Ivory Coast vs Nigeria Prediction Match Details

Ivory Coast will be looking to build on their opening-day victory as they battle Nigeria in the second round of the biggest cup in Africa, the AFCON, at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara in Abidjan.

Ivory Coast Preview & Form

Ivory Coast, the host country for this edition of the AFCON tournament, displayed a solid start with a 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau. Seko Fofana opened the scoring in the fourth minute of the match, while Jean-Philippe Krasso doubled the hosts’ lead in the 58th minute.

The Elephants displayed an excellent form of teamwork in front of their happy fans by keeping a clean sheet in their opening fixture. Their last clean victory saw them record clean sheet in three of their last four matches.

Ivory Coast will look to continue their recent form in this match, as they are unbeaten in their last eight matches, recording a four-match winning streak across all competitions.

Nigeria had a disappointing start at the 2023 AFCON tournament after the Super Eagles were held to a 1-1 draw by Equatorial Guinea in their opening Group A fixtures. Thanks to a goal from Victor Oshimen, who equalized within two minutes of Equatorial Guinea taking the lead.

Jose Peseiro will anticipate avoiding a loss in this match, as the Super Eagles of Nigeria currently sit in the second position with the same points as Equatorial Guinea.

The three-time AFCON winners are unbeaten in eight of their last nine matches across all competitions. They have been held to a draw four times, won four times, and lost once.

Key Player to Watch

Frank Kessie extended his goal contribution to three assists in the Ivory Coast victory over Guinea-Bissau.

Victor Osimhen, who is the reigning African Player of the Year, scored the equalizing goal against Equatorial Guinea.

Ademola Lookman continued his impressive goal contribution with his assist, leading to the equalizer against Equatorial Guinea.
