Ivory Coast vs. Guinea-Bissau: Where to Watch the Group 1 Phase of the 2023 African Cup of Nations Live Stream

Ivory Coast and Guinea-Bissau will meet again in the CAF Africa Cup 1st round at the Stade Olympique Alassane Ouattara Stadium, Abidjan Saturday, January 13, 2024. Here’s the preview, h2h stats, predicted line-up, TV channel info, live streaming service providers and how to watch online.

This Saturday, the Alassane Ouattara Stadium will witness the opening match of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations between hosts Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea-Bissau. This match will be the starting point for both teams in their journey in this continental tournament.

Cote d’Ivoire, as host of this edition, has shown strong performance in recent years. They made their 10th consecutive appearance in this competition, a commendable achievement. However, they certainly don’t want to stop here. After being eliminated from the round of 16 in the previous edition by Egypt, the final runners-up, they are determined to surpass that record this time.

On the other hand, Guinea-Bissau has qualified for this competition for the fourth time in a row. However, they have never made it past the group stage in the last three editions. This year, under tactician Baciro Candé, their ambition is to reach the knockout stage and make history.

Both teams have made intensive preparations ahead of this tournament. They each played a friendly match last week as part of the warm-up. Cote d’Ivoire recorded a landslide 5-1 victory over Sierra Leone, while Guinea-Bissau suffered a 6-2 defeat to Mali.

In head-to-head meetings, the two teams have only met once before, with Cote d’Ivoire recording a 4-1 win. However, that was a game that took place almost two decades ago, and a lot has changed since then.

Cote d’Ivoire enters this match in excellent form. They are unbeaten in their last six matches, including friendlies, and have recorded three wins in a row. They have also scored 16 goals in their last three games, while conceding just one goal.

Meanwhile, Guinea-Bissau is winless in their three appearances in the AFCON group stages. They have drawn three times while suffering six defeats. They have also failed to score in their last seven group stage matches at AFCON.

Considering the performance and quality of the squads of both teams, Cote d’Ivoire is considered superior. They have a balanced squad of young and experienced players, and are expected to field a strong starting XI. On the other hand, Guinea-Bissau seems to be facing big challenges.
