Namibia vs Ivory Coast Match Preview
Ivory Coast have kicked off the campaign with a solid 1-0 win over South Africa and largely boosted their chances at a top 2 spot and a ticket to the knockout stages but they’ve struggled to cope with Morocco’s early lead, suffering a 1-0 loss on Matchday 2 and now having their spot in danger as they meet Namibia on Monday.
Elephants struggled to create and convert chances, with Ismael Traore’s overhead attempt only worthy of highlight reels but still unfruitful. Morocco felt closer to a second goal late in the match and Ibrahim Kamara will have to look for more confidence when moving the ball forward despite less of a challenge now looming.
Namibia have, on the other hand, a lifeline if they can bag a comfortable win here and Morocco beat South Africa, which will surely have them motivated at 30 June Air Defence Stadium. They come with two narrow yet consecutive losses behind them, though, and can’t boast great team spirits.
Indeed, it only took late goals in games against Morocco (1-0) and South Africa (1-0) to untangle the clashes and Brave Warriors will want to prove their worth now as well. They’ve struggled to turn clashes their way but conceded a low total of five goals in five games for such a spell, which does imply a narrow occasion in the making once again.
We will still back Ivory Coast to justify their role and turn a tough clash their way, as we go for them to win to Nil at 4/5 with Netbet – which seems like great value seeing Namibia’s tough defensive approach and struggles to score goals in Egypt.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for another low-scoring clash here and this has us going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/15 with 22Bet as more of a banker bet catching the eye of many big hitters already.
