Kenya vs Senegal
Africa Cup of Nations
Date: Monday, 1st July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: 30 June- Air Defence Stadium (Cairo).
Kenya come into this game knowing that even if they lose they have been assured of 3rd place but if any other team get more than 3 points in the other groups then it won’t matter so they will have to try and pick up something in this match.
They started their cup campaign by losing to Algeria 2-0 which was expected but they followed this defeat up with a thrilling 3-2 win over Tanzania to give themselves a chance. Critics will point out that Tanzania are by far the worst nation footballing wise in the group, and this Kenya team will struggle to get wins against quality teams as shown in the game v Algeria.
Senegal easily brushed aside Tanzania 2-0 in their opening game and then lost 1-0 to group favourites Algeria in the next match. Senegal have a lot of quality about them and they are sure to start off as favourites to win this game. If Senegal do win that will assure them to qualify for the next round along with Algeria. In those terms this match feels like a straight knock out game then, and whoever loses will probably go out of the competition.
Kenya vs Senegal: Head to Head
The nations have only played one match before which was as far back as 2004 when Senegal beat Kenya 3-0.
Kenya vs Senegal: Prediction
Senegal as expected are the ‘odds-on favourite’ at around 2/5 (1.44) and it would be a surprise to see another outcome here. They just possess more quality all over the pitch.
For a better value price, we will back Senegal to win but at half time. This is a huge match for both sides and we should see the qualities and attacking pace of Senegal fair better when the game kicks off, they will have to bring their business minds to this game and start sharply.
To sum up, Senegal really should have few problems in this game.
