This is the ultimate game of the AfroBasket and the winner will take the cup home. In this scenario, Ivory Coast will battle out against defending champions Tunisia as the two hottest teams in the tournament fight it out. More details about CIV vs TUN Dream 11 Match Prediction will be given here.
Ivory Coast has won eleven games in a row since the AfroBasket Qualifiers and they have swept aside all their opponents. Ivory Coast has held all the teams they have played under 70 points in the five games they have won in the tournament so far and no shooters have struggled against them. However, Tunisia is one team that possesses two guards in Abada and Roll who can change that and Tunisia is one team that can breach the 70 points mark against them as well. This game is going to be the toughest for Ivory Coast because the Frontline of Mejri and Romdhane combined with the guard combination of Roll and Abada can really present a lot of matchup issues at both ends. On the other hand, Tunisia has a problem in its hands with an unstoppable Matt Costello surrounded by shooters like Nisre, Fofana, and Konate. While Roll-Abada presents a superior guard match-up, the bench depth of Ivory Coast is scary so even if Tunisia has the advantage through the starting five they would have to worry about the number of weapons Ivory Coast can deploy. Tunisia may have a slight edge but Ivory Coast will not go down easy and may as well topple them.

(Last Match Stats)
Costello has been a headache for every team Ivory Coast has faced so far. He is shooting an incredible 31/42(73.8%) from inside the three-point line and just has too many offensive weapons for the opposition.

Mejri is a seven-foot-one-inch Center who has proven to be a force of nature throughout the tournament. He uses his length to shoot over defenders and has a varied low-post skillset, making him difficult to guard. Salah also poses difficulty for offensive players and can reject shots at a high clip. He is averaging an impressive 14.6, 6.0 RPG, 2.4 BPG, and 2.2 SPG.
Nisre Mimi Zouzoua
Nisre is an incredible shooter and has shot more and more with each game. He has rattled 52% of threes on 25 tries which is an incredible number. The guard is averaging 11.8 PPG and 4.4 RPG for the tournament.
Roll has found his groove in the tournament and his playmaking has helped Tunisia get some easy scores. Michael is also a well-versed offensive threat and can shoot and drive off the dribble and can also shoot off the catch while making hard cuts to the rim. Michael has averaged 15.4 PPG, 5.4 APG, and 1.4 SPG.
Fofana is a forward who can do a lot more than scoring. He is efficient from inside the three-point line, clicking on 15/24 shots, and can also rebound the ball while handing out assists. Vafessa is averaging 11.0 PPG and 5.2 RPG along with 1.8 SPG.
Makram Ben Romdhane
Makram poses a lot of challenges at the Forward as he drives to the basket and also shoots from long-range. He is also a hardworking rebounder and a tough player to score against. Romdhane is averaging 14.8 PPG, 7.6 RPG, and 2.4 SPG.
