In what has been an upset-filled Round of 16 stage in the newly expanded 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Mali now looks to add their name to the list of victorious underdogs when they face the 2015 AFCON champions, Ivory Coast. History is certainly not on their side, with Mali winning just three of 30 previous games between the two countries, according to The South African, while losing 18.

In fact, the Eagles have not beaten their East African neighbors since 1983, and not since 1977 in a competitive match. Nonetheless, Ivory Coast Coach Ibrahim Kamara has warned his team to be wary of the Mali game, in a tournament that has seen tournament favorites Egypt and Morocco fall already. Whether Mali can pull off a stunning upset of their own will be decided in the match that will live stream from Suez.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the Mali vs. Ivory Coast Africa Cup of Nations Round of 16 knockout match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. Eastern European Time on Monday, July 8, at the 27,000-seat New Suez Stadium, in Suez, Egypt.

In both Ivory Coast and Mali, that start time will be 4 p.m. GMT.

In the United Kingdom, the live stream starts at 5 p.m. British Summer Time, while in the United States the match gets underway at noon p.m. ET, or 9 a.m. PT. In the Republic of Indonesia, the game gets underway at 11 p.m. on Monday night, Western Indonesian Time, 1 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, Eastern.

One player on the Ivory Coast side who could make a difference in the match is Crystal Palace star Wilfred Zaha, who, according to the BBC, has been restricted to only 111 of the 270 minutes his team has played so far. But Zaha claims that he is not distracted by his club football future, after Premier League club Arsenal offered Palace more than $50 million for his services.

“The only thing that’s on my mind right now is trying to win this cup,” he told the BBC.

Ivory Coast are playing for their third AFCON title, while Mali have made it as far as the final only once, and that was in 1972, when they lost to the Republic of Congo.
