Starting XI: Burkina Faso v Gabon
Africa Cup of Nations - Group A
Teams: Burkina Faso v Gabon
Date: 17 January 2015
Venue: Estadio de Bata
Burkina Faso get their Afcon campaign underway with a clash against Gabon at Estadio de Bata on Saturday night.
The Match is scheduled to get underway at 21h00.
The Stallions went all the way to finals in 2013 but lost 1-0 to the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the final at FNB Stadium.
And it was Gabon who topped the Group C standings, followed by Burkina Faso, one point adrift.
The two sides have already met during the qualifying round, with Gabon winning the first clash 2-0, before drawing 1-1 in the reverse fixture.
Stallions coach, Paul Put, has a lot of European based players at his disposal, with Jonathan Zongo plying his trade in La Liga with Almeria, while the Traore brothers, Alain and Bertrand, are situated in the French Ligue 1 and the Dutch Eredivisie respectively.
Gabon, meanwhile, ended the qualifying campaign unbeaten and head coach Jorge Costa will be hoping Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can bang in the goals for his side.
Here's how they line up:
Burkina Faso: Sanou, Koffi, Koné, Bambara, Yago, D. Koné, Kaboré, B. Traoré, Alain Traoré, Pitroipa, Zongo
Gabon: Ovono, Palun, King, Ecuele Manga, Obiang, Poko, Madinda, Ndong , Evouna, Bulot, Aubameyang
Burkina Faso's next Group A clash against Equatorial Guinea on 20 January 2015, will be broadcast on SuperSport 4 at 18h00.
