Nigeria and Ivory Coast African League of Nations Finals

The Africa Cup of Nations final (AFCON), featuring hosts Ivory Coast against Nigeria, is set for Sunday at Alassane Ouattara Stadium in Abidjan with kick-off at 20:00 GMT. This much anticipated match will be broadcast live on BBC Three, iPlayer, and the BBC Sport website, with additional radio commentary on BBC World Service in Africa and online text commentary.

Both teams are former champions, with Nigeria chasing their fourth title and Ivory Coast aiming to build on their 1992 and 2015 victories. Their only encounter in this tournament saw Nigeria defeating Ivory Coast 1-0 in the group stage. Nigeria, unbeaten and ranked higher than Ivory Coast, progressed through the tournament with impressive clean sheets and victories over Cameroon, Angola, and South Africa. Despite a challenging start, including a heavy loss to Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast rallied with knockout wins over Senegal, Mali, and DR Congo to reach the final, marking a significant achievement as the first host nation to do so since Egypt in 2006.

Will Nigeria or Ivory Coast Win?

We are expecting it to be on of the most memorable editions of the Nations Cup that so far has been a success. The competition has been praised for its organization, quality of matches, and the spirited performances of both finalists. Nigeria’s team, led by coach Jose Pereiro, emphasizes collective effort and resilience, with notable performances by Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman. Ivory Coast, under interim coach Emerse Fae, has demonstrated incredible mental fortitude and team cohesion, aiming to capture their first goal in a Nations Cup final after previous goalless outcomes. Sebastien Haller, returning from an injury and a personal battle with cancer, embodies the Ivorian spirit and hope for victory.

While we do think that Ivory Coast has a decent chance of winning the game, we are of course going to bet on Nigeria. It would now feel right to bet on any opponent and luckily Nigeria has great odds for the game. Bet9ja gives odds of 2.88 for an outright win for Nigeria and that is the bet we recommend for this game! Bet 2000 Naira and you stand the chance to win 5760, which gives you a profit of 3760 Naira.

Here at Nigeria sports betting we will be rooting at Nigeria and we hope it goes out way!
