Ivory Coast vs Algeria Predictions


Algeria must take all three points against a strong Ivory Coast side if they hope to advance. The Elephants should prove a tough opponent with a draw predicted.

  • Ivory Coast have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Ivory Coast drew their last match 2-2 against Sierra Leone (Africa Cup of Nations).
  • Algeria have drawn 4 of their last 7 matches in 90 minutes (all competitions).
  • Algeria are unbeaten in 23 of their last 24 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Algeria lead 2-1 in four matches against the Ivory Coast. There has been one draw.

They last played in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, a match Algeria won on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

Ivory Coast Form


Ivory Coast are desperate to make an impression at AFCON after failing to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. 

The Elephants began their bid to win Africa’s showpiece event with a 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea. A fifth minute strike by Mark Gradel was enough to secure the points.

It was backed up with a disappointing 2-2 draw against Sierra Leone but that point ensures that Ivory Coast are guaranteed a place in the knockouts. Sebastien Haller and Nicolas Pepe both hit the back of the net in the last match.

Ivory Coast Injuries & Team News


Eric Bailly and Badra Sangare have both been ruled out for Ivory Coast through injury. It is widely expected that the side will remain the same otherwise with Wilfred Zaha retaining his place.

Goalkeepers: Sylvain Gbohouo, Badra Ali Sangare, Abdoul Karim Cisse, Ira Eliezer Tape
Defenders: Serge Aurier, Eric Bailly, Willy Boly, Wilfried Kanon, Odilon Kossounou, Simon Deli, Ghislain Konan
Midfielders: Habib Maiga, Maxwel Cornet, Serey Die, Ibrahim Sangare, Jean-Daniel Akpa Akpro, Franck Kessie, Hamed Traore, Jeremie Boga, Max Gradel, Jean Michael Seri
Forwards: Wilfried Zaha, Jean Evrard Kouassi, Nicolas Pepe, Sebastien Haller, Christian Kouame, Yohan Boli, Karim Konate

Algeria Form


Algeria came into the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in superb form having not lost in 22 matches. 

That 22-match unbeaten run was extended, disappointingly so as the defending champions were held to a 0-0 draw in their AFCON opener against Sierra Leone. 

As the defending champions, Algeria arrived in Cameroon with plenty of pedigree. But their shock 1-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea last time out puts them in grave danger of not making it through the group stage.

Algeria Squad & Team News


Algeria have not performed well in their opening two matches which could force manager Djamel Belmadi into some changes.

Up front Islam Slimani and Yacine Brahimi are expected to get a run. Djamel Benlamri went off injured in the last match and may not be fit for this match.

Goalkeepers: Rais M'Bolhi, Alexandre Oukidja, Moustapha Zeghba.
Defenders: Djameleddine Benlamri, Aissa Mandi, Mohamed Amine Tougai, Ilyes Chetti, Abdelkader Bedrane, Ramy Bensebaini, Youcef Atal, Houcine Benayada, Mohamed Reda Halaimia, Mehdi Tahrat.
Midfielders: Ismael Bennacer, Ramiz Zerrouki, Adem Zorgane, Haris Belkebla, Sofiane Feghouli , Sofiane Bendebka.
Forwards: Riyad Mahrez, Adam Ounas, Youcef Belaïli, Said Benrahma, Yacine Brahimi, Farid Boulaya, Islam Slimani, Baghdad Bounedjah, Mohamed Amine Amoura.

Verdict

Algeria must win to progress but face their toughest opponents yet in Ivory Coast. There should be goals in this match which I'm tipping to end 2-2.
