Match preview 📰
These sides met in the group stages and Algeria triumphed 1-0, the only blemish on Senegal's record at AFCON 2019 so far. Djamel Belmadi's Algeria side has been superb from the outset. They've had the best attack, with 12 goals scored, and been the tournament's most balanced side overall.
Riyad Mahrez stepped up to the plate in stoppage time to get Algeria to this point with a ferocious free-kick, and Sadio Mane is waiting in the wings for Senegal, hoping to lead them to their first-ever AFCON title.

Senegal's defensive rock Kalidou "K2" Koulibaly is suspended for the Lions of Teranga and that presents a massive selection dilemma for coach Aliou Cisse. Salif Sané is expected to deputise alongside Cheikhou Kouyaté, with Youcef Sabaly filling in at left-back. Idrissa Gueye will anchor the midfield but there are rumours that Krépin Diatta might make way for Rennes flyer Ismaïla Sarr.
Algeria is expected to stick to the starting XI that they fielded in the semifinals, but Napoli winger Adam Ounas must be pushing hard for a start in a varied attacking unit that contains Riyad Mahrez, Youcef Belaïli and Baghdad Boundejah.
