Senegal vs Benin (By: Birdman)

Senegal take on Benin in the first game of the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 quarter-final. They finished second on their group stage after 2 wins against Kenya by 3-0, Tanzania by 2-0 and 1 defeat against Algeria by 1-0. After that, Senegal have won Uganda by 1-0 in the round of sixteen with Sadio Mane's 15th minute goal. They have scored at least 1 goal in 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

For team news, Senegal manager Aliou Cissé could start the same team for the third straight game on Wednesday.

On the other side, Benin have finished the best 3rd in their group stage with 3 points after 3 draws against Ghana, Guinea-Bissau and Cameroon. After that, they surprised Morocco after a 4-1 penalty win after the extra time: In this game, They registered 33% of ball possession and just 5 goal attempts (with 2 shots on goal) and Morocco 19 goal attempts (8 shots on goal).

For team news, Benin will be without the key defender Khaled Adenon for this clash after the red card collected in the first half of extra-time against Morocco.

Senegal have one of the best attack in this Africa Cup of Nations with M'Baye Niang, Ismaila Sarr, Henri Saivet and Sadio Mané leading the attack and with the absence of the key defender Khaled Adenon for Benin I think they should score at least 2 goals.
