To make your predictions for the Africa Cup, it is of great importance to be up to date with the moment of form of the different teams that participate in the tournament. Likewise, the moment of form of the key players for each national team is remarkable. But of course… the trade and the history of each team is very important to place your bets on the Africa Cup.
What do we know?
Senegal: Its squad stands out, with Mané, Gueye, Koulibaly and Mendy under sticks. After losing in the final against Algeria, now they will want their revenge
Egypt: With Mohamed Salah in their ranks they cannot be ignored as favourites. Without big names like others but with a very solid team they have great options.
Ivory Coast will stand out for its offensive capital, with Peé, Kessié and Haller in their ranks
Morocco: Players of the level of Bono, Munir, En Nesyri or Achraf undoubtedly place them as a rival to take into account in betting on the African Cup.
Cameroon: Every year it is in the pool of favorites, with a solid block where Choupo-Motig, Anguissa, Ekambi and Onana stand out
Nigeria and Tunisia also stand out in the fan
As a last precedent in national team soccer, Senegal and Nigeria had an outstanding role. Neither African club made it to the round of 16, but the Senegalese had a win and a draw and the Nigerians a group stage win, both missing out on the knockout stages. Paradoxically, Egypt, the favourite, failed to score.
Advanced tips to maximize your earnings
Betting on a tie in the Africa Cup is a very profitable option, especially in the group stage. For example, on the first day, five of the eight games were sealed with the equalizer on the scoreboard. In total, 10 of the 24 group stage matches ended in a draw. Excluding the matches where the favorites played (Egypt, and Ghana), there were 9 draws in 19 matches. If we also exclude Senegal, the ratio is 50%: 8 draws in 16 games.
The conclusion is clear: betting on a tie between lower level teams is very profitable in the group stages.
On the other hand, you may have to put the handicap aside. Although it is a good tool, in the 20187 edition only 8 of 34 games had a difference of two goals in the result (none more than two). Yes, it is probable, on the other hand, that the goal is 0 in one of the clashes. In 17 of the 34 matches, at least one of the participants left their goal at 0. Keep that in mind!
