Sports Ticket: Niger vs Ivory Coast CAF Live | Live Match Online | Sky Sports Live | NIG vs IVO Live Today Match Online
Games involving Ivory Coast tend to be low-scoring affairs and the fact that they are away from home could make this extremely cagey.
The hosts are likely to sit back and absorb the pressure, but the Elephants simply have too many world-beaters who could make a difference.
We are predicting a narrow victory for Ivory Coast.

Niger Republic will host Ivory Coast at the Stade Général Seyni Kountché in Niamey in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Friday.
This matchday will pit first against last, as the visitors currently occupy top spot in their group, having garnered seven points from three games to date. Niger have only three points.
Group K is one of the closest groups in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. All four teams are still in with a shout at qualifying for the tournament, as just four points separate the top from bottom.
In light of this, both sides will give their all for victory to boost their chances of securing qualification for the Afcon.
