Equatorial Guinea is set to face Ivory Coast in a highly anticipated clash at the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday.
Equatorial Guinea supporters will be eager to witness a replica of their previous match, which ended in a triumphant 4-2 victory against Guinea-Bissau. They controlled the game with a 51% possession and a total of 8 shots at goal, out of which 6 were on target. The scorers for Equatorial Guinea were hat trick hero Emilio Nsue, who scored in the 21st, 51st, and 61st minutes, Esteban Orozco with an own goal in the 37th minute, and Josete Miranda in the 46th minute. On the other hand, Guinea-Bissau had 13 attempts on goal, but only managed to get 2 on target. Zé Turbo scored the sole goal for Guinea-Bissau in the 93rd minute.
The Equatorial Guinea backline deserves significant recognition based on their latest performances. They have showcased great defensive skills, as they have only conceded 3 goals in their last 6 games.
Ivory Coast’s faithful are looking for a bounceback performance, after suffering a defeat in their previous match against Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations. In said match, Ivory Coast dominated possession with a remarkable 64% and made 14 attempts on goal, out of which 3 were on target.
