The Senegal vs. Algeria match will be played on Friday, July 19, at the Cairo International Stadium, Cairo. This is the Africa Cup of Nations final. In the semifinal stage, Senegal defeated Tunisia by 1:0 after extra time, while Algeria defeated Nigeria by 2:1.
It is interesting that these teams played only ten matches against each other so far. Algeria recorded five wins, Senegal had three victories while two matches ended in a draw. Algeria recorded four wins and one draw in their last five matches against Senegal. In three out of their last four meetings we saw under 2.5 goals.
Senegal is hunting their first Africa Cup of Nations trophy and they will have to beat the winners from 1990 in order to get it. One of the biggest stars of the tournament, Sadio Mane, missed two penalties during this competition, but he is still the man to watch and somebody who can bring Senegal the glory. He scored three goals so far.
