Group A action in Abidjan will see the hosts take on Guinea-Bissau to kick off the campaign.

Strong competition is expected for Group A. Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria has joined Guinea-Bissau and the Ivory Coast.

Senegal won the first Africa Cup of Nations two years ago, beating Egypt, the record holder, on penalties in the championship match.

The goal of Ivory Coast football is to get back to the top of the African football league. They may regain their position with a solid showing in Group A.

In the African Cup of Nations champions,  the Elephants have won two times. In addition to coming in second in 2006 and 2012, they won the crowns in 1992 and 2015.

Despite having a wealth of talented players throughout the years, Ivory Coast has not won as many AFCON medals as many would have predicted.

Africa Cup of Nations team Guinea-Bissau have never emerged victorious. Indeed, the national squad first debuted in the AFCON tournament in 2017.

Guinea-Bissau has only scored twice in the competition and has never won a game.

Guinea-Bissau scored both of its goals in the competition's 2017 iteration. Since then, none of the AFCON competitions for which Guinea-Bissau qualified has seen them score a goal.

Ivory Coast defeated Sierra Leone 5-1 in friendly play to get ready for the encounter on Saturday.

The Elephants had won every tournament for the previous three years. 

After defeating the Seychelles 9-0, they triumphed 2-0 versus the Gambia.

Compared to their previous three matches, the Ivory Coast will be up against much tougher opposition. 

Players that compete in Europe and the Middle East make up the team.

Serge Aurier of Nottingham Forest will lead the team as captain. The primary danger to the Ivory Coast goal will be Sebastien Haller of Borussia Dortmund. 

Nicolas Pepe, a former attacker for Arsenal, will provide the club with another goal threat.

The players on Guinea-Bissau's team are not as good as those of their rivals. Where the goals will come from is the major question.

Their greatest scoring danger ought to be Mama Balde of Lyon. Nevertheless, in 21 international appearances, he has only scored three goals.

Among the team's most well-known players are perhaps Balde and Almeria Houboulang Mendes. 

Guinea-Bissau may be able to advance to the next round of the competition if they can begin with a point.

There were just 100 goals scored in 52 games at the last AFCON competition, which was poor scoring. Just 1.92 goals were scored on average in each game.
