The Africa Cup is the main football event at the moment, although watching the games of the tournament is not the greatest fun given the level of the teams and their performance. Here’s our prediction for Senegal v Equatorial Guinea. Full statistics and all odds for the match can be found at 1xbet.ng app download.
Senegal Drag the Stars
Senegal are among the main contenders for the final success in this continental championship. Stars such as Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and Liverpool striker Sadio Mane are playing here. Even with such big names, the team are unimpressive in terms of play, not having conceded once in four games, although they have only scored three times. In the 1/8 finals, they managed to beat Cape Verde 2-0, only to start scoring when two players were sent off. The Senegalese are unimpressive, it will be interesting to see them in a battle against strong opponents.
If Equatorial Guinea make it to the Africa Cup final, then they’ll definitely make it to at least the quarterfinals. They got this far thanks to their solid defensive performance, conceding just one goal in their opening match in the tournament, and then scoring three times. In the 1/8 finals, they got past Mali in the penalty shoot-out, with each team taking eight shots. Equatorial Guinea are able to extinguish the opponent’s activity, which is clearly reflected in the figures.
The teams last crossed paths in qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup, then Senegal won twice, 3-0 at home and 1-0 away.
The Senegalese are the favourites for this pairing, although the odds are gradually going up. It’s all logical, as wins for Mane and company are hard to come by, and the striker himself had an injury in the 1/8th final. We think that Equatorial Guinea will be able to put up some serious resistance in this battle. An attractive bet would be a total of less than 2 goals.
