Senegal vs Benin Betting Odds and Advice
The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations match between Senegal and Benin at the 30 June Stadium should be one-way traffic. The Lions of Teranga have won nine of their last 10 matches and are tipped to win to nil here at 1.90 via Hollywoodbets.
Senegal Results & Team News
Senegal have won nine of their last 10 matches with the only exception being an unfortunate 1-0 blip against Algeria. The Lions of Teranga started their tournament with a 2-0 win over Tanzania prior to the Algeria defeat and bounced back with a 3-0 win over Kenya.
Aliou Cissé’s team followed up with a 1-0 win over Uganda to make the quarter-finals, and as great teams do, expect them to grow in strength as the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations progresses.
Africa’s top-ranked side showed at the FIFA World Cup that they are a team that can stand up to anybody on their day and can be expected to show their strength once more. Sadio Mané will no longer take penalties after two failures in a row but there is no shortage of capable heads in this side, coached by their former captain.
Benin Results & Team News
Benin have rode their luck to get the quarter-finals although they undoubtedly deserve praise for an incredible run. A fortunate 2-2 draw with Ghana was followed up by further stalemates with struggling Guinea-Bissau and Cameroon.
The Squirrels’ finest hour came in the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 last 16 against Morocco, when they progressed on penalties following a 1-1 draw. Hakim Ziyech let them off the hook, though, failing to net a late penalty which could have won the game for the Atlas Lions.
Steve Mounié returns for the Squirrels having been suspended for their last game, but Khaled Adénon is suspended after his red card against Morocco.
Senegal vs Benin Key Players
Senegal’s Sadio Mané is the obvious key man on attack having scored three goals at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations despite being suspended for the opener against Tanzania. He shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang prior to this tournament.
Kalidou Koulibaly has been a rock in defence although Benin have their own key man to draw influence from in Stéphane Sessègnon. He is a key creative influence as well as a Squirrels stalwart.
Senegal vs Benin Key Facts
- Senegal have won 9 of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
- Benin have never won an Africa Cup of Nations match in 13 attempts.
- Senegal are Africa’s top-ranked team in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings.
Our betting advice
Senegal are a safe bet for this one. They appear to be growing in confidence while also learning from their mistakes. Aliou Cissé’s men have only conceded one goal in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and have won nine of their last 10 matches, meaning they are tipped to win to nil at 1.90.
