Heavyweights Morocco and Egypt clash tonight in Luanda, Angola on the final day of 2019 World Cup Qualifiers.
The big showdown between the North African giants is the top attraction in a round that has host Angola taking on Democratic Republic of Congo.
Congo is yet to record a win in the competition while Angola is yet to beaten in two games in the competition.
On the other hand, Morocco and Egypt have each won a game in two outings this weekend and face off for potentially second place in the group.
Tonight’s clash is a repeat of this year’s African Nations Championship (AfroBasket) meet where Morocco edged Egypt 66-62.
After beating DR Congo in the opening game, Egypt failed to hold on to an 11 point lead against Angola to fall 64-68.
Morocco however, lost to Angola but recovered well to beat Congo 88-81 in overtime for its first win of the competition.
The 2019 World Cup is hosted by China and a second round of qualifiers will decide which teams pick up Africa’s five slots.
