Guinea and Senegal will be fighting for the top spot in Group B when they go head to head in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021-22 encounter at the Kouekong Stadium on Friday.
Senegal were not convincing in their AFCON curtain raiser game, as they needed a stoppage-time penalty from talisman Sadio Mane to register a narrow 1-0 win against Zimbabwe. Although they are one of the favourites to lift the trophy this year, Aliou Cisse’s wards need a dominant display to grab Group B’s top spot.
Guinea, on the other hand, also had to dig deep to secure a narrow 1-0 triumph in their opening fixture to break down Malawi on Sunday. Issiaga Sylla once again showed no signs of slowing down as his brace 10-minutes before half-time gave them their first three points of the continental championship. Kaba Diawara’s men have an opportunity to progress into the last 16 for the second time in a row if they manage to beat Senegal here.
Both sides last met in the 2019 AFCON edition, which Guinea won 1-0. However, the two teams will be fighting for group bragging rights when they lock horns on the second matchday of the ongoing tournament.
