Team News & Match Tips:
- Senegal is ranked 22nd by FIFA while Algeria is ranked 68th in the world.
- Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has been ruled out of the tournament after fracturing his hand.
- The biggest team news is that Senegal center-back Kalidou Koulibaly is suspended for this match.
- Algeria right-back Atal is out of the tournament with a fractured shoulder bone.
- Senegal have been very strong defensively in this tournament. Algeria have been better attacking wise.
- There are no major injury doubts for both sides.
- Sadio Mane has missed 2 penalties in this tournament already. He declared that he will not take penalties for Senegal for the rest of the AFCON. Here is the link.
- A lot of players such as Ismaila Sarr, Keita Balde, Adam Ounas, Yacine Brahimi and Islam Slimani can change the match from the bench.
- There is no clear favourite to win this match. I am slightly (very slightly) leaning towards Senegal.
- There will be a lot of Algerian fans in the crowd. That may have a bearing on the match.
- Earlier in this tournament, Algeria defeated Senegal 1-0 in the group stage with Belaili scoring the winner.
- My Prediction: Algeria 1-1 Senegal.
Algeria: Mahrez, Belaili, Feghouli, Bennacer
Senegal: Mane, Sarr, Keita, Koulibaly, Niang
- Sadio Mane/Riyad Mahrez
Best Dream11 Combination 1 (Medium Risk)(Updated):
- Try and fit Feghouli in your team. He is an important player for Algeria.
- You may pick Gana Gueye or Feghouli in place of Sarr.
- You may pick Bennacer or Feghouli in place of Belaili.
- You may make a team with a clean sheet for either Senegal or Algeria.
- Captaincy and vice-captaincy according to the table above.
