2021 Africa Cup of Nations Top Goalscorer Odds

Riyad Mahrez Algeria

Mohamed Salah Odds: 4/1

Egypt forward Mohamed Salah come in as the favourite to finish as top scorer in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations at 4/1.

Salah is the top scorer in the Premier League with 16 goals and nine assists in 20 matches, averaging a goal every 111 minutes and is arguably the best player in the world on current form. The 29-year-old has scored 43 goals in 73 appearances for his national side heading into this year’s competition.

Last time out in AFCON 2019, Odion Ighalo won the Golden Boot with five goals to his name, giving context as to what it’ll likely take for a player to finish as top scorer in the competition and with Salah facing the likes of Nigeria, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau in the group stages, there is a good opportunity for him to get some early goals under his belt.

Riyad Mahrez Odds: 7/1

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez is the second-favourite to finish as 2021 AFCON top scorers according to the bookmakers.

The 30-year-old has 26 goals to his name in 70 caps and finished as the second top scorer in the last edition of this competition with three goals to his name, as he helped inspire his side to the trophy itself, with his most notable moment coming in the semi-finals as his 95th-minute goal defeated Nigeria 2-1 to send his team into the final.

So far this season, Mahrez has six goals and four assists to his name in 16 Premier League matches, as well as having scored five in six Champions League games, seeing the former Leicester City man priced at 7/1 to finish as top scorer in AFCON 2021.

Mahrez has the odds of 7/1 to finish as top scorer in the upcoming AFCON.

Sadio Mane Odds: 8/1

Another Premier League player that is also included on this list of those aiming to be the top scorer at the 2021 AFCON is Sadio Mane.

The Liverpool forward was a beaten finalist last time out with Senegal, but, did have a good individual tournament, scoring three times along the way against the likes of Kenya and Uganda.

Mane has scored 26 goals in 80 international caps for Senegal, on top of the eight goals and one assist that he has managed in 20 Premier League games so far this campaign for Liverpool.

The 29-year-old will be desperate to inspire his side to their first AFCON win having come so close last time out.

Mane is priced at 8/1 to win the 2021 AFCON Golden Boot. <br/>

Sebastien Haller Odds: 12/1

Ajax striker Sebastien Haller has become somewhat of a sensation around Europe, as the former West Ham United and Eintracht Frankfurt man has been in fine goalscoring form.

The 27-year-old is currently the top scorer in the Champions League having scored 10 goals and created two assists in six matches so far this campaign, on top of the 12 he has fired in so far this season in the Dutch Eredivisie.

With Haller playing for a side who are one of the favourites for the tournament as a whole, with the likes of Nicolas Pepe and Wilfried Zaha in Ivory Coast’s attack alongside him, there is a good chance that the Ajax man could help his side throughout the competition in terms of goals.

Haller is priced at 12/1 to finish as top scorer at AFCON 2021. <br/>

Vincent Aboubakar Odds: 12/1

Vincent Aboubakar is a name that lies in AFCON folklore, having scored the winning goal in the 2017 final for Cameroon.

The 29-year-old who plies his trade at Al Nassr in the Saudi Arabian first tier has scored 25 goals in 77 caps for his country and will be desperate to impress on home soil. Aboubakar, who formerly played for the likes of FC Porto and Besiktas has scored five goals in 15 league appearances this season, not setting the world alight, but, in front of a home crowd, could find some inspiration.

Islam Slimani Odds: 14/1

Former Leicester City striker Islam Slimani will be hoping to help Algeria retain their title as champions of Africa coming into AFCON 2021.

Slimani, who currently plays for Lyon in Ligue 1, where he is having a fairly average season, scoring one league goal in 12 appearances, whilst managing finding the back of the net three times in four matches during their Europa League campaign.

What must be said though, is that Slimani does have a good record for his national side, as he has found the back of the net 39 times in 80 games for Algeria, hence why he is on this list of players who are in contention to be AFCON 2021’s top scorer.

Kelechi Iheanacho Odds: 16/1

Kelechi Iheanacho comes into AFCON 2021 in Cameroon looking to find some goalscoring form to kick-start his season.

The Leicester City striker has scored just four goals across all competitions this season, including the winner in the Community Shield when the Foxes defeated Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley.

With Nigeria being one of the stronger sides in this year’s AFCON on paper and having seen the likes of international teammate Ighalo be the top scorer last time out, there is every chance that Iheanacho could shine at the tournament.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Odds: 18/1

The final player on this list is Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who will be determined to prove himself in the competition having been frozen out by Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium.

Aubameyang, who is now 32-years-old has scored 29 goals in 71 matches for his national side, Gabon, and will be desperate to help guide his side through a tricky group of Morrocco, Ghana and Comoros.

The Gabonese striker has scored seven goals and created four assists in 15 appearances for Arsenal this season and will be looking to carry this form into AFCON 2021.
