Ivory Coast – Algeria, African Cup of Nations Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR IVORY COAST - ALGERIA
Côte d’Ivoire once again proved to be a big team after dealing with the class Malian pressure, which came in the first part of one of the more interesting games of the round of 16. Actually Ivory Coast has given dozens of chances to Mali, which they did not take advantage of and until the end of the game, the elephants started to play better and eventually there was a mistake in Mali’s defense from which Zaha took advantage.
On the other hand, Algeria does not allow any surprises against itself and easily broke Guinea by 3-0 as the rise continues. They still have no goal conceded in the tournament, but they are winning without difficulties as they even defeated Senegal, as the lions are one of the main favorites. Overall Algeria play brilliantly in defense and their shape is great.
We now expect Côte d’Ivoire’s weaknesses to be seen much better and Algeria to punish them. We think the Algerians are the team that deserves much to go to the semifinals and at the moment looks the better of both teams. Desert foxes are just a team that plays almost perfect and so we give Algeria to win either half at 1.66, and you can also try direct 2 at 2.10.
- Algeria has 8 wins and 2 draws in the last 10 games
