Burkina Faso faces Senegal in Douala in the first 1/2-finals game from the Africa Cup of Nations. Let’s preview this exciting match in these best football tips for today, are you ready?
Burkina Faso finised third in the competition in 2017, but this time they are motivated to reach the final for a first time in their history so far. The Stallions are making a solid competition and reaching the 1/2-finals is a terrific achievement for them. Kamou Malo’s team is doing some good things on the pitch.
In the 1/4-finals the Stallions had a tough job against Tunisia, but successfully did the job after a 1-0 win in Garoua. Lorient’s Dango Ouattara became the hero as he scored the winning goal in the injury time of the first half. The bad news is Ouattara got sent off in the second half so he’s missing the next game.
Just like Burkina Faso, Senegal are trying to win the Africa Cup of Nations for a first time so far. In the 1/4-finals the Lions of Teranga didn’t leave any doubts they are superior to Equatorial Guinea as they won the game with 3-1. Famara Diedhiou, Cheikhou Kouyate and Ismaila Sarr scored the goals for Aliou Cisse’s team. The super star Sadio Mane assisted for the first goal and once again proved to be very important to his team.
Senegal’s defense is doing an impressive job so far in the competition. The Lions of Teranga have conceded just one goal in five matches played – the one against Equatorial Guinea in the previous game. This could lead them to the trophy if they keep performing like this at the back.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Africa Cup of Nations 1/2-finals game between Burkina Faso and Senegal. One of these two teams will reach the final, but which one?
