Senegal vs Benin (By: PlayMaker)
Not an overrated team at the CAN Cup this year, but Benin's journey at this year's tournament is impressive. Although Benin only managed to win tickets to the knockout stagesthrough the narrow door as one of the best ranked third teams after winning 3 draws after 3 matches.
The real shock that Benin created was in the eighth round, they played stubbornly against Morocco, one of the huge candidates for the championship, dragged their opponents to the penalty shootout and finally finish them off to get tickets to the quarterfinals. Obviously, Benin can go deep in this year's tournament without luck. If there is no resilience and determination, this team will not be able to come here today. Predicting that with their sublimation, Benin will be able to cause many difficulties for Senegal in the match tonight.
Senegal's path to the quarterfinals is not too difficult. They won two-thirds games of the group stage, then beat Uganda in the eighth round with a score of 1-0 to win the quarter-finals. With a high quality squad consisting of many stars playing in the top European championships, Senegal is highly regarded for their ability to cross Benin to go further into the semi final.
Of course, the Moroccan lesson is still there but surely Sadio Mane and his comrades have well prepared for this clash, so there will be no surprises. In the past, Senegal surpassed Benin when they was undefeated for five times the two teams met, including 2 draws and 3 victories. At this reunion, if they keep playing in style and don't make mistakes, Senegal will get the ticket as planned, while Benin will have to say goodbye to their impressive tournament.
Benin's play relies heavily on counter-defense with the ability to finish their good chances. Mane's ability will be a detonator and Benin will find ways to lock him in this match. However, remember Senegal and Kouyate or Gueye can shine anytime to score. With quality attacking goods and aspiring star performers, Senegal will be able to bring the match to a high scoring goal. Moreover, it should be remembered that the two closest confrontations between Senegal and Benin have at least 3 goals scored. With all the above comments, the BTTS and over 2.5 is the right choice for this game.
