Betting Tip for matchday 1 of the 2022 Kamerun Africa Cup of Nations between Senegal and Zimbabwe. The game will be played at Kouekong (Bafoussam, Cameroon) on 10.01.2022 at 14:00.

Zimbabwe on their part are in the middle of a horrendous run of form and they will be looking to stir up the hornets nest here by pulling off an unlikely upset result.

For this preview, our experts will explore 1xBet betting app and MrXbet betting options for our betting tips today.

SENEGAL

Senegal put up a strong showing at the qualifiers as they became the first team to book a ticket to this qualifiers with an unbeaten run in the campaign. They extended the run through to the COSAFA Cup but ultimately failed at the final hurdle, losing to eventual champions South Africa in post-match penalties.

Aliou Cisse’s men have shown flashes of brilliance, reminiscent of the dominant and entertaining Senegal teams he played for in the early 2000s.

The Lions of Teranga will look to send a memo to the competition in this opener. They are in great shape coming into the tournament with no major injuries to their squad.

ZIMBABWE

Zimbabwe have been on an extended dry spell of 12 games without a win coming into this game and that kind of form has their fans jittery and uncertain of what to expect from their team when the bright lights of Africa’s premier football event are switched on.

They qualified for the third successive tournament by the skins of their teeth with a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in their 6 qualifiers.

The Warriors have never made it out of the group stages previously and they will be in for a tough task in this opener against Senegal, who are one of the pre-tournament favourites.

SENEGAL VS ZIMBABWE PREDICTIONS

Senegal are one of the best teams in the tournament and they are awash with talent in the squad including some of the best players in the EPL in the shape of Mane and Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy who are both expected to start after linking up with the team. Zimbabwe have been woeful in their recent matches and we fancy Senegal to see them off without breaking a sweat. For our initial tip, we are going for Halftime/Fulltime → Senegal/Senegal @ 1.98 with MrXbet Bonus.

With Mendy in between the posts for Senegal, goals may come at a premium for the southern Africans. He has put up some outstanding goalkeeping masterpieces for Chelsea this season. Zimbabwe themselves haven’t quite been scoring much either with just 3 goals scored in their last 7 games. 1xBet have Senegal keeping a clean sheet priced at 1.61 and we are backing this to land as our final prediction for this clash.
