Kenya News and Form

It was a tough start that Kenya had at the tournament and they lost 2-0 against Algeria. They conceded both goals in the first 45 minutes and never looked like getting back into it. Kenya then did get back into things as they picked off a 3-2 success against Tanzania after having been trailing 2-1 in the game. In this final group stage fixture, Kenya have to come up with a win in order to move ahead of Senegal and get automatic qualification. A draw could be enough to get them through as one of the best third-placed teams. Michael Olunga has scored two of their three goals at the tournament so far.

Kenya’s current for has been a bit hit and miss. Even though they have lost just two of their last nine games, they are W2 D1 L2 in their last five. So that does show some unpredictability on their part. Only two of their last ten games have made it over the 2.5 goal line. Because of the pressure on both teams in his game then it would be surprising if this fixture gets up to being a high scoring one. Kenya have conceded exactly two goals in both of their last two games played. Both teams have scored in just two for their last twelve games.

Senegal News and Form

All that Senegal need out of this match is a draw and that will give them automatic qualification from Group C. They started with a 2-0 win over Tanzania but then came up short in their big match against Algeria. Senegal took a 1-0 hit in that game against the group leaders. So Senegal are left to deal with a little bit of pressure, but they are the favourites for the victory. They do have the form behind them to suggest that they can get a return out of this fixture.

Before their loss against Algeria, Senegal had been on a seven-match winning streak. The defeat against Algeria is their only one suffered in their last nine played.

Kenya v Senegal Predictions

Senegal to win: Given the winning form that Senegal were on before that blip against Algeria, you have to imagine that they are going to be strong enough to snap back to winning ways. Kenya are not a tremendous threat to be fair but may play for their point which could get them a third-place finish, making themselves difficult to break down. But Senegal to sneak the win to nil looks appealing.
