Team News
Ivory Coast
Despite failing to see out the win against Sierra Leone last time out, we expect Beaumelle to name a similar starting XI on Thursday, meaning we could see Nicolas Pepe and Wilfried Zaha start on either flank with Sebastien Haller occupying the central role in attack for the second game running.

Eric Bailly picked up a slight knock which saw him make way for Odilon Kossounou in the aforementioned game and the Manchester United defender is a doubt for the Elephants.

Meanwhile, given the stakes of the game, Belmadi could ring a few changes at the attacking end of the pitch as Algeria are yet to register a goal at the tournament despite their star-studded frontline.
Ivory Coast possible starting lineup:
Sangare; Aurier, Kossounou, Deli, Konan; Kessie, Seri, Sangare; Zaha, Haller, Pepe

Algeria
Islam Slimani and West Ham United forward Said Benrahma were both named on the substitutes' bench against Equatorial Guinea last time out and the duo will push for starring roles here.

On the injury front, Djamel Benlamri was forced off the pitch nine minutes after the interval through an injury against the National Thunder and the veteran defender is a major doubt for Thursday's clash.

Should the Qatar SC man fail to recover in time for the game, 31-year-old Mehdi Tahrat could come into the fold for his first starting appearance of the tournament.
Algeria possible starting lineup:
M'Bolhi; Bensebaini, Atal, Mandi, Bedrane; Belkebla, Brahimi, Boulaya; Mahrez, Bounedjah, Benrahma
Prediction: Ivory Coast 1-1 Algeria
