Football tips today for Senegal – Guinea
We are heading to Yaounde, Cameroon, where Senegal will face Equatorial Guinea in a game from the 1/4-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations. Let’s preview this match in our football tips today!
Senegal are still trying to win the Africa Cup of Nations for a first time in their history so far – their best achievement is reaching the final twice. In the 1/8-finals Aliou Cisse’s boys faced Cabo Verde and enjoyed a confident 2-0 win in Bafoussam. Both goals were scored in the second half when Senegal played much better. The team’s super star Sadio Mane opened the score for his team while Bamba Dieng scored the second one in the injury time.
The Lions of Teranga had a slow start of their campaign as they scored just one goal in their first three matches. Their performance against Cabo Verde was much more convincing, though – it seems they are getting in a better shape now.
Equatorial Guinea made a solid performance in the 1/8-finals as they won against the strong side of Mali. The regular time in Limbe ended with a 0-0 draw, but Juan Micha’s team did better when it came to penalties.
Equatorial Guinea are the underdogs against Senegal and they know it very well. Now it’s up to them to use the confidence they gained with eliminating Mali. It’s always a bit tiring to play 120 minutes, so they should also find a way to regain their fitness and get ready for another tough battle on the pitch.
That’s our football tips today for the Africa Cup of Nations 1/4-finals game between Senegal and Equatorial Guinea. The Lions of Teranga are among the contenders for the trophy, but they should not underestimate their opponent. Bad things could happen if they do.
