    Afcon Group B table

    Before we go, a look at the Group B table. Tunisia are very much in the box seat - the other three sides will probably (though not necessarily) have to win their final group match to advance.

    Cape Verde v DR Congo match stats

    The possession was evenly shared but the stats show that Cape Verde created the more chances and will be the more disappointed of the two sides with a draw.

  4. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    So, Cape Verde and DR Congo are still in with a shout of qualifying, but both sides will have to improve rather markedly on that drab performance.

    Cape Verde dominated the first half but and might have nicked the points at the end of a more even second period but for some excellent goalkeeping from Robert Kidiaba. They will rue a lack of cutting edge.

    DR Congo flickered intermittently, most notably through Cedrick Mabwati, but overall they were disappointing and it was an especially bad night for their Premier League stars. Captain Youssouf Mulumbu was stretchered off in the first half, and Yannick Bolasie was hooked midway through the second after a lacklustre performance.


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    All over in Ebebiyin. Cape Verde had the better chances, but two excellent late saves by DR Congo keeper Robert Kidiaba preserve a share of the points for the Leopards.

  6. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Cape Verde's Babanco is down receiving treatment on his ankle after a nasty collision. In fact, the stretcher is out - he becomes the second captain to be stretchered off in this match.

  9. CLOSE!

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Another huge chance for Cape Verde. DR Congo's defenders go Awol as Cape Verde counter at pace, Babanco plays in Heldon down the right, he cuts inside his man and pulls the trigger but Robert Kidiaba smothers brilliantly.

    "A few of the neutral supporters have had enough and are heading for the exits but there are still some trying to keep the dancing going - lined up behind one another dancing among the seats conga-style."

  12. CLOSE!

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    From which Cape Verde so nearly score! The ball is whipped in by Heldon, Fernando Varela meets it at the near post with a firm header, Robert Kidiaba cam only palm it out towards Gege but the keeper recovers brilliantly to deny the centre-back just as he seems certain to tuck away the rebound. Terrific goalkeeping from the pony-tailed 38-year-old.

  13. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Babanco gets Heldon away down the right with a great ball. He wins a corner for Cape Verde...

  14. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Cape Verde were much the better side in the opening half but they've lost their spark in the second period and they just don't seem willing to commit forward in numbers. Odair Fortes brings the ball down the right but he has no support and the move dies.

  15. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    BBC Sport's Nick Cavell in Ebebiyin

    "The DR Congo fans and band to my right haven't stopped since the first whistle - shame that it is not inspiring the players at the moment. Both teams are really lacking any sort of quality in the final part of the pitch and there have been lots of poor final balls."


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    This game could do with a bit of quality - perhaps Platini can provide it? The familiarly named Cape Verde midfielder enters the fray in place of Tavares.

  17. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Remember, a draw here will leave both these teams on two points. They'll be far from out of contention, but will probably need to win their final match. Can either of them snatch victory in the closing stages here?

  18. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Cedrick Mabwati has been a real live wire for DR Congo in the second half - the game's best player. He twists and turns his way towards the byline on the left and stands up a good cross into the six-yard box, which Gege oh-so-casually chests back to his keeper. Veins of ice.


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    This game is drifting aimlessly towards a 0-0. Odair Fortes is introduced for Cape Verde in place of Ryan Mendes - can he spark it into life?

  20. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Heldon shows quick feet down the left and swings in a cross towards Ryan Mendes. Mendes does really well to turn and retrieve the slightly wayward ball, but he then tries a shot from an impossibly tight angle and blasts it harmlessly over.

  21. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Tavares surges into the penalty area and brings a good save from Robert Kidiaba at his near post. The corner is cleared by DR Congo.


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    That's the end of a disappointing night's work for Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace. Jeremy Bokila is on in his place.

  23. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Heldon, incidentally, has four goals in his last four matches for club and country. Cedrick Mabwati is the man causing problems at the moment though, and he wins a free-kick for DR Congo. It's not dealt with convincingly by Cape Verde, but they clear the danger eventually.


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Heldon, Cape Verde's goalscorer in their last match, replaces winger Kuca, who has put in a good shift. A straight swap that one, you would think.

  25. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    DR Congo are on top now. A good passage of play ends with Jean Kasusula sending a searching cross into the area which Vozinha does well to punch clear. He goes absolutely postal at his defenders.

    Cedrick Mabwati does really well to nip in and pick off a poor pass out of defence from Kuca and burst into the penalty area, but he can't work the keeper from a tight angle. Better from DR Congo though.

    DR Congo have started more positively in this second period. A cross from the right is only half-cleared by Cape Verde and Chancel Mbemba lets fly, but it's well wide.

  32. KICK-OFF

    "Plenty of gentlemen prodding and poking the pitch at half-time - it has now hosted three and a half matches and another three and a half to go. I 'm sure the groundsman is most happy that there aren't any more back-to-back games here in Ebebiyin.

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    BBC Sport's Nick Cavell in Ebebiyin


    "Not as exciting as the first half of the opening Group B match here in Ebebiyin today - there have been a few chances for both sides but they have also both lacked quality in the final third. Cape Verde captain Babanco came closest for his side with a free-kick from outside the area that flew wide; Yannick Bolasie and Cedric Mabawati with DR Congo's best efforts. Losing Youssouf Mulumbu could prove a big blow to DR Congo - his control of the midfield could be missed in the second half. Bolasie is desperate to impress and there's a danger he might end up trying too hard."

    Robert Kidiaba

    "DR Congo keeper Robert Kidiaba, at 38, is the oldest man at this tournament - not that you'd know it the way he throws himself around. Waiting to take his place when he retires after these finals is Parfait Mandanda - he is on the bench tonight - his older brother Steve does the same for France - and guess what! There are another two Mandanda brothers who play football too - and yes they are goalkeepers too!"


    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Cape Verde v DR Congo action shot

    Goalless at the break. Cape Verde have had the better of proceedings, but they have lacked a cutting edge in front of goal. DR Congo were very poor - and they have big worries over skipper Youssouf Mulumbu, who went off injured after 20 minutes.

    A rare foray into opposition territory for Cape Verde, and Yannick Bolasie comes to life. He cuts infield off his wing, knocks it past one defender, and tests Vozinha with a crisp shot.

  42. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    DR Congo are under the cosh here, and they haven't really been able to get Yannick Bolasie into the game at all. Defender Cedric Mongongu has certainly seen plenty of action - and his latest contribution is to acrobatically hack clear a searching cross by Kuca.

  43. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    And again Babanco's delivery creates a chance from the set piece. Tavares gets a head on it at the back post, and the ball just squirts wide off a DR Congo defender.

  44. Post update

    Issama Mpeko

    DR Congo have to be careful here. They have given away a lot of fouls - this time it's substitute Nelson Munganga bringing down Nuno Rocha after good hold-up play by Cape Verde. Babanco's delivery is headed out for a corner by Issama Mpeko.

  45. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Another teasing free kick from Cape Verde. It's whipped in by Kuca, DR Congo keeper Robert Kidiaba goes flying and misses it completely, and he's lucky to see it elude the Cape Verde attackers and run out for a goal kick.

  46. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Kuca spurns a great chance for Cape Verde. He's in acres of space when played in down the inside-left channel, tries to skip around Joel Kimwaki, but the defender does really well to recover and get a good block in.

  47. Did you know?


    Manchester United winger Nani, on loan at Sporting Lisbon, was born in Cape Verde but opted to play for Portugal, the country where he grew up.

  48. Post update

    DR Congo meanwhile are struggling to find the same sort of quality in their passing. Another long diagonal in search of Cedrick Mabwati is pumped straight out of play.

  49. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    That's the best chance we've had so far. Babanco whips in a great free-kick for Cape Verde, Kalu steals in round the back but plants his header straight at Robert Kidiaba.

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Cape Verde's Tavares - not to confused with the disco act of the same name who had a hit in 1976 with 'Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel' - cuts in from the right and finds a pocket of space but scuffs his shot horribly.

    Nelson Munganga is on in place of Youssouf Mulumbu. He's not quite as illustrious as the skipper - in fact he doesn't even have a Wikipedia page.

  56. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Youssouf Mulumbu's goose is cooked here. The DR Congo skipper is down again clutching his hamstring and he won't be able to continue. That's a big blow for DR Congo (and maybe West Brom) - is that his tournament over?

  57. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    A hefty challenge from Stopira, named after former France striker Yannick Stopyra, gives DR Congo a free-kick near the corner flag. The delivery is headed out towards the edge of the box, then lofted back in, punched by keeper Vozinha and finally thrashed into Row Z. Not much quality on show so far.

  58. Post update

    Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo

    Dieumerci Mbokani turns smartly in midfield and is flattened by Cape Verde's Ryan Mendes. Free-kick, but it's taken short. Eventually a long ball is lumped forward towards Cedrick Mabwati but it skids out of play.

  73. Leopards on the prowl

    Yannick Bolasie

    DR Congo's qualifying story could not have been more different. They were the last team to book their place in Equatorial Guinea, only doing so courtesy of the 'lucky loser' slot reserved for the best third-placed team.

    But there are legitimate reasons for Florent Ibenge's side to be optimistic. They have proven Premier League quality in captain Youssouf Mulumbu of West Brom and winger Yannick Bolasie (pictured) of Crystal Palace.

    Not only that, they looked decent in their opening match, having the better of a 1-1 draw with Zambia. A win tonight would give them every chance of making the knockout stages for the first time since 2006.

  74. Islanders looking to upset odds

    Cape Verde football team

    Cape Verde are the smallest nation at this tournament, but they certainly punch above their weight on the football pitch. Not only are they ranked inside the world's top 40 international teams, they were also the first side to secure their qualification for Afcon 2015, topping Group F ahead of Zambia, who we saw in action earlier.

    They acquitted themselves decently in their first match, securing a 1-1 draw with Tunisia. Can they go one better against DR Congo and put themselves in a great position to progress to the Afcon knockout stages for only the second time?

  76. Post update

    An African Football Confederation (CAF) spokesman has been speaking about some of the problems surrounding this hastily relocated tournament in Equatorial Guinea.

    On fans clashing with police in Bata, he says that this is a small issue when fans arrive very close to kick-off. In that kind of rush, police have to do their work security checks and medical control. This small issue happens often at other major tournaments like the World Cup in Brazil.

    On overcrowded stadiums, he says they are selling the right number of tickets but fans are moving to stand with their fellow supporters even though that's not where their seats are. "Usually you would map out three to four months before and clear areas where fans would sit. We are working in a smaller time frame and doing the best we can."

    Looking back, you have to say that match turned on the moment that Zambia's Emmanuel Mayuka missed a great chance to score after 68 minutes. He should have made it 2-0, but instead he scuffed his effort, had to be taken off injured, and while Zambia were down to 10 Tunisia bundled in an equaliser that changed the momentum of the match.

    Zambia 1-0 Tunisia

    Tunisia coach Georges Leekens had to make a change, and he does. Wahbi Khazri is off, Mohamed Ali Moncer is on.

  108. CLOSE!

    Zambia 1-0 Tunisia

    It's Zambia who are coming on strong though. Lubambo Musonda is the latest to go close, shimmying into space on the edge of the area and rippling the side netting with a fierce strike.

    Will that goal bring Tunisia out of their shell? They've been really disappointing for the tournament's second highest-ranked team...

    Zambia 1-0 Tunisia

    Goodness me, it should have been 2-0. Tunisia centre back Aymen Abdennour comes charging out of defence to tackle Evans Kangwa, completely misses him, and allows the winger to drive into the area. Kangwa has time but doesn't get the ball out of his feet ad scuffs his shot horribly wide.

  111. GOAL

    Zambia 1-0 Tunisia - Mayuka

    Zambia lead deservedly, and it's their main dangerman Rainford Kalaba who has created the goal. He picks the ball up on the edge of the area, shows great skill to dink it delicately into the area and then flip it over the head of the Tunisia defenders towards the back post, where Emmanuel Mayuka is there to slam the bouncing ball into the roof of the net. He celebrates with a few casual backflips.


    Zambia 0-0 Tunisia

    Rami Bedoui winds up another Rory Delap-style long throw for Tunisia, and there are big appeals for a penalty when the ball breaks loose as Emmanuel Mbola takes a huge swipe at Youssef Msakni. That looked a very good shout - Zambia have got away with one there.

    Teddy Fleuridon: It's too early to hand over the title to Algeria or Senegal, they're still to prove they are the strongest squads.

    Given Singuluma tries Zambia's umpteenth shot from distance, but once again it's straight at keeper Aymen Mathlouthi.

    Zambia 0-0 Tunisia

    Rainford Kalaba almost fashions another scoring opportunity, as Emmanuel Mayuka plays a delicate little pass inside Tunisia defender Rami Bedoui down the inside-left channel. The defender just shows enough strength to hold off Kalaba and clear the danger.


    Zambia 0-0 Tunisia

    Tunisia almost get in behind down the right as Yasine Chikhaoui and Wahbi Khazri exchange passes, but Zambia snuff out the danger. The referee calls play back, having played advantage, and books Rainford Kalaba for a foul on Rami Bedoui.

    Zambia 0-0 Tunisia

    Lubambo Musonda

    Tunisia give it away cheaply and Zambia have a chance to counter through Lubambo Musonda, but he picks the wrong pass. Can somebody take this game, and this group, by the scruff of the neck?

  118. KICK-OFF

    Zambia 0-0 Tunisia

    Back up and running in Ebebiyin. No changes at the break for either side. Can Zambia build on their first-half dominance?

    Nuren Ahmed: Senegal are the dark horses, but whoever beats Algeria will definitely win the tournament.

    Francis Macdoe Ezeamadi: I would have loved Nigeria to carry it if they had qualified, but since they didn't I would say Ghana all the way.
