Ivory Coast will look to make it two wins from two at the Africa Cup of Nations as they take on a spirited Sierra Leone on Sunday at 4pm UK time.

Les Elephants got off to a winning start on Wednesday against Equatorial Guinea thanks to captain Max Gradel’s early strike. Sierra Leone will provide a stern test for them on Sunday, however, after holding reigning champions Algeria to a goalless draw in their first match.

Ivory Coast team news

Ivory Coast’s defensive issues may be eased by the return of Serge Aurier and Wilfried Kanon from suspension, although Willy Boly is expected to continue to miss out through injury and Sylvain Gbohouo is unavailable. Premier League stars Wilfried Zaha and Nicolas Pepe will likely be left on the bench once again.

Ivory Coast predicted XI: B. Sangare; Aurier, Kanon, Bailly, Konan; I. Sangare, Seri, Kessie; Gradel, Haller, Cornet

Sierra Leone team news

The Leone Stars turned in an impressive performance to draw with Algeria in their first match against the odds, so manager John Keister will perhaps opt for the same XI here. Mohamed Kamara’s display between the sticks in that game has been one of the talking points of the tournament so far.

Sierra Leone predicted XI: M.Kamara; Kakay, Caulker, Bangura, Wright; Bundu, Quee,  J. Kamara, Turay; K.Kamara, A.Kamara.

Scoreline prediction: Ivory Coast 1-0 Sierra Leone
