CIV vs GNA Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 1 September


The Quarterfinals clashes are going to be rounded off with a match-up between two contrasting teams. In this game, Cote d’Ivoire is going to take on Guniea vying for a spot in the Semi-Finals Here is everything you want to know about CIV vs GNA Dream 11 Match Prediction.

CIV vs GNA Dream 11 Prediction

Cote d’Ivoire has been a storm this tournament and no one has been able to withstand their depth so far. They have a clean slate and we include the AfroBasket Qualifiers game from February then they are on a stunning nine-game winning streak. Such performance was always expected from Cote d’Ivoire but Guinea which is ranked a low 118 has exceeded expectations and has outplayed teams that experts said would blow by them. The rise of Guinea indicates the increasing depth in African basketball and although Cedric Mansare has led from the front as the go-to player, their defense and rebounding have been impressive as a team. While Cote d’Ivoire has more depth, better shooting, and an unstoppable player in Matt Costello, Guinea’s morale is high ever since they have taken care of business against one of the contenders in Egypt in what was one of the biggest upsets in the history of AfroBasket. However, Cote d’Ivoire is unlike Egypt in the tournament and will come with a mission, having a clear edge. Can Guinea men overcome another storm to continue their package of surprises, it looks highly unlikely but you may never know!
