What’s at stake?
Plenty. Just about all of the games on this busy afternoon/evening will be vital in determining who finishes at the top of their groups and secures qualification for the World Cup finals.
Let’s start with Group E, where the big game see leaders Uganda take on second-placed Egypt in Alexandria. The Cranes would love a draw to consolidate their place at the top of the log, but don’t count out a revenge job from the Pharaohs.
Just two points separate all four teams in Group D, but host sides Burkina Faso and South Africa will back themselves to claim victories and open up a gap between them and their opponents, Senegal and Cape Verde respectively.
One of the best games on offer will come from Kinshasa, where DR Congo will look to draw level at the top of Group A with Tunisia. The Carthage Eagles won 2-1 in the teams’ first meeting in Rades on Friday and will head to Central Africa hoping to defend their lead position.
Group C will also take a clearer shape with likely wins for Ivory Coast and Morocco against Gabon (home) and Mali (away), while Algeria will hope to win in Constantine against Algeria and give themselves hope of catching Nigeria at the top of Group B.
And which players should I keep an eye on?
Ivory Coast cruised to a 3-0 away win over Gabon on the weekend thanks to a brace from Seydou Doumbia and it’s hard to look past the striker for his side’s home game against the Panthers in Bouake.
Egypt will need Mohamed Salah to step up for their return game against Uganda, South Africa’s Tokelo Rantie scored against Cape Verde on Saturday night and will hope to repeat the feat – only this time in a winning cause – and DR Congo’s Cedric Bakambu will look to inspire the Leopards in their crunch home game against Tunisia.

Ubong Emmanuel explained that ADP was a party out to salvage the country.
He said the party was the only one that “has come out boldly to give 35 per cents to both youths and women to participate in the next general elections.
“Th e structure that ADP has on ground presently can defeat every other parties, including the ruling party, APC and PDP.
Th e party is also participating in the Akwa Ibom local government council polls coming up in November.
“So, we are for grassroots youths and women that would change the country.
“Our people are dying in hunger, no industries in Akwa Ibom that would wake up the economy of the state and the governor is going to waste money in building a model Government House in Lagos, ADP is not in support of that”, he added
