Senegal vs Guinea Predictions


Senegal made hard work of beating Zimbabwe in their opening game. Guinea also needed a single goal to get the better of Malawi.  

With this game effectively becoming a Group B decider, I'm backing this one to be tight and end in a draw with Guinea no pushovers.

  • Senegal are undefeated in their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Senegal have won 9 of their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Guinea are have won 2 of their last 3 matches against Senegal (Africa Cup of Nations).
  • Guinea have won their last 2 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Senegal lead the head to head 8-3 with one draw since 1994. Two of Guinea's wins came in the last three matches.

Senegal Form


Two-time AFCON runners-up Senegal made a winning start to this year's tournament, but it was hard work to overcome Zimbabwe 1-0.

Missing a number of players due to COVID, they lacked a cutting edge and needed a 97th minute penalty from Saido Mane to break the deadlock.

Guinea Form


Guinea made a winning start to their campaign with a 1-0 win over Malawi in the opening game thanks to defender Issiaga Sylla's first-half goal.

Verdict

Both sides recorded narrow wins in their opening games despite being hit by Covid in the camp. In a game that could decide the winner of the group, I'm backing a cagey affair and a draw.
