Congo and Libya will both be looking to secure their place in the quarterfinals of the 2014 African Nations Championship when they meet in their final Group C tie at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday, kick-off at 19h00.

The Red Devils of Congo are currently in third place in the group with three points after bouncing back from their opening 1-0 loss to Ghana to beat Ethiopia 1-0 to keep their hopes alive.

Sebastien Migne’s side now have to collect maximum points against group leaders Libya on Tuesday to get past the group stage.

The Frenchman admits that this will be a difficult task but he believes his players will be confident following their win over the Walya Antelopes.

“It is good to win because victory brings mental strength and increase self-belief, something this team needs,” he said.

“We stand a good chance of qualifying now and although Libya is a very good youthful side we go out looking for victory.”

Libya on the other hand remain at the top of the group table with four points, after kicking off their tournament with a 2-0 win over Ethiopia before holding Ghana to a 1-1 draw.

Javier Clemente’s men will be under less pressure than their opponents as a draw will be sufficient to see them to the next round.

However, the former Cameroon coach believes they still need to put up a good performance in their last game to avoid disappointment.

“It is a good position to go into our last group match in but we know there is still a lot of work to be done before we can qualify to the next phase of the competition,” he stressed.

The other Group C match between Ethiopia and Ghana will take place at the same time at the Free State Stadium.
