Lesotho will host Ivory Coast in another match from the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday.

Lesotho vs Ivory Coast: Top Free Betting Tips

There were no surprises at the start of this group and Ivory Coast showed that they are the main contenders to win the group. Here are our tips for this fixture.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

Ivory Coast are one of the highest-scoring national teams in Africa and we expect a new fiesta of goals against one of the weakest national teams on the continent. Lesotho failed to score in the opening match and did not really have many chances so we generally expect at least three goals from the visiting side. Ivory Coast managed to score three goals against Zambia in their opening match and also conceded one in return.

Half-Time Result – Ivory Coast

The odds for Ivory Coast to win this match will be too low to bet on, so we would rather go for the half time win instead. While the odds are not yet available, we expect to see lines of around 1/1 (2.00) when they show up. Ivory Coast are one of the highest-ranked teams in Africa while Lesotho are all the way down at 44th palce out of 54 African national teams. We think that there is no doubt that Ivory Coast will look for the goals from the start of the match and we expect to see them win at half time.

Both Teams To Score – No

While Lesotho showed some spirit in their preliminary qualifications, this is one of the weakest teams on the continent and generally in the world. We have no expectations from them for either of the two games against Ivory Coast. We do not expect the visitors to concede a goal in this match, just like Lesotho failed to score in their opening match against Comoros – a significantly weaker team than Ivory Coast.

Lesotho vs Ivory Coast: Form, Recent Games, and News

Lesotho Preview

Lesotho have one of the weakest squads in the entire Africa Cup of Nations and it is obvious that nobody expects huge achievements. As the 44th weakest team out of 54, they cannot compare to Ivory Coast. None of their players perform at the highest level in the football world and there is actually very little information about the individual players.

Ivory Coast Preview

Ivory Coast have another great generation of players and future stars of the highest tier. We can expect some great achievements from this squad in the upcoming decade. Several names should be mentioned – Sebastien Haller from Ajax, Wilfried Zaha from Csytal Palace, Nicolas Pepe from Arsenal, Serge Aurier from Villareal, and more. Overall, this is one of the strongest squads on the continent.
