Senegal meet Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations Final 2019 at the Cairo International Stadium on Friday.
The teams have already faced each other in the group stage of this year’s tournament, with Algeria running out 1-0 winners through a Youcef Belaili goal just after the interval.
At the semi-final stage, Senegal required extra-time before overcoming Tunisia 1-0 courtesy of a Dylan Bronn own goal. It was a game in which both teams missed a penalty in the last 15 of the regulation 90 minutes.
Taking aside Algeria and Tunisia, Senegal has won their remaining four games at the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 without conceding a goal. What needs to be taken into account though is that those other four games were against Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Benin – not exactly continental, let alone global, heavyweights of the game.
Algeria were also taken to the wire in their game against Nigeria, where a Riyad Mahrez goal five minutes into stoppage-time gave them a 2-1 victory. Although taken to penalties by Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals, Algeria has won all six games at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
