Ivory Coast Prediction- Can Ivory Coast get off to a good start?

Ivory Coast will be confident that they can get their Africa Cup of Nations campaign off to a winning start against South Africa in Cairo.

The Elephants have won 4 of their last 5 matches overall in all competitions which they’ll be hoping will give them a decent platform from which to build from on Monday afternoon.

Recent wins against Rwanda, Liberia, Comoros and Zambia should hold the Ivorians in good stead for this group opener against South Africa.

Indeed, Ivory Coast have lost just 1 out of their last 12 matches in all competitions which was a 1-0 loss to Uganda at the Sheikh Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi just 10 days ago.

This tournament is essentially all away from home but Ivory Coast have put together a solid looking 7-match unbeaten record on their travels in recent times.

Within this sequence are 2 wins and 5 draws; the victories being gained over Gabon and Rwanda, while drawing with Mali, Uganda, Togo, Central African Republic and Guinea.

South Africa Prediction – Can South Africa get off the mark?

South Africa bring a 3-match unbeaten run into this Monday afternoon clash with Ivory Coast so they too will be fairly confident of getting a result in this opening fixture.

Recent wins against Uganda and Malawi (both on penalties) in the COSAFA Cup along with a 0-0 draw with Ghana just before the Africa Cup of Nations tournament started.

Overall results have seen the South Africans lose just 2 out of their last 15 matches in all competitions, which were defeats to Madagascar and Botswana.

5 draws within this 15-match sequence suggest that they could grab at least a point in their opening match in Group D against Ivory Coast.

South Africa have also put together a 5-match unbeaten run together on their travels too which includes wins at Namibia, Libya and Uganda.

Prior to this recent unbeaten streak though, South Africa had suffered 3 defeats on the trot to Zambia, Cape Verde Islands and Senegal.

Although they’ve drawn twice and beaten Ivory Coast in previous meetings, these results were all achieved on home turf.

  • Ivory Coast are unbeaten in their last 7 matches in all competitions
  • South Africa have lost just 2 out of their last 15 matches in all competitions
  • There have been 3 previous meetings; 1 win for South Africa and 2 draws
