Morocco vs Ivory Coast Match Preview
Ivory Coast beat South Africa (1-0) as Jonathan Kodjia’s second-half goal made all the difference in another rock-solid setup from Ibrahim Kamara’s men, where they bagged their fifth win in six outings and now meet Morocco looking for more of the same despite another tough challenge looming.
Elephants still have a lot to prove and they’ll surely want to make a statement here, looking to set themselves up among the favourites to lift the Trophy despite coming into the competition as 2nd in Qualifying Group H behind Guinea.
Morocco will obviously have plans of their own after bagging a similarly narrow 1-0 win over Namibia on the opening day, where they ended a streak of three consecutive losses – struggling to pick it up through March and June friendlies as they fell victims to Argentina (0-1), Gambia (0-1), Zambia (2-3).
Atlas Lions have proven themselves a tough nut to crack on many occasions along the way, though, and we’ll surely see stable at the back. We thus expect a narrow occasion in the making at Al Salam Stadium but it’s still hard to see them shut down in-form Ivory Coast at this point.
We’ll thus stick our necks out for Ivory Coast to keep building on fine performances at the back and turn another narrow occasion their way, backed at 13/10 with MyBet which seems great value despite such a contest in the making.
Still, going for few goals still seems like the safe approach to the fixture and we’ll now also back Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 1/2 with Hamabet and has seen many big hitters lumping with both sides enjoying such clashes lately.
