Lesotho have scored less than three goals in seven of their last eight matches.

Lesotho are winless in five 2023 AFCON qualifiers. Four of Lesotho’s last six matches have been played at half-time.

Ivory Coast vs Lesotho Prediction

Ivory Coast have already booked a place at the next Africa Cup of Nations by virtue of their hosting status. However, the Elephants will be looking to end their qualification campaign with a win and usurp Zambia as group winners.

Lesotho put in a memorable performance in the COSAFA Cup, but finished last in their AFCON qualifying group for the second time in a row.

We are backing Ivory Coast to get a comfortable win on top of a clean sheet.

Results Prediction: Ivory Coast 2-0 Lesotho
