Ivory Coast will face South Africa at Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny in Abidjan in an international friendly match. With the CAF World Cup qualifiers less than a month away and the AFCON tournament starting in January, both teams are eager to use this opportunity to fine-tune their performance before a hectic international competition schedule begins. Despite already securing automatic qualification for AFCON as the host, Ivory Coast actively participated in the qualifiers and had a successful campaign, finishing second in their group with 13 points, tying with group winners Zambia.

In a recent friendly match, Ivory Coast played against Morocco and achieved a 1-1 draw. As a result, Jean-Louis Gasset’s team has won three matches, drawn one, and lost only one in their last five matches across all competitions. Their performance appears to be steadily improving with each game. Historically, matches between these two teams have been closely contested, with each side winning one of the last two encounters, and the two matches prior to that ending in a draw.

South African football has faced challenges in recent years, failing to qualify for a World Cup since hosting the tournament in 2010. Nevertheless, there has been notable improvement in the past year. Since then, Hugo Broos’s team has played three friendly matches, winning one and drawing two, including a draw against Eswatini over the weekend. Notably, the visiting team has not conceded a goal in over 360 minutes of play, dating back to mid-July.
