After a disappointing start to the reigning champions, Ivory Coast will be looking to bounce back from their opening game draw when they play DR Congo at Stade d’Oran in the second round of the African Cup of Nations Finals.
The title holders will head into the second game in Group C without a win or even a goal as they drew their first game against Togo 0-0. WIlfried Zaha and his team struggled to create any significant opportunities in front of goal against Togo on Monday. The Crystal Palace midfielder was the most impressive in his team.
Players like Jonathan Kodjia, Salomon Kalou and Wilfried Bony have been really poor and couldn’t create any chances to break the Togo defensive wall.
DR Congo have won their first game of the competition against a tough Morocco side. A win from the Leopards against Ivory Coast will mostly secure their advancement to the next stages of the competition. DR Congo are currently in the topping the group with their opponents two points behind them.
Francis Ibenge side’s only goal came from great works of Kabananga Junior. Later in the game Junior got injured and was replaced by experienced Mbokani. Lomalisa Mutambala received two yellow cards against Morocco and he was sent off. With the impressive record, DR Congo has talent and they will not be handicapped by the unavailability of the two players.
