Ivory Coast: Still looking for the right form ( Recent Form: W W L W W )
After the elimination of Egypt, Cameroon, Morocco and Ghana, among others, the odds for tournament wins for Ivory Coast have dropped considerably, although the two-time African champion has not yet got the right shape. In the eighth finals against young Mali, the country was put with its back to the wall, and in the first half it didn't even hit a single shot between the posts. However, due to various incomprehensible failures by the Mali attackers, De Olifanten remained on their feet. Fifteen minutes before time, striker Wilfried Zaha even shot his country completely against the ratio to the next round. Ivory Coast is in the quarterfinals thanks to the necessary luck, but the game will definitely have to be better if it wants to make a serious throw at tournament win. The players themselves also realize that. Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier, who himself was sidelined due to an ankle injury, slammed his fist so hard on the table during the break in the match against Mali that he injured his wrist. Aurier is therefore also a doubtful event on Thursday evening, although he does not seem to regret his action: 'We played badly, and the mood became heated. Sometimes you have to send a signal. "
Algeria: Does excellent ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
Algeria is working on an excellent tournament and, together with Senegal, is one of the top favorites for winning the Africa Cup. The Desert Foxes all won their group matches, and had no trouble with Guinea in the eighth finals with a convincing 3-0 victory. Both in terms of form and play, Algeria is by far the best country in this Africa Cup. Under the leadership of Riyad Mahrez, the Algerian attack is life-threatening, while the country has not yet had to take a single hit. In addition, the North Africans can count on their fanatical supporters, so that every match feels like a home match. National coach Djamel Belmadi can therefore be satisfied, although he realizes that he cannot afford a single misstep. Many local superpowers have already been killed in this Africa Cup, and of course Algeria does not want to be the next victim. "I don't watch the other participants that much," said Belmadi. 'I prefer to put my energy into my own selection. We want to improve ourselves continuously. "
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, both sides' defenses are very solid. Except for the possibility, Ivory Coast will take the initiative in lowering the formation and not be afraid to collide. Algeria will face a lot of difficulties to break through the opponent's net. In addition, the enemy is also hard to make difficult for their defenders.
