Africa Cup of Nations: Sunday match betting previews, tips & TV details
Algeria v Kenya | Senegal v Tanzania | Morocco v Namibia
Eurosport 2 from 3.30pm Sunday
Algeria v Kenya
Algeria's opening match at the Africa Cup of Nations against Kenya pits one of the most inventive attacks against one of the sturdiest rearguards.
The North African side have the excellent trio of Riyad Mahrez, Sofiane Feghouli and Yacine Brahimi to call on in the final third and topped their qualifying group with nine goals in their six matches.
Kenya are outsiders in a group which also features Senegal and will be reliant on midfield pivot Victor Wanyama as they look to grind out results against stronger opponents.
But, although it's unlikely to rain goals in Cairo, Algeria should still have too much for the Harambee Stars, having breached Mali, Burundi, Tunisia, Gambia and Togo in their last five assignments.
Algeria to win & under 3.5 goals
1pt 11-10 Betway, Coral, Ladbrokes
Algeria are unbeaten in their last five matches.
Senegal v Tanzania
Senegal are odds-on to finish top of Group C and can dominate one of the most one-sided encounters of the tournament against 250-1 antepost shots Tanzania.
Sadio Mane is undoubtedly the star man for the Lions of Teranga but it is their formidable spine featuring Kalidou Koulibaly and Idrissa Gueye which could carry them far in the tournament.
They have kept five clean sheets in their last six games and shut out one of the Afcon favourites Nigeria in their final game before the start of the tournament.
Senegal to win to nil
1pt 20-23 Coral, Ladbrokes
Senegal have conceded only one goal in their last six games.
Morocco v Namibia
Two-time Afcon winner Herve Renard knows what it takes to perform in this tournament and his Morocco side can outclass the potential whipping boys of Group D Namibia.
The North African conditions should suit Morocco better than most and an attack comprising Ajax starlet Hakim Ziyech, Southampton man Sofiane Boufal and promising Leganes forward Youssef En-Nesyri can put them to the sword.
Namibia have conceded in four of their last five games, including against Malawi and Mozambique, and have shut out only the Seychelles, and the gulf in class could show at the Al-Salam Stadium.
Morocco -1 goal on handicap
1pt 11-10 Betfair, Paddy Power
Morocco conceded only three goals in their six qualifying matches.
