Nigeria Analysis: Looking for 4th title win
Nigeria has performed incredibly well thus far in the competition, finishing second in Group A and earning a spot in the knockout stages. They drew 1-1 with Equatorial Guinea, the winners of their group, and then defeated Guinea-Bissau (1-0) and Ivory Coast (1-0), their fellow finalists. To get to their 8th AFCON final in their history, the Super Eagles defeated Cameroon in the round of 16. They also defeated Angola in the quarterfinals and South Africa in the semifinals. They will try to win their 4th cup this time around after having won it in 1980, 1994, and 2013. After initially being unable to travel with the team due to stomach discomfort, Victor Osimhen was declared fit to lead Nigeria versus South Africa, so he’ll probably be available for this game.
Ivory Coast Analysis: Fifth AFCON final ever
Conversely, Ivory Coast can be regarded as extremely fortunate to have survived their group. In their first game, they defeated Guinea-Bissau 2-0; however, they lost to Nigeria 1-0 and were humiliated 4-0 by Equatorial Guinea. They qualified as the worst 3rd-placed team as a result. On penalties, though, they eliminated Senegal, the reigning champions, 5–4. They advanced to their 5th AFCON final in history by defeating DR Congo (1-0) in the semi-final and Mali (2-1) in the quarterfinals. In what looks to be an intriguing match, the Elephants will try to make it 5 on home soil. Regarding Ivory Coast, Simon Adingra of Brighton and Haller are both back in shape and playing well.
