Match Preview

Namibia have suffered defeats in both of their Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) matches so far, and have now lost four of their previous seven matches (W3, L4). Nonetheless, three of those four defeats have been by a slender one-goal margin and each of the previous two finished by the same tight 1-0 scoreline.
Ricardo Mannetti’s Namibia have struggled defensively in recent matches, having kept just two clean sheets across their previous seven games. They look to be most vulnerable after the half-time break where they have conceded seven of their previous nine goals.
Defeat in matchday two put a dent into the Ivory Coast’s AFCON chances – but they can still boast a record of five wins across their previous seven matches (W5, L2). Often tight affairs settled by small margins, Ibrahim Kamara’s men saw just two of their previous six games exhibit over 1.5 goals. Additionally, four of those same matches finished by the same 1-0 scoreline.
These sides have met just twice with both winning one H2H apiece. The last meeting in 2018 was settled by a late stoppage-time winner for Namibia (0-1). This is worth noting given that three of both teams’ previous four matches combined saw goals scored in the final 30 minutes.
Players to watch: Midfielder Manfred Starke scored Namibia’s most recent international goal to make it three goals in his previous eight games (club and country) – with all three turning out to be match winners.
Aston Villa forward Jonathan Kodjia has two goals in his previous three international matches for the Ivory Coast – both were scored with his right foot.
Stat attack: Three of Namibia’s previous four victories have been ‘to nil’.
Namibia have scored over 2.5 goals in just one of their previous 19 international matches.
There have been four penalties awarded across Ivory Coast’s previous six matches.
