Senegal vs Ivory Coast Match Preview and Prediction
Senegal vs Ivory Coast: Today at Stade Charles Konan Banny de Yamoussoukro, hosts Ivory Coast will square off against reigning champion Senegal, who will bring their unbeaten record to the last 16-round matchup in Yamoussoukro. Senegal had by far the most positive impression of any team at the 2024 AFCON, among a sea of upsets and unpleasant surprises.
With a maximum record of nine points from three games, the reigning champions easily defeated teams like Guinea, Cameroon, and the Gambia to win a tough Group C. Senegal’s head coach, Aliou Cisse, is happy with every aspect of the game, but especially the attack, which scored nine goals in the three victories mentioned.
The story is entirely different, with Ivory Coast appearing hopelessly disoriented following a crushing 0–4 loss to Equatorial Guinea on the last day of the group stage. However, an odd series of other outcomes saw the hosts maintain their position as the third-placed team in the groups and fourth in the competition.
