The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations tournament has been rearranged, and will now take place in 2024, Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Patrice Motsepe has confirmed.

The tournament was due to take place between June and July 2023, but will now instead be played out at the beginning of 2024 to avoid Ivory Coast’s rainy season.

The decision was made to postpone the dates of the tournament until after the World Cup finals in November and December, rather than bring them forward, meaning the tournament will be played in the winter for the second year in a row.

Who are the favourites of AFCON 2023? What will be the predictions to favour according to bookmakers?

With just few days to go until the tournament, here are Feedinco predictions of the top six contenders for the Africa Cup of nations 2023. Alo we added the outright odds for each team as a finalist outright winner.
  • Egypt - The Pharaohs are still licking their wounds after their shock elimination by Bafana Bafana on home soil at the last edition, and the hangover from that exit resulted in a slow start to the qualifying campaign.
  • Odds: 7.0 -Bet now

  • Morocco - The north Africans barely broke a sweat during qualification, and enjoyed the best defensive record of all 48 African teams in the qualifying group stage -- conceding just once in six matches.
  • Odds: 11.0 -Bet now

  • Nigeria - The likes of John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses, and Odion Ighalo have been moved out of the side, and while the new faces boast talent, there's a sense that Gernot Rohr is yet to truly get the best out of this squad.
  • Odds: 8.0 -Bet now

  • Ivory Coast - Some faces from the 2015-winning squad -- Max Gradel, Eric Bailly, captain Serge Aurier -- still remain, but the squad has been bolstered dramatically by then.A central-defensive partnership of Bailly and Wolves' Willy Boly -- one of two high-profile new faces to commit to the Elephants in late 2020 -- has the potential to be the best defensive duo in Africa, while Franck Kessie, so influential at AC Milan this season, can run the show from midfield.
  • Odds: 8.0 -Bet now

  • Algeria - The reigning champions, Algeria boast the kind of offensive quality -- and strength in depth in the final third -- that none of Africa's top sides can match.They were the continent's top scorers during qualifying - scoring a whopping 19 goals across six matches which, for context, was five more than any other team.
  • Odds: 7.5 -Bet now

  • Senegal - The West Africans have re-established themselves as one of Africa's top sides in recent tournaments; they were only eliminated from the 2018 World Cups on yellow cards accrued and were defeated finalists at the 2019 Afcon.With Aliou Cisse overseeing a steady ship, they have consistency in selection and, critically, they have different ways of beating teams.
  • Odds: 6 -Bet now

AFCON Group D - Group of Death

Afcon 2021 Groups
- Afcon 2021 Groups

Group D is the exception of the six in the first round of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. For four reasons.
  • 1. it is the only one that contains three winners of the event. Egypt, Nigeria and Sudan. Guinea-Bissau, who have a clean record.
  • 2. the Egyptians (7, a record), the Nigerians (3) and the Sudanese (1) have between them won eleven titles. No other group at the tournament, which will take place in Cameroon from 9 January to 6 February, has done better.
  • 3. No other group, either, is composed of teams accumulating fifty-four participations in the final phase. Twenty-five for the Pharaohs, nineteen for the Super Eagles, seven for the Nile Crocodiles and three for the Djurtus.
  • 4. Group D is the only one without any French-speaking countries. All the others have at least one. So Arabic, Portuguese and English will be spoken, as well as, probably, the dialects of the competing countries.

which two teams will automatically qualify for the Round of 16? Egypt and Nigeria are the favorites. But since the African Cup of Nations sometimes throws the odds in their favor, we should add that Sudan and Guinea-Bissau could spring a surprise.
