Tip Spain - Ivory Coast

Spain Ivory Coast Prediction published on July 28, 2021 at 10:46 PM - modifiedat July 28, 2021 at 10:48 PM

Spain U23 were minutes away from a win in their final Group C game against Argentina U23 at the Tokyo 2020 Games but a late leveler to make it 1-1 pegged them back. Still, they managed to finish top of the group and will be facing off with one of Africa’s representatives, Ivory Coast U23 in the quarters. In the four matches Spain have played this year, they’ve gone unbeaten, winning just one, while they’ve managed to score in three, but at the Olympics they’ve scored two goals in the last two matches. They have a strong team, with players who have played at the highest level, including at the Euro 2020. They already faced a side from the CAF region in this competition, drawing 0-0 with Egypt and just as it were at the Euros, their main issue has been a blunt attack.

Ivory Coast are also not the best to bank on in attack; they’ve scored three goals in the three group matches, and two were own goals – against Germany and Saudi Arabia. They finished second in their group with four points and draws with Brazil and Germany will be key highlights for the West African nation. In their last two matches, they had suspended players after red cards in the first and second matches but this time the full squad is available for selection. Two of their three matches at this competition have produced under 2.5 goals and in one they’ve kept a clean sheet. In four of their last five matches, both teams have scored.

Back it to end in under 2.5 goals.
