The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hasn’t produced a plethora of goals overall, though we can expect at least one here, as Senegal have never produced three consecutive goalless draws in their 62-year history. While Senegal were pre-tournament favorites, the 2019 runners up have made it to the knockout stages of this edition mainly via their rock-solid defense.
Senegal are the highest ranked African nation by FIFA (#20) and they will be hoping to show exactly why by eliminating Cape Verde in this clash, which would extend their unbeaten run to 15 games (90 minutes only: W9, D5).
Encouragingly for the ‘Sharks’, they have lost just four of their 17 internationals played since the beginning of 2020 (W8, D5), and that run includes positive results against the likes of Nigeria and Cameroon. However, their only defeat by more than a single-goal margin during that run was against Senegal.
However, the Sharks have never made it past the first knockout stage of an AFCON tournament and their last such appearance ended in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana, the same scoreline in which they lost to Senegal in three of their last four meetings.
