Senegal vs Ivory Coast – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Senegal to Win (11/8)

  • Senegal have a 100% winning record at AFCON so far with three straight victories.
  • Ivory Coast lost each of their last two group games and they were hammed 4-0 by Equatorial Guinea in their last test.

Hosts Ivory Coast sneaked into the Last 16, though they scarcely deserved their place after their humiliating 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea on matchday three. In contrast, Senegal have looked classy in all departments and they will back themselves to make it four wins from four games at AFCON on Monday. Our top Senegal vs Ivory Coast prediction recommends siding with the form team here.

Senegal vs Ivory Coast prediction

Senegal vs Ivory Coast Team News

Senegal

Senegal have looked like one of the slickest operators at AFCON so far and their tactically robust 4-1-4-1 formation seems to be getting the best out of their considerable individual talent. Senegal's pace in attack should trouble an unreliable Ivory Coast defence.

Predicted Lineup for Senegal: Mendy – Diatta, Seck, Koulibaly, Jakobs – Gueye, I. Sarr, P. Sarr, Mendy, Mane – Diallo

Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast flopped badly in their harrowing defeat to Equatorial Guinea last time out and head coach Jean-Louis Gasset must be contemplating changes to his XI ahead of Monday's game. Karim Konata, Simon Adringra and Jeremie Boga will be among those hoping to start.

Predicted Lineup for Ivory Coast: Y. Fofana – Singo, Boly, Ndicka, Konan – Sangare, Kessie, S. Fofana – Adringra, Konate, Pepe

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Evan Ndicka

Evan Ndicka holds a reputation as one of the better up-and-coming central defenders in world football, however, the Roma star hasn’t lived up to his billing at AFCON so far. The 23-year-old has looked far from assured at the heart of the Ivory Coast backline and he will need to step his game up to stem the flow of Senegal attacks on Monday.
