Ivory Coast – South Africa : Preview & Prediction
Ivory Coast, with only one defeat on the clock for a year and a half soon, is a scarecrow. The Elephants only gave up against Uganda (0-1) on June 15 in their last 12 outings. The Ivorians ended their warm-up matches with a victory over Zambia (4-1) last Wednesday and are confident ahead of this big first day of the African Cup of Nations. South Africa, meanwhile, tied Ghana (0-0) for their last friendly match a few days after two shootout wins at the COSAFA Cup against Uganda (1-1, 4 tab 2) and against Malawi (0-0, 5 tab 4). It’s been four games since South Africans can not win in regulation time, which shows some difficulty in taking the best of their opponent.
2 draws in the 3 direct confrontations between these two nations.
Ivory Coast have suffered just 1 loss in their last 12 games.

Côte d’Ivoire just crushed Zambia (4-1) last Wednesday.
