Senegal come into this Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-final clash having lost just one of their last ten competitive games (W8, D1, L1), while scoring at least twice on five occasions. Overall, the ‘Lions of Teranga’ are in great defensive form, registering a clean sheet in each of those eight wins across that period.
Conceding an average of just 0.3 goals per fixture across that run, 2002 AFCON runners-up Senegal have, however, failed to score in each of their last three AFCON tournament losses.
Tunisia have now registered a first-half clean sheet in each of their last ten outings, and are currently enjoying an eight-game unbeaten run, which has seen them secure a goalless half-time result in their last four matches. This is their sixth AFCON semi-final (W3, L2), however they are winless in each of their last two AFCON tournament meetings versus Senegal (D1, L1), while conceding exactly twice on both occasions.
With a recent penchant for stalemates, Tunisia have seen four of their last five AFCON tournament games end as a draw within 90 minutes. One positive omen, however, is that the ‘Eagles of Carthage’ have won ‘to nil’ in three of the last six competitive H2Hs.
Players to watch: Despite two missed penalties, Sadio Mané has been the standout performer for Senegal so far, with three goals and an assist to his name. Meanwhile, Youssef Msakni has two goals for Tunisia in this tournament so far.
Stat attack: There have been three penalties, and two red cards shown, across Senegal’s previous three matches.
Senegal have kept a clean sheet in each of their last five AFCON tournament victories.
Tunisia have conceded each of their last five AFCON tournament goals in the last 30 minutes.
