Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2022 match:
Thursday’s AFCON qualifier at Dobsonville Stadium pits together Lesotho and Ivory Coast, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Lesotho failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Comoros, and, as a result, the bookies see them as underdogs in the clash with Serge Aurier and Co. Both Motebang and Makha are pushing for a start, speaking of the home side.
The Elephants, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 3-1 win over Zambia, and, no doubt, they want to get their job in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as soon as possible. Ivory Coast are more of a team than Lesotho, and we predict that the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday. Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha is widely expected to return to the starting line-up after coming as a substitute in the Group H opener.
