Victor Osimhen Nigeria

AFCON 2024 hosts Ivory Coast in a crucial match on January 18 against Group A rivals Nigeria.

The host nation opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau as Nigeria drew Equatorial Guinea 1-1 in their opening match of the competition.

The pair are still heavily tipped to progress as the two automatic qualifiers for the Round of 16 from Group A, but this clash will be an indicator of their tournament form.

Team news

Ivory Coast could be looking to refresh despite starting AFCON 2024 with a win, with Nottingham Forest duo Willy Boly and Serge Aurier in line to open.

The latest draw is likely to force changes from the Super Eagles with Samuel Chukwueze joining Victor Osimhene in attack and Fulham centre-back Calvin Bassey in defence.

Ivory Coast (4-3-3): Y. Fofana (GK) — Aurier, Boly, Ndicka, Konan — Kessie, S. Fofana, Sangare — Boga, Krasso, Bamba.
