Senegal v Tunisia Betting Tips & Predictions
We’re down to the last four of the Africa Cup of Nations, with Senegal having started the tournament as one of the favourites and the Lions of Teranga are in good nick as they prepare for this clash at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo.
Aliou Cisse’s team were slightly unlucky not to make further progress in the 2018 World Cup although they have produced a series of workmanlike performances to reach the semi-final stage of the competition.
Senegal overcame Uganda by a 1-0 scoreline and then did the same against Benin at the quarter final stage, with Idrissa Gueye finding a breakthrough with twenty minutes left on the clock after the Squirrels had managed to hold firm for the majority of the contest.
One hallmark about the Senegalese performances is that they have been defensively stout and they have conceded just one goal throughout AFCON 2019, with Tunisia arriving at this game after a relatively comfortable victory in their quarter final encounter.
The Eagles of Carthage executed a perfect game plan to overcome surprise package Madagascar, with three second-half goals putting paid to the fairytale and it should be noted that the Tunisians also beat Ghana in the previous round of the competition.
Previously to this, Alain Giresse’s team had drawn their three group games to reach the knockout stage of the competition and they will certainly feel confident that they can overcome Senegal.
Sadio Mane is clearly the big danger man for the favourites although Tunisia managed to nullify Ghana for nearly ninety minutes two games ago and this is now the stage of the competition where there will be plenty of nerves on display.
There have been four knockout matches that have already gone to a penalty shoot-out and this trend might be set to continue for this clash.
