Ghana vs Ivory Coast Predictions

Ghana have had some difficult recent results but will want to avoid defeat at home in this West African derby. Ivory Coast are missing some of their most dangerous front players in Zaha and Pepe so will carry less threat. I am tipping a draw.

  • Ghana have won 1 of their last 4 matches (1 draw) (all competitions).
  • Ghana have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Ivory Coast have drawn 2 of their last 4 away matches (all competitions).
  • Ivory Coast have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 away matches (all competitions).
