Equatorial Guinea will be looking to maintain their 100% record in Group A when they take on Zambia in their final group encounter on Sunday.
Nzalang Nacional have already secured their place in the AFCON quarter-finals after edging Libya 1-0 on the opening day of the tournament before consigning Senegal to an early exit with a 2-1 result earlier this week.
Zambia, meanwhile, will be looking to ensure their spot in the last eight as they currently lie second in the group with four points from two games. However, a draw would be good enough for Herve Renard's men, who are currently three points ahead of third-placed Libya.
On the team front, Equatorial Guinea will be without their inspirational captain Rodolfo Bodipo who is missing with injury while Lawrence Doe is suspended after his red card against Senegal.
Chipolopolo have no injury concerns to deal with and are set to welcome James Chamanga back to the fray after the striker managed to overcome an injury.
Coach Renard has, however, vowed to retain his faith in the XI that started in the 2-2 draw against Libya last time out.
