Now Congo have a corner. Mbemba gets there again, but Melvin makes the save!
CHANCE! Metanire shoots but hus effort is saved by Matampi. Corner is then cleared.
As you can expect, the pace of this game has slowed a lot in extra time. Congo having most of the ball but there aren't many chances.

- Yellow cardYoussouf MulumbuDR Congo
Just one minute added on as Mulumbu is booked for persistent fouling.
Akolo breaks forward for Congo, but there is no one up with him. As he slows down, Madagascar sort themselves out at the break and deal with the situation.
Mulimbu fouls Lalaina, allowing Madagascar to break out.
Five minutes until the break and Madagascar have dropped off a little, perhaps understandably. Congo haven't impressed in midfield though. Mulumbu has been poor so far.
Tisserand plays a lovely ball out wide for Akolo who wins a corner for Congo. But it is too low and wasted.
CHANCE! How did Mbemba not finish that?! He was free in the box but skied over on the volley. Congo should lead.
Catch Amada's opener here. Great strike!
Madagascar dominating the ball so far, with 60% of the ball. But you sense Congo will grow into it more after their equaliser.
Amada can't find the target as he did earlier in the game. His kick goes harmlessly over.
Lifeline for Congo, who haven't been at it so far. But Madagascar have a freekick here.
- GoalCedric BakambuDR Congo
GOOOOOOOAAAAALLL!!! Bakambu gets his third of the tournament to equalise with a superb header. 1-1. Great cross.
First run in behind for Assombalonga, who kept it in before being flagged offside. They need some more of that.
Mbemba commits a foul in midfield after coming out of position. Congo can't get a hold of this one yet.
Madagascar have really impressed so far, Bakambu and Assombalonga haven't had a kick yet.
- GoalIbrahim AmadaMadagascar
GOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! Madagascar lead! Amada with an absolutely superb strike! You can't say they don't deserve it.
Foul given agaimst Andriatsima after the free kick went through to Matampi.
Now there is a free kick in a good position for Madagascar after Lalaina is fouled. He is over it.
Free kick taken by Congo but they commit a foul so nothing comes of it. Both sides feeling their way in here.
Early corner to Madagascae, taken by Lalaina but cleared. They're on the front foot early on.
Kick off! Congo get us underway.
Anthems are in progress. Everything is set.
Nine minutes until kick off. Who is excited?
With Cameroon and Egypt both out of the tournament, the AFCON is wide open. On paper, Congo, who have won it twice, are stronger, but Madagascar have form on their side. This should be interesting,
Everything is ready!
There are two players, one on each side, look for the Golden Boot tonight. Andriamahitsinoro and Bakambu are both on two goals each, just one off the leader. They'll be crucial to both sides' chances.
Coach Javier Aguirre has since been sacked. Harsh but fair?
Last night showed why we can't assume anything at the AFCON, as favourites and hosts Egypt were beaten by South Africa. Read our match report here.
With a draw and two wins, Madagascar have been one of the surprise packages of the tournament. They cannot be ruled out. Congo have just one win to their name so far, but it was an emphatic 4-0 win over Zimbabwe.
Plenty of English interest in this one for Congo, with former Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba starting at the back and Middlesbrough's Britt Assombalonga up front. Cedric Bakambu of Beijing Guoan, partners him, and you would think that strikeforce would give them the edge.
