Gabon will be looking to book their place in the knockout stages of the African Nations Championship when they take on Mauritania in their final Group D clash at the Free State Stadium.
Gabon drew 0-0 with Burundi in their opening CHAN fixture but followed that up with a 1-0 win over Congo DR.
The Panthers are currently second in Group D level on points with Burundi, a win would guarantee their passage into the quarterfinals, while a draw could see them advance, if Congo DR fail better their result.
