Game Preview

Guinea and Senegal are set to face off at the Stade de Yamoussoukro on January 23, for a Group C match of the Africa Cup of Nations.


Senegal’s exciting 3-1 triumph against Cameroon in their 2nd group match guaranteed them a spot in the AFCON 2023 knockout stages. Habib Diallo’s emphatic finish and Ismaila Sarr’s deflected shot put the defending African champions in a commanding position. But with 7 minutes of extra time remaining, Jean-Charles Castelletto’s score for the Indomitable Lions put Senegal under tremendous pressure. Aliou Cisse’s team took 6 points from 2 games and qualified for the round of sixteen, but just when it looked like Cameroon might steal a point, Sadio Mane struck in the 95th minute to bag his 1st goal of the competition and secure the win. With 3 goals apiece in their first 2 matches, they possess the greatest attacking record in the competition’s group stage. It’s interesting to note that they had 3 goals in 4 of their previous 5 AFCON outings, and they intend to continue this trend.



For Guinea, nevertheless, relaxation is not a possibility heading into this match, as it is an important struggle for qualification. With a goal in the 69th minute from Aguibou Camara to win the 1-0 win versus Gambia, Kaba Diawara’s team is now in the lead. Guinea is in control of their own destiny heading into the final group match, having taken 4 points from 2 matches. The Guineans only need one point to guarantee themselves a top-two ranking and a position in the knockout stages. If they lose, though, they would have to hope that Cameroon loses to Gambia or that they have a better goal differential if both teams end with four points. They have preserved 2 clean sheets and struggled to find the back of the goal twice.
