Last year's Africa Cup of Nations runner-up will host Congo this Wednesday at Stade lat Dior, for the qualifying stage of the 2021 edition. Both teams are in Group I along with Eswatini and Guinea-Bissau.
Sadio Mane leads a team that managed to get into last year's Africa Cupf of Nations Final. The team made a sensational campaign in the competitions but failed to secured the title against Algeria. Senegal never lost against Congo, counting 3 wins and 2 draws in 5 meetings in team's history. Senegal are huge favorites for this clash, as the team kept 4 clean sheets in their last 4 meetings against Congo, and comes from 6 wins in their last 8 games.
Gomis; Gassama, Sane, Koulibaly, Coly; Kouyate, Diatta, Gueye; Sarr, Mane, Diedhiou
Congo was absent in the last two editions of the Africa Cup of Nations (2017, 2019), so the team will fight hardly for the qualification in a Group I were there's 3 teams competing for a qualifying spot, assuming that Senegal will easily guarantee their ticket to next year. Congo finished on the bottom of their qualifying group for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, winning just one of the 6 matches played. The team lost each of their last 4 away matches in AFCON's qualifying stage, and tomorrow they'll face another tough test against one of the most powerful teams in Africa.
Ngobo; Etou, Mayembo, Baudry, Konongo; N'Dinga, Oniangue, Loussoukou; Ndockyt, Makiesse, Ibara Doniama
We predict an easy win for Senegal in front of their crowd, against a weaker team that usually doesn't get good results away from home.
