After losing their last group match 4-0 but still making it into the knockout stages, the Elephants dismissed their manager. Then, under interim coach Emerse Fae, they defeated Senegal in a nail-biting penalty shootout. This Wednesday at Alassane Ouattara Stadium, the scene is set for a fascinating match. In a crucial semi-final showdown in Abidjan, Ivory Coast will face DR Congo.

The host country, Ivory Coast, advanced to the AFCON 2023 semi-finals despite putting on a generally poor show. They are the bettors’ pick to go to the final, ahead of a Congo DR team who eliminated one of the favorites, Egypt. The odds of Ivory Coast winning this match are higher, however, unlike their home country, Congo DR has been exceptionally consistent and constant throughout AFCON 2023.
