Team News

Burkina Faso
Burkina Faso head into the game with a clean bill of health and no suspension concerns, meaning Malo has a full-strength squad at his disposal once again.

After an unconvincing display in the opening two games, Abdoul Tapsoba was an unused substitute in the game against Ethiopia last time out, but the Standard Liege man could come into the fold on Sunday.

Meanwhile, on the back of his side's solid display in the 2-2 draw with Morocco last time out, we expect Neveu to name a similar side on Sunday, meaning we could see Aaron-Salem Boupendza leading the line once again.
Burkina Faso possible starting lineup:
Koffi; E Tapsoba, Dayo, Yago, Kabore; Guira, Toure; Traore, Sanagre, Bayala; A Tapsoba

However, Gabon will be without the services of star forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has now withdrawn from the tournament and returned to Arsenal after a health issue.

In the absence of the 32-year-old forward, Allevinah has fared excellently at the attacking end of the pitch and the Clermont Foot man will look to add to his two goals at the tournament.
Gabon possible starting lineup:
Amonome; Oyono, Manga, Palun, Sambissa; Poko, Kanga, Obiang; Bouanga; Allevinah, Boupendza
Prediction: Burkina Faso 2-1 Gabon
