Form of the teams
Cote d’Ivoire have performed very confidently in the group stage of the African Nations Cup. In their quartet, the national team picked up seven points with victories over Equatorial Guinea (1-0) and Algeria (3-1), and in their encounter against Sierra Leone, a draw was recorded.
Egypt were less successful in their quartet. They got off to a poor start in the group stage with a 0-1 defeat to Nigeria. To qualify for the play-off round, the Egyptians had to work hard in games against Guinea-Bissau and Sudan, which were beaten 1-0.
It should be noted that the last meeting between the opponents took place back in 2013. Then Côte d’Ivoire beat Egypt 4-2 in a friendly game.

Côte d’Ivoire have exchanged goals in the past two matches at the tournament
Egypt are unbeaten in 8 of their last 10 matches in all competitions
Egypt’s attack looked passive in the group stage, but in the play-offs, the team should improve noticeably. Cote d’Ivoire, meanwhile, have been productive at the tournament, scoring six goals in three matches. That being said, we’d recommend a two-goal, two-goal affair at odds of 2.10 at BC 1xbet.
