It all comes down to Senegal vs Algeria to see who will win the 2019 African Cup of Nations. A tournament of giant killings, dramatic finishes and great goals, it really has lived up to all expectations. Tonight's final now has the makings of being a classic. And you can watch every kick from anywhere on Earth - with this dedicated Senegal vs Algeria live stream guide.

Senegal vs Algeria - where and when

Today's African Cup of Nations final takes place at the 75,000 capacity Cairo International Stadium. 

Kick-off today is at 9pm EEST local time, meaning a 8pm start for those looking to watch the game live in the UK.

Senegal, who have never won the competition previously, go into the game as favourites with Betfair, having conceded just one goal in the 2019 tournament so far. While Algeria, who reached the final with a dramatic last gasp Riyad Mahrez free kick, will be aiming to win the tournament for the fist time since their triumph as hosts in 1990.

Key to Senegal's march to the final has been its water-tight defence, but that solidity may have been dealt a blow. Man mountain centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly is suspended after picking up a harsh booking in their semi-final against Tunisia.

Algeria have a 100% record to protect following their dramatic win over Nigeria, with only the Ivory Coast taking them beyond normal time and into penalties. Like Senegal, Algeria also have a significant absentee at the back, with steady first choice right-back Youcef Atal ruled out with a fractured collarbone.

The two teams met in the group stages, with Algeria winning 1-0 thanks to a second-half Youcef Belaili strike. Algeria have proved to be something of a perennial bogey team for Senegal, having won only 4 of their 13 encounters, with their opponents edging the head-to-head with five victories.

Will Liverpool forward Sadio Mane make it a perfect summer by leading Senegal to their first AFCON title to go alongside winning the Champions League, or will Algeria's Riyad Mahrez add an AFCON winners medal to his Premier League Champions one for Man City?
