Africa Cup of Nations 2019: Super Computer predicts which team will lift the trophy in Egypt

21 Jun

The first Africa Cup of Nations played during the summer months gets under way on June 21.

Host nation Egypt, captained by Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah will be looking to get off to a good start when the Pharaohs face Zimbabwe at the Cairo International Stadium.

Salah and Egypt will want to put their disappointing performance at last year’s World Cup behind them

A number of world class players will be on show including Salah’s Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane as well as Morocco and Ajax star Hakim Ziyech and Crystal Palace talisman Wilfred Zaha, who will be representing the Ivory Coast.



According to the bookies Egypt, who have won the competition seven times, are the favourites to win but AFCON is an inherently unpredictable tournament.

Luckily, talkSPORT.com has input the latest data into its trusty Super Computer and have had the results delivered.

You can see who will qualify from each group below and the how the knockout stages will pan out.
