Three gruelling weeks of the Africa Cup of Nations have produced terrific thrills and spills and two of the last four remaining teams face off in the first of two semis as Burkina Faso and Senegal lock horns at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium on Wednesday.

Both teams have impressed in the tournament and they will both be aiming to clinch their first-ever continental title.

Our AFCON 2021 betting predictions for this first semifinal will be taken from Odibets and Frapapa.

BURKINA FASO

Burkina Faso have exceeded all expectations at this tournament. Despite losing to hosts Cameroon, they subsequently turned things around, making it to this semifinal after defeating highly fancied opponents in the knockout rounds and in so doing overcome the odds that were stuck against them.

After finishing 2nd in Group A, they overcame Gabon on post-match penalties and then went on to put up their best game yet when they stunned Tunisia 1-0 last time out thanks to Dango Ouattara’s goal literally at the stroke of halftime.

The Stallions will however be without Outtarra for this tie after he got his marching orders in that Tunisia match after picking up two yellow cards.

SENEGAL

Senegal had a relatively sluggish start to the tournament, barely eking out a win over Zimbabwe on opening day before drawing their other two group games, much to the chagrin of their expectant fans. Despite the less than stellar performances, they still topped Group B.

They seem to have upped the ante in the knockout rounds, beating Cape Verde 2-0 before running on the rampage with a dominant 3-1 win over Equitorial Guinea at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium last Sunday.

The Lions of Teranga will be looking to go one better than the last edition where they lost in the final to Algeria in Egypt and they have a star-studded team led by Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, that has all the weapons at their disposal to get the job done this time.

BURKINA FASO VS SENEGAL PREDICTIONS

Both of these teams have been in terrific form heading into this match. Burkina Faso are unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 matches across all competitions, the opening day loss to Cameroon being the only blot on this record. Senegal on their part haven’t lost any of their last 11 matches. We expect a very close opening half of the game with neither side willing to cede too much ground to the other. As such we are backing the game to be level at the break @ 1.83 with Frapapa bet as our first betting tip today.



For both of these teams, defence has been their calling card in this tournament. Senegal have only conceded one goal in their 5 matches while Burkina Faso have conceded three, one of which was an injury-time own goal against Gabon that sent that game to extra time. With the stakes as high as they are right now, we expect both teams to focus even more on that end of the pitch. Goals will therefore be hard to come by with limited opportunities either way. We are therefore backing Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.35 with Odibet as our last call here.
