two friendlies prior to the opener of their Africa Cup of Nations campaign. The team is without a win in their last five outings and managed to score just four goals in the process and never more than one in a game. Only the most recent of those matches featured over 2,5 goals, while three saw both involved sides finding the back of the nets.
Much like their next opponents, Madagascar are without a victory in their last five encounters, but were able to earn just one draw in the process. Their matches were much more interesting for the viewers though, as three produced over 3,5 goals and each of those also witnessed goals at both ends.
