Burkina Faso vs Senegal, stats, odds. The semi-final match at the Africa Cup will see Burkina Faso and Senegal, who almost always play to a draw between them. Can the Stallions hold out this time and not lose in regulation time on February 2?
The Burkina Faso team is unexpectedly strong in this tournament and reached the semi-final stage with minimal energy, saving their energy for the main matches of the Africa Cup. Only in the opening round of the group stage, Kamu Malo’s side lost to hosts Cameroon (1-2), and then began to play very collected in defense and efficient in attack. In the quarter-final, the Stallions beat Tunisia (1-0) narrowly, outclassing them on all counts.
Senegal also look very cohesive in the tournament and even outclass their semi-final opponent in attacking potential. Ally Cissé’s side have an excellent 11-match winning streak without defeat, winning eight times in that period. In the quarter-finals, the Teranga Lions quietly defeated Equatorial Guinea (3-1) and are considered one of the main contenders for the title in this draw.
Both squads are having a very successful tournament and have deservedly made it to the penultimate stage. Senegal are vastly superior to Burkina Faso in terms of naming and attacking potential, but the Stallions’ ability to play defensively and pragmatically up front is impressive. This meeting, in our opinion, will not be an easy walk for the Senegalese.
At stake is a ticket to the final, and the teams, in our opinion, first of all, will try not to make mistakes in defense, counting on a sharp lunge or a clear error of the opponent. We don’t expect any goalscoring extravaganza, which is a rarity at the Africa Cup and we opt to keep the performance to a minimum.
Our prediction is a total of less than two goals. Betting odds of 1.67 for such an outcome in 1xbet bonus code
The Stallions have not lost three matches in a row against Senegal and look no worse than their prominent opponent. The Burkinabe defence looks defensively solid, while the attack makes the most of every breakthrough opportunity. We assume that the home side will be successful again in the semi-finals and at least not lose in regulation time.
Our second bet would be – Burkina Faso not to lose. This bet can be placed for 1.96
