AFCON

Watch Guinea vs Senegal Live

There will be much excitement in the Stade Charles Konan Banny de Yamoussoukro when Guinea and Senegal square off in a pivotal Group C match at the Africa Cup of Nations.

While the Teranga Lions, who have already guaranteed their spot in the round of 16, must avoid loss to finish first in the group, the National Elephants just need one point to finish in the top two and ensure their qualification for the knockout round.

Senegal’s exciting 3-1 victory against Cameroon in their second group match guaranteed them a spot in the AFCON 2023 knockout rounds.

Habib Diallo’s emphatic finish and Ismaila Sarr’s deflected goal placed the defending African champions in a commanding position. But with seven minutes of injury time remaining, Jean-Charles Castelletto’s goal for the Indomitable Lions put the Teranga Lions under tremendous strain.

When it looked like Cameroon may steal a point, Aliou Cisse’s team was leading six points from two games and were guaranteed a spot in the round of sixteen thanks to a goal by Sadio Mane in the 95th minute. It was Mane’s first goal of the tournament.
