That means the Tunisia vs Equatorial Guinea match has been moved from Ebebiyin to Bata, while the winners of Bafana Bafana?s Group C will face the runners-up in Group D in Malabo rather than Mongomo.CAF said in a statement: The newly-installed pitches in Ebebiyin and Mongomo have been very satisfactory, allowing free flowing play during the group stages, and this despite having been installed only about one month ago.?However, these two pitches has been adversely affected by combination of wear and tear from the six games played or to be played in each of them and the unstable weather conditions seen lately.

?Consequently, the CAF Executive Committee feels that the eight teams qualified for the quarterfinal stages onwards should be given the opportunity to play on grounds that provide the highest standards, specifically those of Bata and Malabo, to ensure the quality of play remains at the highest possible level.

?This decision has been arrived at after consultation with all parties concerned, inclusive of the Local Organizing Committees and the teams involved.?
