Senegal meets Benin in a game from the 1/4-finals of the African Cup of Nations
Senegal meets Benin in a game from the 1/4-finals of the African Cup of Nations. Stay with us, because we are going to give you our vip soccer bets for this clash.
So far the Cup of Nations campaign is going pretty well for Senegal. The Lions of Teranga only lost once in the group stage against Algeria, but they managed to win all of their other games. During the 1/8-finals Senegal faced Uganda.
It was not an easy game against Uganda, but it was successful for the Senegalian team after all. Aliou Cisse’s boys achieved a difficult 1-0 win, thanks to the winning goal of their star player Sadio Mane. The Liverpool winger put the ball in the net after 15 minutes of playing, using a good assist from Mbaye Niang.
Some people might say that this wasn’t Senegal’s most impressive performance, but they did what it was most important – progress towards the next round.
Meanwhile Benin are surprising a lot of people so far. They are usually not among the strongest teams on the continent, but now they reached the last 8, which is a very good performance.
In the group stage Benin did three draws, but for them it was enough to reach the knockout phase. During the 1/8-finals they made a fourth consecutive draw. This time Benin made a 1-1 draw with the big favourite Morocco, before eliminating them via penalty kicks. It was a huge surprise, because Benin were the underdogs in this match. Moise Adilehou scored for Benin, while Youssef En-Nesyri’s goal for the Atlas Lions was not enough for them.
Can Benin cause another big upset in the tournament? Right again, they are the underdogs against Senegal, but clearly they enjoy being in this role. Let’s see how they will do. We wish you good luck in our vip soccer bets for today.
