Kenya v Senegal Betting Tips & Predictions
Senegal were installed as one of the African Cup of Nations favourites before the tournament began and everything began swimmingly after a 2-0 victory over Tanzania.
However, the Lions of Teranga were then beaten by Algeria and there’s a bit of pressure on their shoulders when they come into this clash against Kenya at the 30 June Stadium.
The good news for Senegal is that finishing as runner-up in Group C wouldn’t be a disaster considering they would end up facing the runner-up in Group A rather than play a section winner, while they should prove too strong for their opponents over ninety minutes.
Let’s not forget how comfortable the Senegalese players were when winning their opener and that was achieved without the suspended Sadio Mane, with the Liverpool star likely to have joy against a team who have already conceded four times in this tournament.
The Harambee Stars were beaten comfortably by Algeria before producing a stirring comeback to beat Tanzania 3-2, with Sebastien Migne’s team potentially going through with that three-point haul.
The French manager is reliant on captain Victor Wanyama to drive the team forward from midfield, with Michael Olunga the danger man in attack although he could well be thwarted by a defence marshalled by Kalidou Koulibaly and Cheikhou Kouyate.
The more we look at this match, the more we think that Senegal winning to nil looks a cracking bet considering they were defensively solid in their opener and only lost by the solitary goal against the Algerians.
Leading into this tournament, there were bloodless victories over Madagascar and Nigeria, with Aliou Cisse’s team having a strong bond and the sort of spine in the team which could still see them go a long way in this tournament.
