Live Update: DR Congo vs Congo
LISTEN JAN 31, 2015

The two countries divided by one river will compete in the first quarter-final clash at AFCON 2015. It is DR Congo versus neighbours Congo

DR Congo will be without injured skipper Youssouf Mulumbu, who also missed the final group game against Tunisia with a hamstring injury.

They qualified with three draws and know they must be more clinical to progress further in the competition.

Congo hope coach Claude LeRoy's two stints as DR Congo coach will give them some inside knowledge and an advantage.

LeRoy is in confident mood: "Our potential, talent, vigour make us a good bet for the semi-finals."

It will be the first meeting between the two neighbours in 41 years when Congo beat DR Congo (then Zaire) 2-1 in Alexandria, Egypt.

And historically there has been a frosty relationship between the two countries. There are many families separated on either side of the border and there are political difficulties.
