senegal vs algeria Tip Reason:

Two of the main contenders for glory in Egypt this summer go head to head on Thursday. Both Senegal and Algeria went into the Africa Cup of Nations expecting big things from their talented squads. They each delivered in the opening weekend, as they both claimed victories to make a fine start to the group. However, which of these two sides will end up topping Group C? This showdown in Cairo will decide who will top the pile, while one of these two can book a last 16 place. Senegal were able to see off Tanzania on Sunday, a victory which followed up on their pre-tournament hype. They’ve got a brilliant squad, which has sent them into this tournament as Africa’s highest ranked team. They are aiming to finally land this trophy, while they’ve had few better chances to go all the way than this year. They’re led by Sadio Mane up front, who is looking to build on Champions League success with a victory in Egypt. Algeria are carrying an impressive squad with them into the Nations Cup, but will that be enough? They are hoping that this group will get them over the line as they look to become champions of Africa. They started by beating Kenya 1-0 in their last game, which wasn’t a ringing endorsement for the Greens. They’ve won this competition on only one occasion – back in 1990. Since they’ve been underwhelming through most years, while the class of 2019 could easily go down the same route here. While Algeria have some top talents from the European game, Senegal’s squad comes almost exclusively from the continent. They have one of the game’s highest-rated defenders in Kalidou Koulibaly, Mane’s pace going forward and they can call on the likes of Keita Balde, M’Baye Niang and Idrissa Gueye. They’ve got a great defensive structure including screens in front of the back four, while they’ve got an attack which helps them shade games. All of that has sent Senegal into this tournament on the back of a fine run. They’ve won their last seven matches, qualifying for the tournament with 16 points from a possible 18. They’ve scored twice in four of their last five Africa Cup of Nations games, while they are meeting an Algeria side who have conceded at least twice in four of their last five at this tournament. That has us backing a talented Senegal side to win and maintain their unbeaten run.
