Betting tips & odds comparison 12.01.2022 Equatorial Guinea - Cote d'Ivoire

Betting Tip for matchday 1 of the 2022 Kamerun Africa Cup of Nations between Equatorial Guinea and Cote d'Ivoire. The game will be played at Japoma Stadium (Douala, Cameroon) on 12.01.2022 at 20:00.

Having witnessed a few upsets in the first round already, Ivory Coast will look to avoid the pitfalls when they open their AFCON campaign with a clash against minnows Equatorial Guinea at the Japoma Stadium.

With Algeria sharing the spoils with Sierra Leone in the other Group E match, a win for either of these teams will see them seize the early control of the group.

Our Africa Cup of Nations predictions in this preview will be derived from Frapapa Bonus and Betraha.

EQUATORIAL GUINEA

Equatorial Guinea is yet another one of these participants that made the cut to AFCON by the skins of their teeth in the qualifiers. Their return of 9 points from six qualifier matches was just about enough to see them through.

Having said that, they will be out to silence any doubters here and have looked decent in their recent outings, as they are currently riding on a 5 game unbeaten run coming into the tournament, including a 1-0 upset win over Tunisia in a World Cup Qualifier back in November.

They made some noise in their last AFCON appearance back in 2015 where they made it all the way to the semis and they will be looking to rekindle a bit of that magic here.

IVORY COAST

Ivory Coast are without a doubt one of the African football powerhouses. This will be their eighth successive appearance at this tourney and they made it here in style, picking up 13 points from their six qualifiers.

Les Elephant won it all in 2015 but have been coming short ever since much to the chagrin of the football-mad West African nation supporters.

Coach Patrice Beaumelle has a strong squad including a number of players from the top leagues in Europe and he will be looking to climb back to the summit of this continental showpiece.

EQ. GUINEA VS IVORY COAST PREDICTIONS

Despite many of the favorites failing at the first hurdle in the first round of matches, we do not anticipate Ivory Coast to join that long list of casualties here. They have lost just one of their last 12 matches and they will be looking to seize control of this group with a win here. We fancy them to not just win but overcome a -1 handicap @ 1.92 with Frapapa as our first call.



We have witnessed heightened physicality in the opening round in the matches played so far. We expect that theme to manifest itself in this game. A casual look at these teams recent matches shows they have both had at least 3 bookings in 4 of their last 5 games. Betraha pays an odd of 1.65 for a repeat of the same here and we feel this is great value to back as our last call.
