Mali will be looking to reach the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 2013 when they play Burkina Faso in the last 16 on Tuesday.

The Malians finished first in Group E with five points from three games to qualify for the knockout round of the AFCON for the ninth time in their history. Les Aigles have never won this tournament and having been knocked out in the round of 16 in each of the last two editions, they will be determined to win on Tuesday.

Burkina Faso meanwhile finished second in Group D with four points to qualify for the knockout stages of the AFCON for the fifth time in their history. The Stallions, like Mali, have never won this tournament, but the Burkinabé have reached the final once, in 2013 and the semi-finals in each of the last two editions.

Mali vs Burkina Faso Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

Mali have built their success so far at this tournament on a solid defence. The Malians have conceded just one goal in their three games so far, and in AFCON qualifying they kept four clean sheets, conceding just two goals.

Burkina Faso enter Tuesday's game on a run of two consecutive games without a clean sheet, but have not done too badly defensively in recent competitive matches. Hubert Velud's side conceded under 1.5 goals in four of their last six competitive fixtures, and as many games ended with under 2.5 goals

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

Burkina Faso head coach Hubert Velud was forced to make an early substitution against Angola last time out as Cedri Badolo was forced off injured at half-time.

The midfielder was replaced by Djibril Ouattara, who will be delighted to make his first start at the AFCON finals on Tuesday, but Sacha Bansé is also an option.
