African Cup of Nations / Morocco – Ivory Coast – Derby of this group of African Cup of Nations and a duo of two selections hoping to eventually win the trophy. In the first round, they justified the roles of the favorites and made victories with identical results. Morocco defeated Namibia with 1: 0, and the Ivory Coast did so against the South African Republic. In the last match, Morocco beat the Ivory Coast with 2: 0 as a guest.


They lost the Moroccans in a friendly match before coming to the African Cup of Nations, and it was not encouraging for the ambitions of this selection that are surely great. Defeat from Argentina by 1: 0 was still acceptable, but lost the same result from Gambia, while in the general Zambia test lost 3: 2. The biggest star of this selection, the midfielder Ziyech scored two goals, which were not enough to avoid defeat. At the beginning of this competition, they played against Namibia and were struggling to get to the finish line at 1: 0. They are very strong in composition and only left side Mendyl is missing.

The probable initial composition of Morocco: Bono – Mazraoui, Saiss, Benatia, Hakimi – El Ahmadi, Boussoufa, Bourabia – Ziyech, N.Amrabat – En-Nesyri

Ivory Coast

The results of the Ivory Coast were variable in friendly matches and, for example, lost the match from Uganda to 1: 0, but they beat Liberia with the same result and then Zambia before coming to Egypt to the African Cup of Nations. In that match they were captained first and then they turned everything back from four goals, with four different shooters. The first goal was scored by Kodjia, and this attacker was the decision-maker in the first round when Côte d’Ivoire 1: 0 defeated the JAR. In the middle of the second half he scored the only goal worth three points. They miss some important players like Bailly, but they are still very good.

The probable initial composition of Ivory Coast: Gbohouo – Aurier, Traore, Kanon, Doumbia – Gbamin, Kessie – Pepe, Seri, Gradel – Kodjia

Football Prediction of the Day Morocco vs Ivory Coast

Another duel in which it is difficult to determine the favorites, because the rivals are really of equal quality. They are similar in shape and somehow it seems that the remedy is the most realistic outcome. We will give a slight advantage to Morocco, as they are geographically closer to Egypt and will probably have more support from the fans.
