Ivory Coast’s campaign during the Africa Cup of Nations has certainly not gone to plan so far, but they remain in the tournament and in with a chance – but they’ll have to really raise their game to see off defending champions Senegal in the round of 16.
The hosts fired head coach Jean-Louis Gasset after the group stage following two defeats and a single win over Guinea-Bissau, but they qualified for the last 16 as a best third-placed team regardless. Now with Emerse Fae as a caretaker boss they continue their adventure on home soil against the only side with a perfect group stage record, in Senegal.
Wins over Cameroon, Guinea and Gambia saw them top Group C and Sadio Mane and co will be optimistic about their chances of retaining the trophy – if they can get past the hosts.

ET102’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Fofana has crashed into his own post here in trying to ensure a lofted ball clears the danger zone; either he needs a bit of treatment or he’s happy to give his teammates a breather. He’s down in any case getting attention.
Just a couple more minutes until the interval; Diallo tries an ambitious overhead kick but there’s no danger of that dropping in.

ET98’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Aurier’s turn now to shoot from distance; his skidding effort is past Mendy but also past the post. Ivory Coast do seem to have the upper hand in extra time so far, just continuing that in-game momentum which saw them score late on from the spot in normal time.
Senegal really have to find a way to rouse themselves or else they’ll leave matters to fortune from the spot.

ET94’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Adingra tries to move the ball on but falls and as Mane breaks away, Aurier pulls him down. Yellow card for the right-back.
Change for Senegal: Ismaila Sarr off, Iliman Diaye on.

ET91’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Back underway as we start extra time. Sarr tries to surge forward and play in Jackson but the Chelsea man is stood offside. Will we see one team going for the victory in extra time, or a typically tight and tense additional 30?

FT’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
And there is the whistle – it’s all square on 90 minutes and we’ll have another 30 to separate the champions and the hosts.
Penalties to follow if it’s still all level.

90+7’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Last minute. Mane brings the ball down in the box and tees up Gueye, whose shot is blocked and diverted away for a corner. Needs a good delivery…it’s awful. Way out of play on the far side for a throw-in and we’ll surely now be heading to extra time.

90+4’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Koulibaly dribbles out of defence, loses the ball, rushes back and drags Adingra to ground. Should be shown a yellow card but isn’t, but it’s another chance for Ivory Coast to get the ball in the box.
Pepe’s delivery is overhit though and it floats out for a Mendy goal kick.
Back come Senegal with a long pass looking for Jackson, who has been mostly unable to get into the game so far. He’s outmuscled and the minutes tick down.

90’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Seven minutes added on and we’re into that injury time now.
A lofted ball into the box briefly looks as though Senegal might have a chance themselves, but the whistle goes for a foul. Suddenly the green shirts are anxious to get the ball forward and get on the attack themselves once more, but there’s not much cohesion to their forward play, given they’ve not really put many moves together for the past hour or so.

88’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Well now, let’s see if we have a late chance for a winner…or if they both settle for extra time.
Senegal have been a bit too passive in this game since scoring early on and a chance like that was always the risk.
Can Ivory Coast keep up the momentum in game? Pepe races into the box once more but this time Mendy is out to grab it safely.

GOAL! 84’ – Senegal 1-1 Ivory Coast
Mendy is booked for the foul and now has to compose himself to face a spot-kick from Franck Kessie, who is just off the bench.
