Equatorial Guinea vs Ivory Coast Betting Tips

  • Double Chance – Draw or Away 2/25 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Emilio Nsue 24/5 
  • Anytime Goal Scorer – Jean-Philippe Krasso 31/20 

Double Chance – Draw or Away 2/25

The good news for the hosts is that they have not lost to this opponent in their last three meetings. That also equates to this opponent failing to keep a clean sheet against the Elephants in all three of the above-mentioned encounters. That is a boost that the hosts need for history to be on their side, however Equatorial Guinea will also smell blood and try their best to keep a clean sheet and ride this game out. Walking away with a point for them will be as good as picking up all three points.

Equatorial Guinea will be a tough nut to crack. They have not suffered a defeat in their last 12 matches. They have been the first team on the score sheet in their last 5 matches and they have been the first half winner in 4 out of their last 5 matches. They are a formidable force and a team that can hurt any team in this year's CAF Africa Cup of Nation

We have gone with a double chance in this game. The hosts will throw everything at Equatorial Guinea, and this might make for a fantastic game of football if both teams show up at their best on the day. odds on the Draw or Away market are sitting at 2/25. As good as Guinea have been, I believe the hosts will find a way to edge this.  

Anytime Goal Scorer – Emilio Nsue 24/5

A versatile footballer with a talent for scoring goals and making his presence felt. He has been on the score sheet three times already in this competition and is one of the main goal outlets for this Equatorial Guinea side. Emilio Nsue has been a star turn since swapping the Spanish national team for Equatorial Guinea. He has 37 appearances and 15 goals for Equatorial Guinea. He scored a Hattrick against Guinea-Bissau, and we expect him to find the back of the net in this fixture as well. The odds on him being an anytime goals scorer is set at 24/5. 

Anytime Goal Scorer – Jean-Philippe Krasso 31/20 

Cote d'Ivoire will be hoping that this will start to click upfront. Especially with their front mane Krasso. He got a goal against Guinea-Bissau on the opening day, but he was not able to get another against Nigeria on match day two. The pressure is on him and the forward pack to produce the goods on match day three if they are to advance to the next round. The odds on him being anytime goal scorer is 31/20.
