Senegal vs Equatorial Guinea: Senegal will be up against Equatorial Guinea in the Quarter-Final of the Africa Cup of Nations AFCON 2021 on Monday, 31st January 2022 at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium, Youande.
Senegal’s most outstanding performance at the Africa Cup of Nations came in the round of 16 against Cape Verde, where they won 2-0. Sadio Mane’s head injury probably has ruled him out for this clash, but Ismaila Sarr’s comeback is a positive. Senegal are on a 10-game undefeated streak in all competitions and will be looking to keep that momentum going.
Meanwhile, Equatorial Guinea made their way into the quarter-finals after a win in penalties over Mali in the Round of 16. They have been one of the underdogs in the AFCON, having advanced to the final eight after producing a few shocks during the competition to finish second in Group E with six points from three games. Equatorial Guinea have lost just one of their last nine games and will be confident coming into this fixture.
