Cote d’Ivoire will welcome Guinea-Bissau to the Alassane Ouattara Stadium in the 2023 AFCON opener on Saturday.

Cote d’Ivoire are the hosts for this edition of the continental tournament and have been drawn alongside Guinea-Bissau, Nigeria, and Equatorial Guinea in Group A.

The hosts are making their 10th consecutive appearance in the competition. They were eliminated from the round of 16 in the previous edition by eventual runners-up Egypt and will look to improve upon that record this time around.

Guinea-Bissau have qualified for the competition for the fourth time in a row. Interestingly, they have been eliminated from the group stage in the last three editions and will aim to qualify for the knockout stage.

Both teams warmed up for the competition with a friendly last week. The hosts registered a comfortable 5-1 win over Sierra Leone thanks to goals from Ousmane Diomande, Franck Kessié, Jonathan Bamba, Jeremie Boga, and Lazare Amani. The visitors, on the other hand, lost 6-2 to Mali.
