Senegal are going to face Tunisia in the first 1/2-final from the African Cup of Nations. One of these two teams will reach the big final for the trophy. Let’s examine this clash in our winnning soccer predictions for today.
Feeling inspired by their big star Sadio Mane, Senegal are almost flawless since the beginning of the competition. They only lost once against Algeria in the group stage, but in every other game in the tournament they recorded wins.
During the knockout phase the Lions of Teranga achieved two wins with the same result – 1-0. First they beat Uganda in the 1/8-finals, while in the 1/4-finals Senegal achieved the same win against Benin. The only goal in the game was scored in the second half, when Idrissa Gueye put the ball in the net after an assist from Sadio Mane. This was one of the moments in which Mane showed how important he is for his team.
Tunisia on the other hand are a very curious case, because they reached the final four of the competition with only one win. This win happened in the previous phase, when they enjoyed a 3-0 beating of Madagascar. Before this, Tunisia did four consecutive draws in the competition. Now they are unbeaten in five games in a row.
Against Madagascar Tunisia showed the best of their qualities. The first half of the game went without any goals being scored, but after the halftime break Tunisia dominated and scored three times. Ferjani Sassi opened the score, while Mesakni made it 2-0. The final third goal in the game was scored in the injury time of the match, when Naim Sliti put the ball in the net after an assist from Wahbi Khazri.
It shall be a fascinating game between Senegal and Tunisia on Sunday. Senegal won four of their five games so far, while Tunisia won only one of theirs, but are still unbeaten. Which one of these two teams will reach the final? We wish you good luck in our winning soccer predictions.
