Senegal News and Form

Senegal took a W2 L1 record from their three group stage games, which left them as runners up behind Algeria. Their defeat came against Algeria, who are playing in the other semi-final. Their group stage campaign put Senegal through to the round of sixteen to face Uganda. It was a narrow 1-0 win that they took, the lone strike coming from Liverpool’s Sadio Mane. It was another 1-0 win that they produced in the quarter-finals against Benin. It was another England Premier League player who got their goal too, Everton’s Idrissa Gueye.

So there have been some narrow margins in their knockout progress, but they are the tournament favourites now and they have been getting their rewards. It does help a lot when you can call on star power like Sadio Mane. He is their top scorer in the tournament so far with three goals. The Lions of Teranga have been in terrific form since last October. They have won 10 of their last 11 games now. During that extended streak of form, they have claimed nine clean sheets. They have conceded just once in this campaign.

Tunisia News and Form

It was a comfortable time that the Eagles of Carthage had in their quarter-final. They got paired up against Madagascar, the minnows having had that astounding run to the final eight. Tunisia made light work of the fixture and produced a 3-0 win, which was, incidentally, their first win of the entire tournament. They had drawn all three group stage games and then had played out a 1-1 draw against Ghana in the round of sixteen. Tunisia had conceded in the 92nd minute of the tie against the Black Stars. The Tunisians took a penalty shoot-out win 5-4.

They too are in some great current form. They are now undefeated in eight with a (W4 L4) record running in that spell. There has only been the three clean sheets from them in that sequence, but two of those three have been produced in their last three games. They have made it past the quarterfinals for the first time since their 2004 campaign. Youssef Msakni is the top scorer for the Tunisians at Afcon 2019 with two. It has been a fairly strange campaign from them because of their lack of ability to pick up their wins. They were so much better against Madagascar though. But will they be able to reproduce that against a stronger opponent?

Senegal v Tunisia Predictions

Senegal to win: A tight semi-final should be playing out in this one. However, in trying to split them it is more likely to be Senegal who finds a winning touch. They have those touches of extra quality like Sadio Mane, to complete the job. Senegal to win by a one-goal margin.
