The defending champions, Ivory Coast will face Morocco at the Stade d’Oyem in what seems like a must win game for the Ivorians.
The Ivorians are one of the favorites to win the competition by many pundits, but two draws in their first two games have put them on a blink of an early exit from the tournament.
Ivory Coast is having a hard task in front as they will face well-organized Morocco in their final and a must win game. Anything less than a win will put them out of the Nations Cup.
The Atlas Lions showed a brave performance in their second game as they came from behind to beat Togolese team 3-1.
Morocco will like to end Ivorians journey in the ongoing edition of the Nations Cup in Gabon this week. However, Ivory Coast is having the edge against Morocco in their previous 6 games as they were unbeaten.
The defending champions have won 3 out of their last 6 games and drawn 3 games against Morocco.
