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.
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!

(Last Match Stats)
Costello has been in incredible touch throughout the tournament and no big has had an answer for him on both ends of the floor. His low-post game with a face-up style allows him to dominate match-ups, whereas he also works hard on the defensive end, rebounding, and can dish out some pretty dimes. Costello is one of the favourites for the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy Basketball setup.
Mansare is the best scorer in the Guinea squad and he possesses the skill to shoot the ball and also drive to the hoop. Cedric relies heavily upon the three-ball and has made 13 out of 34 shots from there in four games. He has been one of the highest producing players in the tournament averaging 16.3 PPG, 3.8 APG, and 3.5 RPG.
Diabate is an excellent ball-handler and the best passer in the Cote d’Ivoire setup. He can also chip in with scoring and also plays tough defense. He is averaging 6.3 APG so far.
Abdoulaye is the best all-around player in the squad and he can chip in with points, rebounds, and assists, playing like a hybrid of guard-forward. Sy plays a ton of minutes is averaging 7.8 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 5.5 APG so far
Cheick Sekou Conde
Cheick is a wide-bodied Power Forward who works hard on the post and likes to create inside finishes. However, he can also shoot from mid-range and beyond, showcasing a lovely touch. Conde also works hard on rebounding and has averaged 14 PPG and 5.5 RPG so far.
