Punters and fans are in for a cracker when Portugal meet the Ivory Coast in this absolutely crucial Group G match up at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. Group G has been named 'the Group of Death' with these two teams joining Brazil and North Korea so if either side can win this one then they will be in great shape for the last 16. Portugal will head into the match as slight favourites to take the win but they are not the side of a few years ago and will face an Ivory Coast team that are looking strong. Portugal made it through to the Semi-finals in 2006 but struggled in qualification for this one, in the end they made it through after a hard fought play-off win over Bosnia.

The Ivory Coast had few problems in qualification and they are many people tip to be the top African team at the World Cup, they have improved no end in the past five years and will go into this match full of confidence.

Team News and Key Players

In the days before the match we will be keeping a close eye on both camps for any injuries or suspensions that may affect the betting for the match. Portugal will be wanting their star names to be ready for the match and of course they will be looking towards Cristiano Ronaldo as the man that can lead them to the three points. If the former World Player of the Year is on form then Portugal will fancy their chances of beating anyone so his fitness can not be overstated.

The same can be said of the Ivory Coast and Didier Drogba who is their Captain and talisman, Drogba is one of the top strikers in the world and if playing well is nigh on unplayable. If he arrives in South Africa on his best form then the Ivory Coast will be a dangerous dark horse in this competition who no one will fancy facing.
