The field has been blown wide open after the high-profile exits of current holders Algeria and four-time winners Ghana, and viewers will be able to cast their eye over some of the remaining favourites in the coming days.

On Monday, host nation Cameroon come up against a Comoros side who sensationally dumped Ghana out of the competition last week, while Egypt have the unenviable task of facing an Ivory Coast team who are yet to lose a game in the tournament.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch all of the action...

When are Egypt vs Ivory Coast and Cameroon vs Comoros?

Egypt will come up against fellow heavyweights Ivory Coast on Wednesday January 26th at 4pm GMT.

Between them, the two nations have won AFCON nine times, with Egypt claiming seven of those titles.

Viewers won’t have to wait that long to see hosts Cameroon in action, however.

The five-time champions, who last won the tournament in 2017, will try to avoid an upset against surprise package Comoros on Monday January 24th.

That game gets underway at the later time of 7pm GMT.

How can I watch Egypt vs Ivory Coast and Cameroon vs Comoros?

Both matches will be shown on the BBC Sport website, the BBC iPlayer. and via the Red Button.

The two games will be shown live on Sky Sports too.

BBC Sport have also confirmed that they will show two quarter-finals on BBC Two, while both semi-finals and the final will be broadcast live on BBC Three.

Who are the favourites to win Egypt vs Ivory Coast and Cameroon vs Comoros?

At the time of writing, Cameroon are strong favourites to book their place in the quarter-finals at a price of 1/4, as per SkyBet.

By contrast, Comoros are priced at 11/1.

Egypt’s clash against Ivory Coast is expected to be a tighter affair, but Mo Salah and his teammates head into it as outsiders at a price of 13/5 compared to their opponents’ 6/5.
