Uganda vs Senegal Match Preview
Uganda are a quietly improving team who have already ended DR Congo’s chances at the Africa Cup of Nations, and could be capable of giving Senegal quite a test in the round of 16.
Victory against the Ivory Coast in a warm-up friendly match hinted Uganda ought to be respected in Egypt and they have duly delivered, with a 2-0 opening success against DR Congo ultimately proving vital as they qualified from their group.
Now the team nicknamed the Cranes take on title hopefuls Senegal who, like Uganda, finished second in their pool because they lost 1-0 to fellow qualifiers Algeria.
That result suggested the Lions of Teranga could be vulnerable to supposedly lesser teams, albeit they had no problems comfortably winning their other matches to nil against Kenya and Tanzania.
For Uganda, there was no disgrace in being beaten by a Mo Salah-inspired Egypt team in front of a home crowd totalling almost 75,000 and Sebastien Desabre’s side are generally very strong defensively, with nine clean sheets in their 13 matches since September.
They will do well to keep out Sadio Mane and Co and we do not necessarily see them ultimately causing an upset, but backing Uganda to take the tie to extra time appeals as a good-value bet.
