When the two sides played each other in Group A of this edition's tournament, it was the Super Eagles who came on top by a solitary goal, but the hosts will try with all their might to write the script in their favour in the ultimate showdown.


The Africa Cup of Nations is down to its last two teams as Nigeria and host nation Ivory Coast get set to battle for the title in Sunday’s final.


These two sides have already met at this tournament, with Nigeria defeating Ivory Coast 1-0 in group play.


Nigeria has advanced to the final on the back of a stout defense, having conceded just two goals in six games at AFCON so far. The Super Eagles reached the final after sneaking past South Africa on penalties in the semifinal.


Ivory Coast and Nigeria meet at Stade Alassane Ouattara on Sunday for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations final and the pair's second meeting this edition. The Super Eagles beat the Elephants back in Group A, but much has changed since then with Emerse Fae now leading the Ivorian team after Jean Louis Gasset's dismissal when it looked as if the hosts had been eliminated on home soil. Suddenly, Ivory Coast arrive in Abidjan with a spring in their step while Nigeria have battled their way here after flirting with late disaster against South Africa before coming through on penalties.


Nigeria have three AFCON titles to their hosts' two coming into this one, but Jose Peseiro's men have been the more fancied side overall in this edition. Defense has been key for the Nigerians this time with goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali a revelation between the sticks and a four-game run without conceding a goal only ended by a late South African penalty. Victor Osimhen will be key again despite disallowed goals limiting his current total to just one goal, even though the reigning African Footballer of the Year has had a key role. The last meeting was settled 1-0 by a William Troost Ekong penalty and this one promises to be equally as tight. An Ivorian win would mean a 12th host nation success at AFCON but a first since 2006 when Egypt triumphed at home.


These two sides met in Group A of this tournament with Nigeria prevailing 1-0 and now they meet again. And a lot has happened since then.


The Africa Cup of Nations final takes place in Abidjan on Sunday with huge expectations on the hosts after an incredible, and unexpected, run to the final.


But a solid, yet unspectacular, Super Eagles stand in their way and led by Victor Osimhen, Nigeria have been the most consistent side at this tournament in the Ivory Coast and are hungry for a first Africa Cup of Nations trophy since 2013 which was their third all-time.

The Ivory Coast won it all in 2015 (their second title in history) and after sacking their manager Jean-Louis Gasset after the group stage, which they just squeaked through as the fourth-best third-place team, they’ve flourished in the knockout rounds under the guidance of caretaker Emerse Fae. Sebastien Haller and Simon Adingra coming back to full fitness has helped and so too has the incredible home support.


Both teams have gone through penalty kick victories and drama galore as all roads lead to Abidjan’s magnificent Alassane Ouattara Stadium on Sunday and a brilliant, chaotic tournament has a final between two powerhouses to give it the perfect send-off.

Prediction


Ivory Coast have little to lose given how unexpected this run to the final has been while there is expectation on Nigeria now. Home advantage should see the Elephants triumph and edge out the Super Eagles. Pick: Ivory Coast 2, Nigeria 1.


After four weeks of showcasing what the continent has to offer, the Africa Cup of Nations is down to a final two.


Hosts Ivory Coast play Nigeria in today's showpiece final in what has been the most thrilling AFCON in decades.


But what’s made it so good? Has the on-pitch drama been matched by the eyeballs watching the tournament?


And what does AFCON need to do off the pitch to match the success on it?


Host Ayo Akinwolere is joined by former Ivory Coast defender, and 2012 AFCON runner-up, Sol Bamba as well as The Athletic's Jay Harris to discuss and debate what has made AFCON 2023 such a success.


Meanwhile, Ivory Coast has reached the final after a dramatic turnaround that began with the sensational mid-tournament firing of manager Jean-Louis Gasset.


The French coach was sacked after Ivory Coast lost two of three group-stage matches, including a 4-0 loss to Equatorial Guinea. At the time of Gasset’s firing it was unclear if the host nation would reach the knockout stage, but the Elephants did manage to sneak in as one of the top third-place teams.


From there, interim coach Emerse Faé has overseen a penalty-shootout win over defending champion Senegal in the last 16, followed by a wild victory over Mali in the quarterfinals and another dramatic extra-time win over DR Congo in the semifinal.
