Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Senegal will be looking to cement top position in Group I when they take on Guinea Bissau in the AFCON qualifier on Wednesday afternoon. The Lions of Teranga have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in African football, but they can’t afford any complacency in the qualifiers against Guinea Bissau. The great news for the hosts is that Liverpool ace Sadio Mane is back after missing the Morocco friendly due to coronavirus infection.
Diao Balde Keita returns to contention as well, with Reims Boulaye Dia receiving a call-up thanks to his brilliant displays in the Ligue 1. Guinea Bissau kicked off their qualifying campaign with a routine 3-0 win over Eswatini, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Congo. The Djurtus face yet another uphill task in Wednesday’s clash, and seeing that Mane is back for the Lions of Teranga, home win should be considered.
