Both of these pre-tournament favourites were unimpressive and unconvincing on matchday 1, and we're expecting a tight clash here between two sides with contrasting styles.

Match preview 📰

Morocco and Ivory Coast laboured to 1-0 wins in their opening games and both know they'll need to improve to go far in this tournament. Morocco saw off Namibia thanks to a late own goal while Ivory Coast needed a second-half strike from Jonathan Kodjia to clinch victory by the same scoreline against South Africa. Morocco might find themselves to be too reliant on the individual quality of Hakim Ziyech, while Ivory Coast's over-supply of individually gifted players makes it a case of too many cooks spoiling the broth.

It's almost impossible to call this one, meaning that we are inclined to back a low-scoring, tense affair.

Players to watch 💫 

Jean-Michael Seri is one of the top playmakers in the competition while Nicolas Pepe is a potential Player of the Tournament based on the sparkling performances for Lille in Ligue 1 that have turned him into an £80 million-rated winger. Hakim Ziyech's stellar season for Ajax is well-documented, and he holds the key to unlock Ivory Coast's defence.
