Senegal Prediction – Can Senegal continue march to finals?

Senegal collected back-to-back wins in the Africa Cup of Nations last time out with a 1-0 victory over Uganda in the round of 16.

They’d earlier finished in 2nd spot in Group C having been edged out of top spot by group winners, Algeria.

A 2-0 win over Tanzania got Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign off to a flying start, but they then suffered a narrow 1-0 loss to rivals, Algeria.

However, a resounding 3-0 win over 3rd placed Kenya in their final match of the group stages was enough for Senegal to seal 2nd place.

Results overall for Senegal have produced a very promising return as they’ve collected 9 wins from their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Within this impressive 10-match sequence, Senegal have kept an equally impressive total of 8 clean sheets as well.

It’s been this solid defensive foundation upon which Senegal look to launch a serious assault on winning this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is the one to watch for Senegal tonight.

Benin Prediction – Can Benin cause a shock?

After finishing in 3rd spot in Group F, Benin have surpassed all expectations as they prepare for their quarter-final clash with Senegal.

Benin remained unbeaten throughout the group stages as they were involved in 3 draws with Ghana, Guinea-Bissau and Cameroon respectively.

They progressed to the knockout stages of this competition by courtesy of being among one of the best 3rd place finishers.

A penalty shoot-out win over Morocco in the round of 16 after the scores were still level after 90 minutes, secured their spot in these quarter-finals.

However, the fact remains that Benin have still yet to register a win during normal time in these Africa Cup of Nations, and a lack of goals could be their undoing.

Whilst 3 goals in 4 matches isn’t a complete disaster, they now face a Senegal side who possess a very solid defensive unit.

Although Benin bring a 7-match unbeaten run into this last eight clash with Senegal, they’ve lost their last 3 meetings on the trot against Wednesday night’s opponents.


Key-Facts – Senegal v Benin

  • Benin bring a 7-match unbeaten run into this clash against Senegal
  • Senegal have won 9 of their last 10 matches overall in all competitions
  • Senegal have kept an equally impressive total of 8 clean sheets in these last 10


Betting Tips Verdict

Benin have exceeded all expectations but they could be heading for a fourth straight defeat to Senegal here.
