Senegal vs Tanzania Match Preview
Senegal will enter the tournament in good spirits having won each of their last six matches and suffering defeat in just one of their last 11. The market likes their chances of success and has them as second favourites behind hosts Egypt.
The Lions are coached by former player Aliou Cisse who has been in charge of the national side since 2015. Their star player is undoubtedly Saido Mane of Liverpool while Idrissa Gueye and Kalidou Koulibaly help shore up the midfield and defence.
Tanzania are expected to struggle in Group C and bookmakers have the biggest price of any side to win their group. They are entering in poor form having won none of their last two and just two of their previous seven.
Taifa Stars are coached by Nigerian Emmanuel Amunike who has been in their dugout since taking over in November 2018. The squad has few household names with Genk striker Mbwana Samatta and Farid Mussa of Tenerife the two to watch.
Five of the last six victories for Senegal have come to nil while Tanzania have blanked in two of their last four so backing the Lions to win to nil looks the call. We think the Taifa Stars could struggle from the off so Senegal HT/Senegal FT also appeals.
