Namibia Prediction- Can Namibia finally get off the mark?

Namibia’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign couldn’t have got off to a worse start as they’ve been handed back-to-back defeats in Group D.

An opening 1-0 defeat to Morocco was followed by another 1-0 score line in a loss to South Africa, leaving Namibia bottom of the group.

With zero points to their name and the prospect of an encounter with 2nd placed Ivory Coast, this Sunday’s tussle doesn’t look like it’ll end well for Namibia.

Overall results in recent times have also eluded them for the main part as they’ve captured just 2 wins from their last 7 matches overall.

Apart from Egypt, every other nation is effectively playing away from home, and Namibia’s results on the road have also been ordinary.

Just 4 wins out of their last 10 matches on the road in all competitions suggest that Namibia could struggle again on Monday when they face Ivory Coast.

That said, Namibia did manage to record a narrow 1-0 win away at Ivory Coast in their last encounter back in January 2018.

Ivory Coast Prediction – Can Ivory Coast secure a top two finish?

Ivory Coast have made a mixed start to their Africa Cup of Nations campaign as they started off with a 1-0 win over South Africa, but then lost in their following match.

The defeat came in the shape of a 1-0 loss to Morocco who have a 100% winning record, but Ivory Coast have a good chance of rectifying things here.

South Africa, who are level on points with Ivory Coast, have to play Group D leaders, Morocco in their final group match so this may open the door for the Ivorians.

But first, Ivory Coast must take care of business in their own match, and having won 5 of their last 7 matches overall, they’ll be confident they can get a result on Monday.

Wins over Rwanda, Liberia, Comoros, Zambia and South Africa should give Ivory Coast the necessary momentum to get over the line against Namibia.

Ivory Coast boast a number of current or former Premier League forwards in the shape of Bony, Kodjia, Zaha and Gradel, and they should ensure a win here.


Key-Facts – Namibia v Ivory Coast

  • Namibia have won just 2 of their last 7 matches in all competitions
  • Ivory Coast have won 5 of their last 7 matches in all competitions
  • Namibia did manage to record a narrow 1-0 win away at Ivory Coast in their last encounter


Betting Tips Verdict

Namibia’s confidence will be fragile so Ivory Coast have the perfect opportunity to nail down a top two finish in this clash.
