Senegal and Guinea neutralize each other

The shock of group B ultimately did not keep its promises. At the end of a very closed match, Senegal and Guinea could not decide (0-0). If the national Sily dominated a good part of the match, he did not know how to materialize. As for the Terenga Lions, they woke up too late.

Senegal or Guinea had the opportunity to take shelter by validating their ticket for the round of 16 of the CAN, Friday January 14, in Bafoussam. But the expected clash between the heavyweights of Group B gave birth to a mouse.

No observation phase, Guinea immediately takes control of the match, with several actions in the first five minutes. If the pace then drops, with a big pressing in midfield, it is always the national Sily who imposes his game in the first period.

Imperial Naby Keita

Senegal, admittedly cut off from several stars affected by Covid-19, seems completely powerless. And Sadio Mané, clearly above, cannot carry the team on his own.

It was still necessary to wait until the 31st minute to see the first strike on target: on a block from Keita, Guilavogui, served by Moriba, found himself alone in front of goal, but his crushed shot hit Dieng, the Senegalese goalkeeper.

At the break, Senegal is completely stifled by Guinea, well in place, and led by a Naby Keita of the great days, logically elected man of the match

The late awakening of the Terenga Lions

After the locker room, the match resumed on the same basis, but after 10 minutes in the second half, the Terenga Lions finally wake up! They get several set pieces and regain their bite, while the Guineans seem to be paying for their efforts. After several more or less dangerous actions, Senegal offers its first real: a foray by Mané into the surface, which serves Bouna Sarr, demarcated. This one hooks a defender, but his shot goes right next (61st).

This is not enough to reverse the trend, the awakening of the Lions is too late, and Guinea is holding on.

The two teams therefore separate with a goalless score, and each have 4 points in this group B.
