Ok- so Ivory Coast's form hasn't been great these past few years, but who has done well in African Football? They have a quality team and I think that's enough for them to get the win, as well as many a bonus goal or two on the counter when South Africa look to surge forward to peg one back. I can see Bony playing a big part here and grabbing a goal or two off his head. Ivory Coast I think are an evolved side, they've had some work to do post Drogba, and I think they've finally got to a stage where they're a real footballing power.
The first round matches in the group stages of the African Cup of Nations is still on the go and the match in focus here is between Ivory Coast and South Africa from Group D , after looking at the overall picture of both sides it has to be said that it looks extremely close and a result can go either way inclusive of a draw , as for the Ivory Coast their last 7 away matches in all competitions has seen them win just twice with 5 draws which is a concern as South Africa have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 , furthermore as from March 2018 South Africa are unbeaten in 15 with their two losses both being via penalties whilst Ivory Coast have lost 3 of 14 since the same time plus 4 draws thus having 7 wins compared to South Africa`s 8 , in hindsight South Africa definitely have an edge albeit rather slight thus the double chance on them to win or draw is selected based on all aspects
South Africa have not lost in 10 consecutive matches in this tournament
in the African Cup of Nations, we are going to be having this game between South Africa and Ivory Coast. and if I will be betting on the game, I will be counting on South Africa to win the game. for this tip I will be going with Asian handicap South Africa to win by two goals or more, which is an Asian handicap of -1.5 goals in the full time of the game. both teams will meet officially in the second official game in group d. everyone should expect a very steamy encounter here, because both teams are attacking teams. but in terms of footballing format moment, I will give it to the South Africans
South Africa have not lost in 5 consecutive matches away in this tournament
Ivory Cost are one of the favorites in Cup of Nations. They have very good squad. I think they can win their first match in this competition. South Africa are strong team too. But I think they are not good as Ivory Coast. South Coast have won just 2 of their last matches in all competitions. Ivory Cost are in good from. They have won 4 of their last 5 matches. Ivory Cost have won Zambia 4-1, Komoros 3-1, Liberia 1-0, Rwanda 3-1. There are many Ivory Cost players play in strong European clubs. My call: 2-0 or 1-0 for Ivory Cost.
Here we have a match between Ivory Coast and South Africa which is a match in the 1st round of matches of Group D in the African Cup of Nations.
Ivory Coast with the caliber of players within their squad are no doubt one of the favorites to win the competition, South Africa are a decent side also but with the form of both teams and comparing the players of both teams it is quite obvious that Ivory Coast are the better side here and do have the advantage of getting all three points.
Verdict : Ivory Coast to win would be my pick for the match.
Ivory Coast will face off with South Africa at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo, Egypt, for a group stage match in the African cup of nations. This is the 1st round of games for both of them at this tournament. The former is currently ranked 62nd in the world while the latter is 10 places behind in 72nd. With not much to choose between the 2 teams on paper, we can expect a close affair on the field today.
South Africa come into this fixture unbeaten in its last 3 matches, winning 2 of them. Meanwhile, Ivory Coast has lost half of its last 2 matches.
Another match from the African tournament Cup of Nations round 1, now we are at the group D the match between Ivory Coast and South Africa.
Ivory Coast in the last five matches played good wining four times and they are a team who know to score on the last friendly match they done to score four times finishing the match with a win of 1:4.
South Africa in the last five matches played a mixed football of results, they are not a team who know to attack very well but for sure they will go on a defend in this match.
