Africa Cup of Nations Tournament Rules

The tournament will have 24 teams divided into 6 groups of four teams each. The teams in each group will play each other in a single round robin format and be ranked according to their performance. The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the round of 16 where they will be joined by the top four 3rd-placed teams from the groups. From the Round of 16 onwards, the teams are paired to play each other and the winners proceed to the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and eventually the finals. Before the final match there will be a 3rd-place play-off match between the 2 semi-finals losers.

In the group stage, teams are ranked on points. In case two or more teams tie on points, the head-to-head matches are first considered, followed by goal differences, and then goals scored. If there are teams tied after all these considerations, there will be drawing of lots to determine which of the teams proceed.

Africa Cup of Nations Qualification

A total of 52 teams entered the qualification round for the AFCON 2023 tournament. The teams were seeded based upon their June 2019 FIFA World Rankings. This saw 44 teams going directly to the group stage while the remaining 8 had to play a preliminary round to determine the winners to join the group stage of qualification. The final 48 teams were drawn into 12 groups of 4 teams each. The teams in each group played each other in a home-and-away format, and the top 2 teams from each group qualified for the tournament proper.

Top Scorer in AFCON Qualifiers

The African Cup of Nations Qualification featured standout performances from players across the continent. Leading the goal-scoring charts (10 goals) was Victor Osimhen from Nigeria, known for his pace and deadly finishing skills. Sadio Mane from Senegal, and Youssef Msakni from Tunisia also had impressive runs as top scorers (5 goals each). These players showcased their immense talent and will be exciting to watch in the upcoming African Cup of Nations 2023.

Tips and forecasts including the following bets:

Single bets + odds predictions

Casual 1×2 bets, double chance, over & under and correct score bets. Moreover halftime/fulltime, number of goal and handicap bets. If applicable, we will go even deeper and provide even more special bets and odds.

Accumulator bets + odds predictions

If we find out that it is even more clever to place a combination of bets instead of just a single bet, we will suggest that to you. Bear in mind, a combination of bets can increase your winnings substantially as odds multiply!

System bets + odds

If the situation is like this: Favorites are very likely to win, this means that odds will be comparatively low. In this case we would suggest you should take the risk and place a 2 out of 3 system bet. That means you combine 3 matches to a system bet! Take 2 banker bets (2 favorites with low odds) and 1 more risky bet on an outsider that is in good shape. If the outsider wins and one of the other 2 bets as well, you can increase your winnings substantially. If the risky bet goes wrong, you still will have the 2 banker bets and you can win as well.
