AFCON Group Results 2024
The 2023/24 Africa Cup of Nations will be held between January 13 and February 11, 2024. Below are our predictions of how the results of AFCON groups will look like.
We expect Nigeria and Ivory Coast to qualify from this group, but they must be wary of threats from Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau. Equatorial Guinea stand a chance to qualify as one of the best losers.
After claiming the silver medal in two of the last three AFCON editions, Egypt will try to win the competition for the 8th time. However, they face tough AFCON fixtures from Ghana, Mozambique and Cape Verde. Egypt and Ghana should conveniently secure a place in the next round.
Defending champions Senegal must fend off Cameroon, Guinea, and the Gambia in Group C. We expect the Lions of Teranga and 5-time winner Cameroon to get out of this group.
Two-time winner Algeria are favourites in Group D but face competition from Burkina Faso, Angola, and Mauritania. Burkina Faso and Angola are likely to give Algeria a tough test, but the three teams might qualify for the round of 16, with one finishing as one of the best losers.
South Africa and Tunisia have both won the AFCON title once, and they are favourites in this group. Mali are also experienced in the competition but may have to be in top form to qualify. On the other hand, it might be too much of a task to ask Namibia to qualify from this group.
Morocco will likely make it to the next round of the competition from Group F. One of Zambia and DR Congo might finish second while Tanzania must bring in their A-game to stand a chance.
