Senegal’s AFCON 2024 knockout stage campaign kicks off with a Round of 16 showdown against Ivory Coast on January 29.

Ivory Coast, who sacked Jean-Louis Gasset mid-tournament, secured just one victory in the group stages, with two goals scored, and they face a huge test to try and stay in the competition.

Senegal vs Ivory Coast prediction

Senegal’s solidity in the competition has maintained their position as favourites to retain the trophy in the coming weeks and an inconsistent Ivory Coast could be facing an early exit.

Seven goals scored and just one conceded shows the strength of Senegal at AFCON 2024 and they will be eyeing a quarterfinal against either Mali of Burkina Faso.

Prediction: Senegal 2-0 Ivory Coast
