thumbnail Hello,

Alain Giresse's men must strike twice without conceding a goal should they dream of flying Africa’s flag at the Brazil 2014 World Cup

Senegal welcome the Elephants of Ivory Coast in the 2nd leg World Cup qualifying play-off on Saturday night. The Terrenga Lions face a rising battle as they will try to overturn their visitor’s advantage after suffering a 3-1 defeat in the first leg.

The Elephants hold their two-goal lead thanks to Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and an own-goal by Ludovic Sane.

The visitors are yet to taste competitive defeat in 2013 and are favourites at 2/3 (1.66) with Ladbrokes to seal their place in Brazil with a third successive qualification victory on the road.

Senegal have only won one of their three 'home' matches since being banned from their own national stadium due to the riot that broke out after their defeat to these same opponents in last year's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier but are available at 19/5 (4.80) with Ladbrokes to come out on top at the Stade Mohamed V.

The draw is available at 5/2 (3.50) that the match ends in a no winner, no vanquished situation considering the fact that  Les Lions de la Teranga have drawn five of their last nine fixtures.

The Elephants will be missing Cheikh Tiote and Geoffroy Serey Die, both of whom are suspend while Arthur Boka and Siaka Tiene will miss out due to injuries. Even at this, they are available at Evens (2.00) to go goal crazy between 2-3 goals.

Didier Drogba tops the goal scoring market at odds of 7/2 (4.50) to find the back of the net first while Winfried Bony is a 6/1 (7.00) play with Ladbrokes to set the stadium alive with goals.
