senegal vs benin Tip Reason:

Senegal are aiming to continue their bright start to the Africa Cup of Nations, especially after the tournament opened up for them. Even after winning their last 16 clash with Uganda, Senegal were seen as the second-favourites for the trophy. However, a defeat for hosts Egypt later in the round has left them as the side to watch in this competition, with their impressive array of talent potentially driving them all the way to the final. Can they see off Benin and hang in the competition? Senegal have been long-fancied for success this summer, but without Egypt, they are the most appealing side left in the last eight. They went out to eventual winners Cameroon in the quarters two years ago, but Cameroon are already out of this competition too. There’s certainly an opening if Senegal can stick to their recent form, although their 1-0 loss to the competition’s new second-favourites Algeria in the group stage could be a worry for them further down the line. The tournament favourites will be coming up against tough opposition, but this doesn’t seem to be it. Benin are yet to win a game at this tournament, but they did pull a surprise with their 1-1 draw against Morocco. They edged that tie with a penalty shoot-out success, but can Benin keep running things that close? They drew all three of their group games and still qualified as one of the best third-placed sides, but those results show that they’re clearly a limited side. Benin have survived, but the two teams who finished up above them are already out. We don’t expect them to last much longer, especially as Senegal continue to target the trophy. The favourites have more than enough quality going forward to put this Benin side to the sword, while we don’t expect the underdogs to pull off another draw. Senegal have been winning too many games for us to worry about them being frustrated here. They’ve won nine of their last 10 outings, while their results in that time have shown fantastic balance within the side. They’ve conceded in just two of those 10 matches, while Benin have failed to score in two of their last three games. With that in mind, we see value in backing Senegal to win this tie and keep a clean sheet as they book a semi-final berth.
