Mali and Guinea face a long night as they await a rare drawing of lots to decide which team goes through to the African Nations Cup quarter-finals.
A 1-1 draw between the teams in Mongomo yesterday left them tied in second place in Group D behind the Ivory Coast, who finished top after beating Cameroon 1-0 in Malabo.
Max Gradel's first-half goal means the Ivorians will take on Algeria in the last eight in Malabo on Sunday. This afternoon's draw will decide who plays Group C winners Ghana.
Only twice before has the tournament needed a draw to separate teams, in 1972 and 1988.
Mali captain Seydou Keita had a penalty saved as both teams played out a third successive 1-1 draw and finished level on points, goal difference and goals scored in second place in the standings.
