Kenya has had a mixed start to their World Cup Qualifying campaign. They recently drew 1-1 with Burundi, a match where Duke Abuya's goal was cancelled out by a defensive error.

With four points from three matches, Kenya sits third in Group F. The Harambee Stars need to improve their finishing as they face a formidable opponent.

Ivory Coast, on the other hand, has been dominant. They secured a 1-0 victory over Gabon, thanks to Seko Fofana's goal.

Team News

Kenya

Kenya's coach, Engin Firat, made some key changes in their last match. Timothy Ouma made his debut, while Cliffton Miheso returned to the starting XI.

However, Miheso might be dropped in favour of Abuya, who scored after coming on as a substitute.

Daniel Anyembe and Johnstone Omurwa are expected to continue their partnership in central defence.

Kenya’s Predicted Lineup: Matasi; Omar, Anyembe, Omurwa, Onyango; Akumu, Odada; Ouma, Muguna, Abuya; Olunga

Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast's coach, Emerse Fae, will likely stick with his winning formula. Sebastien Haller is expected to lead the attack alongside Oumar Diakite.

The defence will be marshalled by Evan Ndicka, Emmanuel Agbadou, and Odilon Kossounou, maintaining their solid backline.

Ivory Coast’s Predicted Lineup: Fofana; Ndicka, Agbadou, Kossounou; Singo, Fofana, Seri, Kessie, Konan; Diakite, Haller, Adingra

Prediction

Kenya faces a tough challenge against an in-form Ivory Coast team. While Kenya has the home advantage, the match will be played at a neutral ground, minimising this benefit.

Ivory Coast's perfect record and superior quality make them the favourites.

Our Prediction: Kenya 1-3 Ivory Coast
