These two teams have won the title on multiple occasions and they both know what it means to lift the title again.

Ivory Coast have the much needed impetus because they will be playing in front of their fans who will go to great lengths to supports their darling Elephants. Besides the supports of their teeming fans fans, they have some of the brightest prospects on the continents as well as experienced heads within their squad.

Main tip: Under 2.5 Goals

Our Ivory Coast vs Nigeria predictions

According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:

Prediction 1: Under 2.5 Goals

Historically, the matches between these two produces goals but not as much as an average of four per game. While Juventus have been on a good run winning their games, only one of the last five matches involving Max Allegri’s team has produced more than three goals. In fact none of their last five head-to-head meetings returned more than three goals. Also, this is a knock out competition chances will be at a premium. With this, we expect the match to produce less than four total goals.
