AFCON FINAL: Will Senegal Finally End Quest For Glory?

The Africa Cup of Nations will come to a close on Sunday with the final set to be played at the Paul Biya Stadium, Olembe in Cameroon.

It has been a month-long tournament full of intrigues and entertainment. It started with 24 teams and now we are into the final where record champions Egypt will take on back-to-back finalists, Senegal. Cameroon will play Burkina Faso in the third-place playoff on Saturday.

Showmax has been streaming all AFCON matches and the final two games will equally be live on Visit to register, subscribe and enjoy Africa’s premier football competition.

Senegal vs Egypt

Egypt and Senegal have met seven times before. Each team has registered three wins while the other game has ended in a draw. Egypt have won seven AFCON titles and the Lions of Teranga, who have never lifted the prestigious title will be hoping to avoid a third defeat in the final and second in a row.

Senegal can be said to have some advantage heading into the game, they have rested a day more compared to Egypt and they face the Pharaohs whose all knock-out matches have ended in extra time and can be said to be carrying some form of fatigue.

Senegal started the tournament slowly but picked in the quarters and semis and are now scoring goals for fun. They however face a team that is solid at the back and it is a game that could be settled by fine margins. Liverpool pair of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane could settle the tie that will be staged at the Olembe stadium

Burkina Faso vs Cameroon

In the playoff, hosts Cameroon will take on Burkina Faso on Saturday. The two teams lost to Egypt and Senegal respectively in the semis. This is a match that both coaches could decide to field ‘weak’ teams in order to give players who have not played much some playtime. The match that will precede the final will equally be live on Showmax.
