Venue: Bizerte

Preview:

Rwanda have an outside chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals, although fierce rivals DR Congo will be looking to scupper their plans.

"If there is one game we have to win it is this one," said Rwanda captain Desire Mbonabucya.

"Our fans have told us they don't mind if we don't qualify for the quarter-finals, as long as we beat Congo."

Mbonabucya, who was dropped for the previous game against Guinea, is expected to return to the starting line up.

But Rwanda's scorer against the hosts in their opening game, midfielder Joao Elias, is suspended after collecting a second yellow card.

DR Congo, whose hopes of qualifying ended when they lost their second match to Tunisia, are also without their captain Lomana Lua Lua.

The Newcastle striker is suspended after being sent off in that match against the Tunisia.

The match will also be coach Mick Wadworth's last in charge of the Congolese.

The former Huddersfield Town boss is not expected to renew his short-term contract when it ends on Sunday.
