Namibia faces Ivory Coast in a match from Group D of the African Cup of Nations
Namibia faces Ivory Coast in a match from Group D of the African Cup of Nations. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our vip football tips 1X2.
Just as everyone expected, Namibia are the underdogs in this group with 0 points from the two first rounds. The Brave Warriors achieved two 0-1 losses in their first two games, losing against Morocco and South Africa. These two results proved that Namibia were pretty tough on the pitch, but still – a loss is a loss, so now they are at the bottom of the group.
In their previous game the Brave Warriors faced South Africa in Cairo and suffered a second consecutive 0-1 loss. The only goal in the game was scored in the middle of the second half, when Bongani Zungu scored the winner for Bafana Bafana. Namibia’s head coach Ricardo Mannetti tried to change something, doing substitutions, but this didn’t help his team.
In the same time Ivory Coast are second in the group, having 3 points won so far. For the Elephants this game is a clear chance to secure a qualification for the 1/8-finals. In their first game Ivory Coast achieved a win over South Africa, but in the second one they lost against the leader in the group Morocco.
It was a pretty even game against Morocco, but the Atlas Lions secured their win with a goal in the first half of the match. The hero for the Moroccan team was the central forward Youssef En-Nesyri, who scored during the first half of the game.
Ivory Coast are always among the favourites to win the Cup of Nations, so now they have another chance to prove it, by reaching the knockout phase of the competition.
