We kick a new week off by swinging over to the Charles Konan Banny Stadium for a game in the Africa Cup of Nations.

This Monday, Senegal and the Ivory Coast will go toe-to-toe in Yamoussoukro. The two sides are competing in the last 16 stage of the Africa Cup of Nations. Given the odds at play, our bet of the day sides with Senegal winning this match.

To bolster our forecast of a Senegal win, we will examine the historical statistics of both teams, along with their recent performances.

🎲 Bet of the Day: Senegal vs Ivory Coast

These teams previously met in the CAF African Nations Championship in January 2023. Senegal won the match 1-0 with a goal from Moussa Ndiaye in the 77th minute. It was the third game in a row where Senegal scored one goal against the Ivory Coast.

The AFCON title holders enter this latest clash in excellent form. Last week’s 2-0 win over Guinea extended their winning streak to four games. Senegal are also unbeaten in seven matches. They won six of these outings, scored the first goal in six of them, and kept six clean sheets.

The Ivory Coast, on the other hand, are in a bad state after a 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea. The loss led to manager Jean-Louis Gasset being fired. The Elephants tried to bring Herve Renard back, but were unsuccessful. Instead, Emerse Fae will be in charge of a team that has lost its last two games without scoring.
