Match preview 📰

Two pre-tournament favourites clash here in what looks like a blockbuster meeting that could determine which side wins Group B. The highest-ranked CAF team, Senegal (FIFA rank: #22) dispatched Tanzania 2-0 in a routine victory that saw them win both halves. A 2-0 win is one that Senegal have become accustomed to in this competition, with each of their last three group stage victories coming via that scoreline. Six of Algeria's last eight AFCON matches have seen both teams score, and we are backing that outcome here. 

Both sides are unbeaten in their last five matches and they could share the spoils in a high-quality contest played out at the 30 June Stadium. 

Players to watch 💫

Schalke 04 centre-back Salif Sané is ruled out against Algeria after suffering an ankle injury during Senegal's 2-0 win over Tanzania. Midfielder Cheikhou Kouyaté replaced him and is expected to get the nod on Thursday after a solid performance. Key man and skipper Sadio Mané returns after suspension. 

Baghdad Bounedjah will lead the attack after scoring the first goal in the match. Riyad Mahrez will hope to replicate his man of the match performance on Thursday. The Manchester City winger's battle with Sadio Mane is undoubtedly the major talking point here.
