Tip Senegal - Guinea
Prediction published on January 11, 2022 at 7:29 PM - Modified on January 11, 2022 at 8:30 PM
Senegal were lucky to beat a resolute Zimbabwe in their opening game of Group B at the 2021 AFCON finals but the best ranked nation in Africa didn’t play well. They have another chance, when they take on Guinea in the second game. Both the two nations have three points after slim wins in their opening games. Sadio Mane scored a penalty in the 90th minute to see Senegal collect three points against Zimbabwe, a result that in reality was very unfair for the Zimbabweans. For the better part of the game, Senegal struggled and will definitely want to address that coming into this game. A number of their key players should return for this game after missing the win over Zimbabwe and we should expect a much more solid Senegal side.
Guinea were also not very comfortable in their game against Malawi and should be thankful for a wasteful Malawi frontline. Guinea showed glaring weaknesses and on numerous occasions were caught out but survived. With the lethal attack that Senegal has, this will be severely punished. It is also not like Guinea are the best attacking side; in their last five matches, they have failed to score in three games, and the only time they’ve scored more than one was in a 2-0 friendly win against Rwanda. At the AFCON finals, Guinea have just two wins in the last 10 games and they have just two clean sheets in 17 matches at the competition.
Key points Senegal - Guinea
Senegal have six wins in the last seven matches.
Senegal have no loss in their last 13 competitive games.
Guinea have two wins in their last 10 AFCON matches.
Senegal have five wins in their last six AFCON matches.
Guinea have failed to score in three of their last five matches.
Conclusion Senegal - Guinea
Senegal are clearly the favorites here; they have a much better run and they’ve posted better results at AFCON finals. Though they struggled against Zimbabwe, the caliber of players they have should improve them in the next game. Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly are expected back in the next game so we should see a more solid performance and we are backing Senegal to win.
