Looking at the pairings of the Africa Cup in 2019, a game of quality clearly stands out in the quarter-finals. With Ivory Coast and Algeria, only two teams meet in a single match, which would have been credited with triumphing in Egypt in the run-up to the match. The favorites will continue to die, but at least in the quarter-finals, this is not unusual, as the heavyweights meet in the direct duels. At first glance everything seems to be possible in this game, although there were already noticeable differences in form.
Football Betting Tips Ivory Coast vs Algeria
The Ivorians have played with a little luck in this quarterfinals. As second in the group behind Morocco it was enough for the first knockout round, where the elephants had a lot of trouble with the team from Mali. The Algerians are perhaps the most sovereign team in this tournament so far. The desert foxes had no major problems so far and may be regarded as a top favorite, perhaps alongside the Senegalese, who could be defeated in the group stage. That is why in the duel between Ivory Coast and Algeria a prediction on the North Africans seems more in line with the general trend.
But the Ivorians have a top team, which can make the desert fox very difficult. We therefore do not necessarily expect a clear case. It would surprise us a bit if Algeria does not prevail in this encounter. This is also the prevailing opinion among the bookmakers, although the odds are not so different as to speak of a mandatory victory for the Elf of Djamel Belmadi. Nevertheless, we would prefer a tip for a victory of the desert fox before the quarter-finals between Ivory Coast and Algeria. We will see if the North Africans do justice to this role.
Ivory Coast – Statistics & current form
When looking at the naked numbers it looks very neat for the elephants at the Africa Cup in Egypt. Three wins in four games at this tournament are a very good win, so the Ivorians are justified in the quarter-finals. Playfully, the kickers from the Ivory Coast but have not covered with fame. It lacks the crew of Ibrahima Kamara at penetration in attack. Maybe that’s because the coach keeps spinning on the offensive positions. Wilfried Bony, Wilfried Zaha, Max Gradel, Nicholas Pepe and Jonathan Kodjia can not be sure of their place in the team, which certainly unsettles the players. It would be so important to take the lead against Algeria, because the Ivory Coast has lost in this century at the African Cup still no game in which they went 1-0 in the lead. This means that in the case of Ivorer’s early goal in the duel between Ivory Coast and Algeria, we should not pay much attention to the odds of winning an Algerian victory.
Ivory Coast took a 1-0 lead against Mali in the round of 16, but only in the 75th minute, when the time for the Malians was too short to fight back. Wilfried Zaha was the scorer of the golden goal. But this victory must not hide the fact that Mali was in principle the much better team. Only with good luck did the elephants manage to win this match.
“Algeria have a great team. There are many players we need to keep an eye on. We will face a very strong team. ” – Ibrahima Kamara
It will become apparent if Fortuna will hold the elephant in the quarter-finals again. In any case, Coach Ibrahima Kamara has the utmost respect for the desert foxes and makes it clear that one must not only focus on Riyad Mahrez, but the entire team is very strong. Ibrahima Kamara hopes his captain will be back on board. Serge Aurier suffered a knee injury in the group match against Morocco and had to pass the last two games. According to reports, he should be in the quarter-finals again operational.
Expected lineup of Ivory Coast:
↪ Gbohouo – Coulibaly, Canon, Traore, Bagayoko – Serey Die, Gbamin – Zaha, Kessie, Pepe – Kodjia
↪ Coach: Kamara

Algeria – Statistics & Current Form
Algeria are so far the best team in the Africa Cup 2019. This fact is especially clear in the results, because the desert fox have been the only remaining in the tournament team all the games for themselves and also conceded also no goal. Overall, Algeria has not lost for ten games. Coach Djamel Belmadi has renounced some big names in his squad. Sapphire Taider, Nabil Bentaleb or Ishak Belfodil have not even been nominated for the African Cup of Nations. So far, there were no major problems in this tournament, although in the group match against Senegal, in principle, only a really serious task had to be mastered. Overall, it looks very confident, what the desert fox so far in Egypt deliver. Therefore, we maintain that in the duel between Ivory Coast and Algeria a prediction for a success of desert foxes should be the first choice.
After three wins in the preliminary round, the self-confidence of the desert fox before the duel against Guinea was of course already very large. Coach Djamel Belmadi has been able to delight some players, including Islam Slimani and Yacine Brahimi. In the end, it was enough to a sovereign 3-0 victory. Youcef Belaili scored for his 1-0 break. Riyad Mahrez and Adam Ounas increased to 3-0 in the second leg. The task in the quarterfinals should be a bit harder now.
“The game against the elephants will definitely not be fun. We expect a very, very difficult game. ” – Djamel Belmadi
The coach also sees that, who definitely does not enjoy the Ivorians and assumes a very difficult game.
What is certain is that all actors should be operational. We think that Yacine Brahimi is back in the team, otherwise we are surprised how the plan of Djamel Belmadi looks like.
Expected formation of Algeria:
↪ M’Bolhi – Bensebaini, Benlamri, Mandi, Atal – Guedioura, Feghouli, Bennacer – Brahimi, Mahrez, Bounedjah
↪ Coach: Belmadi
