Ivory Coast vs South Africa: top free betting tips
Ivory Coast and South Africa go up against each other at Stade Felix Houphouet Boigny in Friendlies on Tuesday, 17 October. The Elephants enter this game featuring an equal score against Morocco and South Africa featured a draw against Eswatini.
Match result prediction: Draw
Ivory Coast have found two victories in the last five home and away fixtures while losing only once. The Elephants have featured in the previous two matches at Stade Felix Houphouet Boigny withdraws. On the other hand, South Africa has also gone undefeated in their last four matches, concluding two with equal scores. Adding more to this, two of the four H2Hs of these two clubs have ended without a winner. Therefore, we predict the teams to share another scoresheet with equal scores on coming Tuesday.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
All of the four H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with Under 2.5 Goals. Ivory Coast have found the back of the net four times in their last five fixtures. Meanwhile, South Africa has rattled the net just twice in the same duration. On the defensive end, both teams have claimed at least three clean sheets in the aforestated period. Considering these facts, we predict this game to feature a total of Under 2.5 Goals.
Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw
South Africa have been unable to find the back of the net more than once in any of their last five fixtures. On the other hand, Ivory Coast have notched just one goal in two of their previous three matches. The Elephants will also encounter a strong defence ahead as South Africa has allowed just four goals at their back in their previous five road fixtures. Moreover, two of the four H2Hs of these two teams have concluded with a 1-1 scoreline. Given the current statistics, we expect the same score of 1-1 to be witnessed in this encounter.
