CIV vs TUN Dream 11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 5 September


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.

CIV vs TUN Dream 11 Prediction

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.
