Match in Focus

Senegal v Algeria

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Senegal have conceded only two goals in their last 12 matches.
Expert verdict
Senegal were edged out in a tight contest against Algeria in the group stages but the Lions of Teranga get their chance to exact their revenge and they can win when it matters most to claim their maiden Africa Cup of Nations title.They have kept clean sheets in five of their six games and, although the opposition they have faced can be questioned, it is easy to see why opposition struggle with Kalidou Koulibaly, Cheikhou Kouyate and Alfred N'Diaye in their ranks.
