AFCON fixtures today: Nigeria vs Ivory Coast preview

Nigeria demonstrated resilience against South Africa's Bafana Bafana in the semi-final, prevailing in a penalty shootout. With a chance to secure their fourth AFCON title this weekend, they face the tournament hosts, who have gained momentum in the knockout stages under José Peseiro.

Ivory Coast, after a lacklustre group stage, gained momentum by overcoming defending champions Senegal, Mali, and DR Congo. Despite a previous loss to Nigeria in this tournament, Emerse Faé's squad face a tough challenge against the Super Eagles.

In their head-to-head history of 28 encounters, Nigeria and Ivory Coast have nine wins each, with 10 draws.

Nigeria, currently on a five-match winning streak with no losses at AFCON 2024, boast a solid defensive record, conceding only two goals in six matches and maintaining four clean sheets. Additionally, they have scored in every match.

In contrast, Ivory Coast won three consecutive games, but two of those victories required at least 120 minutes. Their defensive vulnerabilities are evident, having conceded seven times in their last five matches.

The tactical analysis suggests an intriguing matchup between Nigeria's efficient and solid team and Ivory Coast's resilient yet defensively challenged squad.
