Senegal vs Tunisia Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds

Tunisia finally recorded their first win in regulation as they secured a comfortable 3-0 victory over Madagascar in the quarter-finals, but they are facing tougher rivals on Sunday and are slight underdogs in this one. On the other hand, Senegal booked a narrow 1-0 win over Benin in the previous game, and are hoping to continue with excellent defensive displays after not conceding in the last three matches.

Senegal Team News and Latest Form

senegalSenegal come into this Africa Cup of Nations 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. Despite two missed penalties, Sadio Mané has been the standout performer for Senegal so far, with three goals and an assist to his name.

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 Team News and Latest Form

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 previous 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.

Youssef Msakni has two goals for Tunisia in this tournament so far. Tunisia have conceded each of their last five AFCON tournament goals in the last 30 minutes.

Senegal vs Tunisia Head to Head

Senegal and Tunisia have met on nine occasions before, and the Eagles of Carthage are leading the all-time H2H encounters with four victories while Senegal have just one. That lone win came in 2017 AFCON when Sadio Mane and Kara Mbodji scored for the Lions of Teranga to secure a 2-0 victory. It’s worth of noting that none of the previous five H2H duels produced goals on both sides.
