Senegal vs Benin Match Preview

Senegal have become understandable favourites for the Africa Cup of Nations with Egypt out of the running, and are expected to reach the semi-finals by beating outsiders Benin.

With a solid defence and Sadio Mane up front, Senegal look to have every chance of becoming African champions for the first time – their only previous appearance in the final came in 2002 when they lost to Cameroon.

From last October onwards, the only times in 10 fixtures that Senegal failed to win to nil were in a 2-1 friendly success against Mali and a 1-0 defeat to Algeria in the group stage of this competition – and they may get a chance of revenge in the final on July 19.

Liverpool forward Mane has, unsurprisingly, been the main source of goals for the Lions of Teranga at this tournament, but they have also impressed at the back where Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has shown why he is so highly rated.

Benin reached the knockout stage despite finishing only third in their group and then pulled off an upset by ousting Morocco on penalties, which means they are through to the last eight even though they have drawn all of their four matches!

Although Portugal rode their luck in similar fashion at Euro 2016, surely Benin’s charmed run has to end sooner rather than later and Senegal appear to have the quality to ensure they go no further.
