The African Cup of Nations (AFCON) will start in January and the champion will be crowned after the final on February 6. Which side may become the main contender for the jackpot?

Betting on AFCON 2021
It is hoped that customers who bet on the African Cup of Nations will be able to do so, because Nigeria allows betting by law. All bets are regulated by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission. There are many leading websites that can place bets on this action in early 2021.

Except for the defending champion, it is difficult to start anywhere else. Algeria defeated Senegal 1-0 in the final to win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. That success was the second time they won a Grand Slam; their previous success was in 1990. Few people would object to the claim that the Algeria team is currently the best country in Africa. For the African Cup of Nations, they will be led by the duo of Manchester City star Riyadh Mahrez and Lyon Olympic team Islimani, who has scored four goals during the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Algeria’s recent performance has been stable, winning two of the past three games and scoring 13 goals. That offensive talent will once again be the driving force behind success. However, since 1957, only three countries have successfully defended the AFCON championship.

You don’t have to go back long to find the dominance that Egypt enjoys in the African Cup of Nations. Egypt won three unprecedented victories between 2006 and 2010. No country has been as successful as Egypt in the competition because they have achieved seven victories in history. However, they will seek greater efforts in this year's competition, and they have declined in the top 16 stage of 2019.

Their chances of success will certainly be high, especially if Mohamed Salah plays for his country. Salah's participation in the game may be prevented by his current club Liverpool. This means that those who wish to bet on Egypt should check today's Nigeria news before betting on the most successful party in AFCON history.

Senegal is the highest ranked team in the FIFA official rankings. They will participate in the African Cup of Nations in 2021. This means they will have an excellent opportunity. However, they have yet to win the prestigious game in their history. Their best performance was two runner-ups in 2002 and 2019. In the recent AFCON final, Senegal defeated Algeria 1-0. However, it is difficult to ignore their obvious chances in the 2021 game because they have one of the strongest teams in the game.

They are in good form recently because they finished second in the COSAFA Cup, but lost a penalty kick in the final against South Africa. They won the opening two World Cup qualifiers; they scored five goals, only allowed once. In Sadio Mane, they also have one of the best players on the African continent. If the Senegalese want to go further in the game, the Liverpool star can play a key role with Ismailia Sal.

Nigeria is not without the opportunity to participate in the African Cup of Nations this year, because they have a very progressive and exciting young team. Their past success in the competition is also worth looking back at, as they have won AFCON three times before. Their most recent success was in 2013 when they defeated Burkina Faso in the final.

Nigeria has also been in very good form in recent months. They have won the Cameroon game, won the last two games and only conceded one goal. However, they will face the difficult challenge of leaving the group because they are in group D with Egypt, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan.
