Senegal vs Benin Prediction & Match Preview

Senegal vs Benin
Africa Cup of Nations
Date: Wednesday, 10th July 2019
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: 30 June Stadium (Cairo).

It’s the quarter finals of the Africa Cup of Nations and in this match up Senegal are going to be the big favourites to advance to the semi-final stage.

Senegal got here after coming 2nd in their group where they only lost to Algeria with that game finishing 1-0. In the round of 16 Senegal overcame Uganda in a very tight game that ended in a 1-0 result. Senegal will be fully committed in this game to get the last four of the competition.

Benin only qualified as one of the best third ranked teams and even then, they were only 3rd in that table. But it was enough for them to make the knockout stages.

In the round of 16 they came up against Morocco and they were expected to lose this encounter. The match actually finished 1-1 and Benin held on after extra time and then converted all of their penalties to go through in what was an historic victory for the nation.

Senegal vs Benin: Prediction

It would be a big shock to see Benin beat Senegal but then again that is what a lot of people thought when they beat Morocco. The feeling is that Benin have had their joy and luck and now it could run out. We can’t ignore the odds here and Benin are 9.00 to win this game with Senegal at 1.50.

Senegal have not lit up this competition so for us to back them would make little sense and because both teams like to defend, we don’t expect to see many goals and this is the market we will closely follow here.
