Kenya vs Senegal, Monday’s match for the Africa Cup of Nations, Group C, at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo, Egypt.
Kenya against Senegal for the final match of the group stage in the Africa Cup of Nations.
After losing their second Africa Cup of Nations match, Senegal need a win against Kenya on Monday. They are face-to-face with another team in the group that they can qualify in. With three points in contention, a win for both sides takes them to the round of 16. Both sides have won victories over Tanzania so far, but both can win a victory that will give them that qualification.
Kenya won an exciting showdown with Tanzania on Thursday, which represented a dramatic departure from their usual style. Kenya came to this tournament thanks to a very defensive structure, built around Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama. They are likely to return to a more defensive approach to this clash.
Senegal has a squad capable of defying glory in Egypt this summer. However, his talented team suffered a setback in the last match. It was a game of few chances, what harmed a Senegal team that is at the top. Its obvious question comes from its mix of attack rhythm and resulting defensive vulnerabilities. However, Algeria showed how to effectively avoid these problems in their last game.
Senegal has a strong attack but does not have many options that might surprise. Given that Kenya has a strong defensive system, I believe only Senegal will have a great offensive volume in this match. Kenya lost 2-0 to Algeria on their debut and is likely to have problems at the moment.
Kenya will not have much quality in the attack and should allow Senegal to have a lot of ball possession. Despite being strong in the defensive section, Kenya has conceded 4 goals in two games and will not be able to withstand Senegal’s ability.
My bet is V2.
