Senegal Vs Cote d’Ivoire live match

There will be fireworks at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium as defending champions Senegal and hosts Cote d’Ivoire do battle in one of the marquee ties in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations round of 16.

This all-West African affair will pit two sides who had realistic aspirations to go all the way and another heavyweight will suffer an early ouster here.

The Teranga Lions breezed through the group stage, winning all three games to book their spot in the knockout round as Group C winners. Their last group game came in a routine 2-0 victory over Guinea after they had already secured their spot in the round of 16. Abdoulaye Seck and Iliman Ndiaye scored second-half goals to help Alou Cisse’s side claim the win.

Cote d’Ivoire, meanwhile, snuck into the round of 16 as the fourth-best third-placed team in the group stage. They had to wait until proceedings were concluded to know their fate, having suffered an embarrassing 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Equatorial Guinea in their final group game. Tournament top-scorer Emilio Nsue scored a brace while Pablo Ganet and Jannick Buyla also scored to compound the Elephants’ woes.

There have already been repercussions for their disastrous group stage, with the Ivorian football federation having parted ways with Jean-Louis Gasset. They have appointed former international Emerse Fae to oversee proceedings for the rest of their stay in the tournament.
