Will Côte d’Ivoire make it two wins out of two in this international window?
On Wednesday, Ivory Coast hammered Burundi 4-0, thanks to goals from Jean-Philippe Krasso, Max-Alain Gradel, Ibrahim Sangaré and Nicolas Pépé.
Les Éléphants have now failed to qualify for back-to-back World Cups, despite featuring at three in-a-row beforehand.
Right now, Jean-Louis Gasset’s side are focussed on AFCON 2024 and, given that Côte d’Ivoire will host that competition, they’re expected to go all the way.
Burkina Faso meantime were Africa Cup of Nations runners-up in 2013, also reaching the semi-finals in 2017 and earlier this year.
Back in January, les Étalons knocked out Gabon and Tunisia before being ousted by Senegal in the semi-finals.
In this friendly at Stade de Marrakech, Ivory Coast are the more likely to prevail.
