Football Prediction of the Day Mali vs Coasta de Fildes
At this edition of the African Cup are teams that play quality football and teams that do not play anything.
The first category includes Morocco or Ghana, teams that have already left the competition.
In the second category we can include Nigeria, Cameroon (3-2 in optimi!), Madagascar, Algeria, Ivory Coast and Mali.
In my opinion, the match is open to any outcome, as both teams have certain values from the middle up.
I do not exclude from the calculations an equal result, but one with goals, considering that both Mali and Ivory Coast will use game systems with 2 or 3 strikers.
