The Quarterfinals clashes are going to be rounded off with a match-up between two contrasting teams. In this game, Ivory Coast is going to take on Guniea vying for a spot in the Semi-Finals Here is everything you want to know about CIV vs SEN Dream 11 Match Prediction.
Cote d’Ivoire or Ivory Coast has been the hottest team in the African continent and has won ten games in a row if we include the Qualifiers. Their form can be tapped by their last victory against Guinea as they brushed them off 98-50. They are yet to allow more than 70 points in the tournament and are both the best offensive and defensive unit of the tournament. Meanwhile, Senegal has been led by Gorgui Dieng who has received tremendous help from Brancou Badio, however may be a bit short-handed in terms of depth when compared to their competitors in the game. It will be interesting to see how Matt Costello and Gorgui Dieng matchup in the game and although Ivory Coast does have the edge in terms of form, the Senegalese men can’t be ignored because of their physical style. Senegal will need a lot from the likes of Ibrahim Faye and Henry Pierria to match-up against Nisre and Vafessa Fofana who have been in great touch. The game may well be decided how much the guards show up for each team but Ivory Coast holds the aces.
