World Cup 2014 Tips

Cote D’Ivoire meet Japan today at the 2014 World Cup, at the Arena Pernambuco in Recife.


Historically the two sides have met 3 times, with Japan holding a 2-1 advantage.

Ivory Coast’s most recent match was against El Salvador, where they secured a 2-1 victory.

Japan’s most recent game was against Zambia, which they took in a high scoring 4-3 affair.

Injuries & Suspensions

Ivory Coast and Manchester City player Yaya Touré is in doubt with a hamstring complaint, and will undergo a test before the match.

Prediction & Tip

Ivory Coast have an aging squad, but still have players like Didier Drogba who are capable of a cameo. Japan do possess class, but have kept only one clean sheet in their last nine matches. We think there will be goals a plenty, and will have a piece of the  31/10 that Ladbrokes is offering for 4 goals or more scored.
