AFCON Groups Overview
Punters can find the AFCON groups overview in the section below.
Group A is the first of AFCON groups, including Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, and Ivory Coast. The hosting nation, Ivory Coast, will face tough competition from Nigeria, who had good results in the qualification stages. Although Ivory Coast and Nigeria will likely share the first two places, the underdog teams can still qualify through a third-place finish.
In AFCON Group B, Ghana, Egypt, Mozambique, and Cape Verde will compete for the two direct spots. The overall AFCON betting favourite is Egypt, as they finished the AFCON 2021 tournament as runners-up and will look to reach the later stages.
Moreover, many punters expect Ghana to reach the knockout stages as well, while Mozambique and Cape Verde will probably aim for third place.
Group C of AFCON 2023 includes Senegal, Cameroon, Gambia, and Guinea. Senegal is the favourite among both fans and punters, as the current champions of Africa, and they did well in the AFCON qualifiers fixtures.
Another nation that is likely to qualify from Group C is Cameroon, although both Gambia and Guinea are strong contenders.
The overwhelming favourite in Group D is Algeria, who is also among the AFCON favourites to win the trophy. The team only dropped 2 points in their qualifiers, which is a record amount of points in the AFCON 2023 tournament.
Their strongest opponent in the group will be Burkina Faso, who also won their qualifiers group. Meanwhile, Angola and Mauritania will probably play for the third-place finish.
Group E will probably be the most competitive of AFCON groups. Tunisia, Mali, South Africa, and Namibia are all strong contenders for the knockout stages. However, most fans consider Tunisia and Mali the favourites to go through. Nevertheless, punters can expect strong AFCON fixtures coming from this group.
The final group in the African Cup of Nations includes Morocco, Zambia, Tanzania, and DR Congo. Although most experts consider Morocco the favourite among the nations, Zambia shouldn’t be written off. The team can play well against strong opponents, but they will need good results to finish in the first place.
