Player Focus

Ivory Coast will be without Oumar Diakite and Odilon Kossounou due to suspension, with both players sent off in the quarter-final clash against Mali.

DR Congo have not reported new injuries or suspension worries ahead of Wednesday’s showdown; they are likely to retain their best starting 11 as the pone that overcame Guinea in the quarter-final.

Seko Fofana

The midfielder’s work ethic will be crucial for the Elephants as they look to gain some form of momentum and fluency in their play.

Fofana will connect midfield and attack, offer to press from the front foot and drop deep to offer creative options and defensive solidity.

Arthur Masuaku, Chancel Mbemba, and Yoane Wissa

DR Congo will have to retain their attacking approach as they look to break down the Elephants. Masuaku, Mbemba, and Wissa will offer the spine they will need to be solid in attack and steady in the attack. 

Mbemba will organize the defensive phase, while Masuaku will join in on the attack, Wissa will offer penetration and cutting edge.

Tactical Analysis

Ivory Coast will largely look to dominate the ball, pass it from the back, and create chances in the final third.

DR Congo will be pragmatic in their approach and use their pace to attack in transitions against the hosts.
