Pot 2: Tunisia, Mali, Burkina Faso, DR Congo

Pot 3: Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco, Egypt

The hosts Gabon will avoid holders Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Algeria because they are the top seeds for the draw. Cameroon, Senegal, Morocco and Egypt will not meet in the group stages.

Teams will be drawn into four groups of four with the top two teams in each group advancing into the last quarter finals.

The pots were based on the performance of the qualified teams during the AFCON final tournaments (2012, 2013, 2015), AFCON qualifiers (2013, 2015, 2017), FIFA World Cup (2014) and FIFA World Cup qualifiers (2014).
