Worth mentioning: Namibia began their Africa Cup of Nations campaign with back-to-back 1:0 losses to group favorites Morocco and South Africa and have only theoretical chances of progression through to the knock-out stages. Two of their last five encounters featured over 2,5 goals, and each of the last four saw only one of the sides scoring, with all of the recent three ending with 1:0 scoreline.
Ivory Coast was defeated by Morocco in their last outing and now the Elephants need only a victory to be sure of reaching the later stages of the competition. Much like their next opponents, Ivory Coast also “like” the 1:0 score, as three of their last four encounters ended with that result. In total two of their last five meetings produced over 2,5 goals, and only the same matches saw both involved nations to hit the back of the nets.
