Ivory Coast have endured mixed results in their recent matches. In their last six fixtures, they have managed three victories along with a draw and two defeats. Ivory Coast finished second in their World Cup qualification group and hence won’t be travelling to Qatar. However, the nation must step up from that disappointment and now look to have a positive run before their African Nations Championship opener against Senegal.
For Burundi, it was another disappointment in the qualifying stages as they still wait for their first ever World Cup finals appearance. Unlike their opponents, Burundi won’t be participating in the African Nations Championship either. They are certainly the underdogs in this fixture but the country would like to take on the challenge.
Both the coaches might gamble with some untested combinations in this friendly with a view to prepare for future games. All the eyes will be on Ivory Coast’s frontline featuring Wilfred Zaha and Nicolas Pepe.
Ivory Coast possible line-up: Sangare, Aurier, Diomande, Konan, Singo, Sangare, Seri, Gbamin, Pepe, Zaha, Gradel
Burundi possible line-up: Nahimana, Nduwarugira, Nsabiyumva, Ramazani, Ndayishimiye, Bigirimana, Mossi, Nshimirimana, Amissi, Abdallah, Donasiyano
