The first semifinal of the Africa Cup of Nations will be played today at 19:00, between Burkina Faso and Senegal. From 2000 until now, the two nations have faced each other four times, with Senegal having a victory while the other three matches ended in a draw, the most recent confrontation taking place in 2017. The winner of this match will meet in the grand final winner of the match between Cameroon and Egypt.
The presence of Burkina Faso in the semifinals of the Africa Cup of Nations is not a surprise, given that they have important players who play in the strong European football championships. Burkina Faso reached the semifinals after the eighth passed Gabon after the shots from 11, at the end of a very intense match. In the quarterfinals, Burkina Faso beat Tunisia 1-0, the only goal being scored by the young 19-year-old striker from Lorient, Dango Ouattara.
On the other hand, Senegal is one of the favorites to win the competition, after playing the final last season, but surprisingly losing 1-0 to Algeria. In the round of 16, Senegal defeated Cape Verde 2-0 in national football, and in the quarterfinals they defeated Equatorial Guinea 3-1. In the last 20 games, Senegal has recorded 15 victories, three draws and only two defeats. Currently, Senegal has reached 11 consecutive matches without defeat.
