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.
