Senegal should have too much quality for Congo in the 2021 AFCON qualifier at the Stade Lat Dior. The Senegalese are coming off a fine showing at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt and have the in-form Sadio Mane in their ranks.

Senegal Form


Senegal played out a 1-1 draw against five-time world champions Brazil in an international friendly back in October. They fell behind early in the contest but struck back on the stroke of half time through Famara Diedhiou’s penalty. 

The Teranga Lions are Africa's top ranked team and reached the final of this year’s AFCON in Egypt. Aliou Cisse’s men often breeze through the qualifiers, claiming 13 wins and a draw from their last 14 qualifying matches.

Senegal News


Sadio Mane has been in excellent form for Premier League club Liverpool this season and is expected to lead the Senegal from the front. He is likely to be joined in attack by M’Baye Niang while Famara Diedhiou is also in contention to feature after scoring in his last international appearance.

Congo Form


Congo are coming off a 1-0 home victory over Equatorial Guinea in the African Nations Championship qualifier in October. Carof Bakoua's 74th minute effort proved to be the difference as they held on for the win.

The victory ended a five-match winless run for the Congolese who missed this summer’s AFCON in Egypt. Valdo Filho's men have a poor record in AFCON qualifiers with just two wins in their last 10 matches and also losing their last four away from home.

Congo News


Yeni Metalyaspor forward Thievy Bifouma makes a return to the team after missing the October games. He is set to start and spearhead an attack that should have Junior Makiese and Silvere Ganvoula. 

Senegal vs Congo Head to Head


Senegal are unbeaten in this fixture with two wins and a draw from three matches against Congo. The most recent meeting was a 2-0 victory for the West Africans in a friendly back in 2017.

Senegal vs Congo Betting Odds

Senegal vs Congo Match Up


Senegal have numerous attacking options with M’Baye Niang, Famara Diedhiou and Ismaila Sarr all impressing. Sadio Mane remains the go-to-man for the team with three goals in his last five matches for Liverpool and five in his last 10 international appearances.

The West Africans are also solid at the back having kept clean sheets in their last five matches in AFCON qualifiers. Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly is set to hold things together in central defence where Senegal will be confident of shutting out the likes of Thievy Bifouma and Junior Makiese.
