Ivory Coast

As hosts, Ivory Coast had already automatically qualified for the finals.

But they will also finish in the top two of their group. With home support, the Elephants have AFCON odds on their side.


Nigeria is one of the most successful nations in AFCON history and easily qualified from their group with games to spare. Now they will be going for their fourth AFCON title – and the first since 2013.

Therefore, many betting sites place them as one of the top AFCON favourites.


The Atlas Lions surprised everyone by reaching the semi-finals of World Cup 2022, although they found qualification for AFCON a little tougher. But they will still be expected to do well in Ivory Coast.


The current champions, Senegal, have some of the best African players in the world and breezed through qualification. They will be one of the teams to beat at the tournament and are in fine form.


Egypt lost the most recent AFCON final on penalties and will be keen to gain revenge in Ivory Coast. Mo Salah is the standout player, but the Pharaohs will be one of the most feared teams at the finals.
