Match Preview & Team News
The stage is set for the huge African Cup of Nations final as Senegal and Algeria are set to battle it out for the precious trophy on Friday evening at the Cairo International Stadium. Some of the biggest Premier League stars Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez will be on opposite sides once again. Mahrez was more successful in the previous season of the Premier League as his Manchester City won the title topping the standings by just one point ahead of Mane’s Liverpool.
These two likes have guided their respective national sides towards this final in Egypt as well. They notched three goals apiece. Who of them will prevail on Friday night? Mane has not been on the scoreline in any of last two games which is why the Lions of Teranga struggled to go past the likes of Benin (1-0) and Tunisia (1-0 after extra-time) in last two rounds.
Senegal’s head coach Aliou Cisse will thus rather rely on his side’s rock-solid defense which has allowed just one goal ever since the start of the competition. That lone goal, however, came in the second round of the group phase just against Algeria when left-winger Youcef Belaili made the difference four minutes after the interval.
The Desert Foxes have no doubts been more impressive en route to the final. They won all six matches so far in the competition if we count the victory on penalties in the quarter-final tie against Ivory Coast. Much like their counterparts, Djamel Belmadi’s men have been very tough to break down so far in the competition. They shipped just two goals, one of which came in the 2-1 semi-final win over Nigeria.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It will be very hard to separate the two sides on Friday evening. The draw is thus the most likable of three outcomes and we will back it at the odds of 2/1.
Goals Market Prediction
You just can’t make a mistake backing a low-scoring contest here. The Under 1.5 goals FT pick is paid at 5/4 odds.
