Who are the Favourites to win Africa Cup of Nations?
The following sides have the biggest chances to win the Africa Cup of Nations 2023.
The defending champions will once again be the biggest favorites to clinch the title. They have got the most balanced squad and the current form also speaks in favour of them. With the likes of the Mane, Koulibaly, Mendy, etc. in their tank, the Senegalese are gonna be the toughest challenge for all other participating sides. The Lions of Teranga also stand in the 1st position in the pre-tournament Oddschecker.
The Algerians have 2 titles in their pocket and will be looking to make it 3. According to the Oddschecker, they are pretty close to Senegal and are the 2nd top favorites. Mahrez, Slimani, Feghouli, Bentaleb, Ait Nouri, etc. will be their key guns in the upcoming AFCON. The Desert Warriors won their latest AFCON in 2019. They had a disappointing AFCON on the last occasion but will look forward to turning the scenarios on its head.
The Elephants also have 2 AFCON titles and on their mission to the 3rd the biggest advantage they will get at their home. No doubt, the hosts will be one of the major contenders for the trophy. With stars like Kessie, Haller, Aurier, Kamara, Bolly, etc. they would fancy their chances on their home soil.
The Moroccan fairytale in Qatar still hasn’t lost its fragrance. They were simply the best African side by miles at the last World Cup and would love to continue in that way in the upcoming AFCON. Deservingly, they are among the top 5 demandants of the next AFCON title. The Oddchecker can’t disagree as well. With a winning odd of 8.00, they currently stand beside the hosts just beneath Senegal & Algeria. They have plenty of match-winning stars who can sparkle right at the biggest stages and the name list includes Bounou, Hakimi, Mazraoui, Amraabat, Ziyech, En Nessyri, and more.
With as many as 5 AFCON trophies in the cabinet, the Indomitable Lions are the 2nd most successful side in the competition history. The last time they had their hands on the trophy was in 2017. The successor of Eto’o would love to make it 6 but surely it won’t be an easy run in Ivory Coast. But Cameroon has already shown, on their day, that they can even downfall a mighty powerhouse like Brazil. Aboubakar, Onana, Mbuemo, Toko Ekambi, etc will have to play a major role if the side wants to complete their mission Hexa in the Afcon.
Up next is the tournament’s most successful side ever. Egypt has 7 AFCON titles but unfortunately, they have been trophyless for 13 years with their latest AFCON coming in 2010. The Pharaohs played 2 more finals since then but lost on both occasions in 2017 and 2021. They are the current runners-up side and will try to complete their Octa-Mission this time. Can Mo Salah, Elneny, Terezeguet, and co cross the finishing line this time around? Only time can answer but count them in as one of the favorites.
The Super Eagles featured in 7 AFCON Finals but only twice in this century while winning just once in the last 29 years. They are among the mediocre favorites but have a good chance to win the title although it would be a long run for the men in Green. Iheanacho, Iwobi, Lookman, etc could be the key weapon for the Nigerian boss.
The Carthage Eagles might not have an enriched history in the previous AFCON editions but they are among the top 10 contenders for the title on this occasion. Tunisia’s only title came in 2004 and can they repeat the history after 19 years? They made a good start to their WC qualifiers with back-to-back wins. It would be a huge task to win the AFCON 2023 but one may think the Tunisians have got the ability to fight.
Featuring in 9 finals, Ghana is one of the top 3 most successful sides in the competition history. However, they haven’t won the competition since 1982. They reached the finals twice in this century but had to finish as the runners-up on both occasions. Can they break the 41-year drought in the Ivory Coast? Certainly a tough job but not impossible for the Black Stars. The Ayew brothers, Inaki Williams, Amartey, etc. will have to carry the Ghanan flag from the front line.
