Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have found the back of the net in five of the previous six meetings.
  • Algeria need to win and need to score their first goal of the tournament, they have to go for it.
  • Ivory Coast have scored in six of their previous seven matches.

All to play for

Everything is on the line in Group E of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) as all four nations are still able to progress into the knockout stages of the competition. Now two of the tournament favourites will go head-to-head in a monumental encounter.

Ivory Coast possesses an excellent record against Algeria and are unbeaten against them since 1992. A draw would be enough to see the ‘Elephants’ through but they will be hoping for a better outcome here than that given they’ve suffered defeat just once across their last 12 international matches.

Algeria are running the risk of having to deal with an embarrassing group-stage exit of the AFCON and nothing but a win will do here as they’ve struggled in their opening two tournament matches. They lost 1-0 to Equatorial Guinea last time out and are yet to score a single goal so far.

Goals at both ends likely

These games are always interestingly poised given the circumstances. However, we think that as both teams go for it, there will be gaps left at the back for both sides and as such, we think both teams will find the back of the net here – there’s only so long Algeria can go without scoring!
