Ivory Coast vs DR Congo prediction
The Elephants of Africa, Ivory Coast, are up to speed into the Semis after stunning Mali with a late comeback that granted their ticket to meet Congolese. Ivorians have a high determination to retain the trophy on their home soil and this can never be doubted as they have shown a very high level of commitment to fight for it. So unfortunately Kossounou was booked with second yellow on their last play with Mali; which could mean he is going to miss the semis against DR Congo.
DR Congo came from behind to smash Guinea with a 3-1 win during the quarter-finals thanks to Mbemba, Wissa, and Masuaku’s goals. Similar to the Ivory Coast, DR Congo has won 2 AFCON trophies. The DR Congo squad is fired up to bring back the old time in this season as it has been a while since they made it to the finals. It should be remembered that since 1974, they have managed to enter the semis only twice. We are longing for a very serious and high-level disciplined game here and most of their key players will be keen to have an impact against the host nation.
This game is a very tight one hence we advise the Ivory Coast vs DR Congo prediction to be Under 2.5 Goals.
