Bet Live: Ivory Coast v. Senegal WC 2014 QualifierPublished October 12, 2013 by OCR Editor
Ivory Coast v. Senegal, 7pm local time.
This week marks the first round of the CAF World Cup qualifying knockout with the second legs taking place mid-November. An interesting fight will take place tonight in Abidjan where Ivory Coast meets Senegal. FIFA has classified this match as "high risk", seeing last year's 2013 Africa Cup of Nations clash between the two in Dakar was cut short due to crowd violence.
Ivory Coast, being ranked number one in the CAF, is expected to emerge victorious from the match. Ivory's line-up is expected to consist of power couple Didier Drogba and Didier Zokra and the re-appearance of Liverpool defender Kolo Toure.
However this is not going to be a walk in the park for the elephants. Senegal is one of the most talented teams in Africa remembered for its show in the 2002 World Cup, when the team made it to the quarter-finals after a stellar performance. Senegal are showing up to the match after two consecutive wins while Ivory comes after a draw and a 4-1 defeat in a friendly to Mexico back in August.
