Ivory Coast vs Guinea-Bissau prediction
The AFCON 2023 will be the most competitive edition and the Ivorian will open the competition by locking horns with Guinea-Bissau at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium, Abidjan. This will be the second time, Ivory Coast will be the host nation of the AFCON tournament. The elephants’ expectations are too high for they will be determined to win their third title in the history of the AFCON. Ivory Coast is one of the stronger teams in this tournament and that can be depicted during their warm-up against Sierra Leone as they smashed them with a 5-1 win.
Guinea-Bissau has appeared in every edition of AFCON since its first qualification in 2017. However, they never made it beyond the group stage in their last three AFCON appearance. Baciro Candé, their manager is longing to take this squad to the knockout stage for this season. The opening match will be their first experience against the Elephants as they never met them before in AFCON. Their recent 5 games do not look good and can not promise a win as they miserably lost to Mali in a recent friendly.
A Halftime/Full-time win for Ivory Coast could be a profitable bet when you think of Ivory Coast vs Guinea-Bissau prediction.
