Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Ivory Coast and Madagascar go head to head in the AFCON qualifiers Group K in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. The Elephants aim to bounce back from a shocking loss to Ethiopia, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field against Madagascar. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha, who has been scoring goals for fun in the Premier League this season. Goalkeepers Eliezer Ira Tape and Abdoul Cisse Karim are the only home-based players in the Ivory Coast squad.
Madagascar, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in Group K intact, but the Elephants are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Barea than their previous rivals. In their last meeting in a competitive match Ivory Coast crushed Madagascar 3-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Ivory Coast defenders should have Paris FC midfielder Lalaina Nomenjanahary at bay.
