Both Niger and Morocco will be out to salvage some pride from their failed African Nations Cup campaigns on Tuesday in Libreville.
Neither country has managed to pick up a point so far from their two Group C games having each lost to Gabon and Tunisia, and they can no longer claim a quarter-final berth.
For former winners and 2004 runners-up Morocco especially the early exit is a huge disappointment, but coach Eric Gerets is hoping to end the tournament on a high tomorrow - as well as use the match to help with future planning.
"We will play for pride first. We don't want to leave without any positive results," said Gerets, who insisted following Friday's defeat to Gabon that he would not be resigning.
"It's also important for the future. A new era will begin. Everyone will be given a chance, so as to create more competition within the team.
"We will take stock of what's happened and learn from our failure to be better prepared next time."
He added at today's press conference: "I understand the Moroccan public's disappointment, because there was so much hope in this team. But everyone needs to be aware that the disappointment also affects the players, staff and the Federation."
Tournament debutants Niger will also be looking to bow out with a good performance, but midfielder William N'Gounou is confident their experiences over the last few weeks will stand them in good stead for the future.
"One year from now there's another Africa Nations Cup and I think we'll be ready for the next tournament," said N'Gounou, who scored his nation's first ever goal in the competition in Friday's 2-1 defeat to Tunisia.
N'Gounou's eighth-minute strike cancelled out Youssef Msakni's early opener for Tunisia but it was not enough to earn his side a point as they conceded an injury-time winner to Issam Jemaa.
"We were really close and we let it go," N'Gounou told BBC Sport .
"It's sad but it's a lesson to learn for the next time. We'll be aware of our mistakes and try to do better."
