Germany vs Ivory Coast Olympic Games Live Football Score 28 Jul 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Germany is going head to head with Ivory Coast starting on 7 Jun 2015 at 20:00 UTC at Lansdowne Stadium stadium, Ottawa city, Canada. The match is a part of the World Cup, Women, Group B.
A very close encounter appears in prospect between Germany and Ivory Coast with the former needing the three points to avoid elimination from the tournament. Germany’s attack has been impressive over the course of their group campaign so far, scoring twice vs Brazil albeit in defeat and racking up three goals in their thrilling 2-3 win over Saudi Arabia. They will need to adopt a similarly attacking playstyle here, but whilst that may once again lead to success infront of goal it may also see Ivory Coast benefit offensively, taking advantage of the inevitable holes in the German defence who have conceded six goals already in this competition. With that in mind, both teams to score looks very much the shrewd move to back, with this match potentially going either way.
Germany U23 take on Ivory Coast U23 at the Miyagi Stadium in Rifu for the final group fixture of the men’s football tournament at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The Germans know that only a victory would put them into the next round.
Runners-up in the 2016 edition, Die Mannschaft are currently third in Group D with three points, while the Elephants are a point ahead in second place.
The loss to Brazil has proved costly for Germany, although the Ivorians have been very impressive at the Games and no one can say they don’t deserve to go through.
A 2-1 victory over Saudi Arabia in the opening game was followed by a goalless stalemate against the Selecao. The Africans now need just a point from their last fixture to confirm their place in the quarter-finals.
