Senegal vs Algeria Match Preview
Senegal have shown off as a tough defensive side like we had expected them to and they’ve kept five clean sheets in six Africa Cup of Nations outings, led by Kalidou Koulibaly at the back and narrowly turning knockout clashes their way with just three goals scored along the way.
However, only goal Lions of Teranga conceded came in a loss to Algeria (0-1) in Group C and they now meet the rivals in the Final, hoping to take revenge at the most important of times. They’ve edged past Tunisia (1-0) in extra-time only and Aliou Cisse will still want more from his fatigued men.
The stakes are high and motivation will not be lacking but Algeria have proven themselves a very tough nut themselves, seeing nothing but wins in Egypt and extending a seven-match winning streak since mid-June. They took it very late as they beat Ivory Coast (on penalties after a 1-1 draw) and Nigeria (2-1 as Mahrez netter a last gasp winner), though.
Desert Foxes have thus conceded goals in both of these last two outings, which could be more worrying ahead of the contest – promising a narrow occasion with high stakes at Cairo International Stadium. They could be in a better place, though, and feel less pressure to perform on the day.
We will thus stick our necks out for Algeria to beat the tough rivals once again and lift the Trophy with a win priced at 19/10 with Netbet, which does feel like more than just a lively longshot at this point with their great character shown in Egypt.
However, we expect Senegal to restrict the contest to very few chances and this should prove another low-scoring contest in the making, as we now also go for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 4/9 with Surebet247 – which looks like buying money for old rope.
