And in the end, it came down to Senegal and Algeria to decide which team will win the AFCON trophy. The two sides from Group C proved to be the strongest at this fantastic tournament. Both nations are craving for the title, and there is no doubt that we are ahead of one incredible game. According to the bookmakers, there isn’t a favourite in this clash. The odds are similar for both sides, and that only makes the entire event even more tempting.

Senegal is in euphoria. The Lions are in the finals and have a chance to do something never seen before – to win the AFCON. They are one of the toughest teams in this tournament, with all but one of their matches ending with under 2.5 goals. Also, in all of their six games here in Egypt, both teams haven’t scored. Their semi-final match was breath-taking. At first, Tunisia missed the penalty and a chance to open the doors to the finals. Afterwards, Senegal did the same thing, but they advanced to the finals after extra times and an own goal of one of Tunisia’s players. During this tournament, four of six Lions’ games saw one or no goals at all, and that tells you a lot about their style of play. Overall, they won five out of six contests here at AFCON. That sole defeat came against Algeria during the group stage.

The Desert Warriors are the only undefeated team at Africa Cup of Nations. We need to say that so far this team dominated in almost every game, looking very serious and hungry. Algeria is a strong, robust, and very physical team, which sometimes goes beyond the boundaries of allowed when it comes to fouls. That was the case against Senegal in the group stage when they had 34 fouls during the match. However, this doesn’t mean that Algeria isn’t good in other areas. For example, their attack is one of the best here, scoring two or more goals in four out of six games at AFCON. Also, the Desert Warriors are a mentally very strong team, who showcased that against Ivory Coast in the quarterfinals, and Nigeria during the semis. Both matches ended in a thrilling manner. One interesting fact, Algeria is undefeated in the last 13 games.

Team News

Both sides are fully prepared for the upcoming finale.


We would go with the efficiency here, rather than picking the winner of this match. The situation is very complicated regarding the final outcome, and that is why our focus moves to other areas. As you all saw from the preview, these two teams have excellent defences, which allowed three goals combined throughout this tournament. Senegal allowed one against Algeria, while Desert Warriors did the same against Ivory Coast and Nigeria. Because of that, under 2.5 goals is the first choice for Friday’s finals. Odds at Ladbrokes for our suggestion are at 2/5.

The second tip is even safer in our opinion, and that is a draw at the halftime. These types of games often start cautiously, with both sides trying to protect their own goal and attacking afterwards. How many times at this tournament have we seen the first 45 minutes without any notable opportunities, and from our perspective, it will happen again. If there is a possibility to bet on the correct score of the first halftime pick, 0:0, but to lower the risk, a draw seems just fine. Bet365 is offering solid profits here, with the odds sitting at 5/6.
