Day two of the African Cup of Nations sees tournament favourites the Ivory Coast start their campaign facing Burkina Faso (full match preview here). Boasting one of the most talented squads in the world, let alone Africa, the Flying Elephants are odds-on to claim victory in their opening match of the games.

Closer to home, Manchester City welcome Blackburn to Eastlands for a rare bout of Monday night football in the Premier League (full match preview here). The Citizens will be full of confidence for the visit of Rovers, with Mancini’s men riding high after three straight wins since the Italian waltzed into town, while its a complete reversal of fortunes for the Lancastrians who have failed to taste victory in their last seven outings.

Believing both the Ivory Coast (2/7) and Manchester City (1/2) will win their respective matches, we hope a £2 bet turns into a £3.86 return.
