The Africa Cup of Nations reaches a booming crescendo this weekend, with Nigeria taking on hosts Ivory Coast in the final in Abidjan. The Super Eagles reached the showpiece courtesy of a nail-biting semi-final win over South Africa, edging the Bafana Bafana 4-2 on penalties. Meanwhile, the Ivory Coast made it through to the final thanks to their 1-0 last four win over DR Congo, Sebastien Haller’s goal proving the difference. It has been a tournament filled with fraught, tense games which have gone the distance – one more could be on the cards on Sunday night.

With both sides well-matched, it’s likely to be a fraught affair and it could easily need a shootout to separate the two after 120 minutes. While both teams have each scored 4 goals in total over the 3 knockout games, only 2 of those 4 goals have come in the first half for Nigeria – and just 1 for the Ivory Coast. Add to that the fact that the Ivory Coast emerged out of the group stage with 2 goals across the 3 matches and a 3-goal deficit, and this seems like a bit of a longshot selection. If we expect anyone to score in the first half based on tournament performance to date, it will be Nigeria.

However, something tells us that the hosts are going to be buoyed up by the fervor home crowd and we expect Cote d’Ivoire to play less defensively than they have in other stages and take early, aggressive chances to secure the lead in the final. It’s a quick, secure, and hassle-free process.
