Match Preview

A victory against the DR Congo in their group opener laid the foundation for Uganda’s first appearance in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) knockout rounds since 1978, a year they finished runners up. However, with just one win in their last six AFCON tournament fixtures (W1, D2, L3), Uganda will be considered big underdogs here.
None of those aforementioned six games featured more than two goals, and it’s now four in a row where precisely two match goals have been scored. Notably, 83.33% of the match goals in their games this tournament have arrived before half-time.
Despite being one of the pre-tournament favourites, Senegal have never won an AFCON before, but have secured two quarter-final appearances and a semi-final since their second place finish in 2002. They enter this match on a high after winning 3-0 in their final group stage match – the joint-second biggest win of the group stage.
In contrast to their opponents, Senegal have seen 83.33% of the match goals in their tournament games arrive after the break. Overall, they come into this in good form with eight wins in their last nine matches – seven of those ‘to nil’.
Players to watch: Emmanuel Okwi has scored two of Uganda’s three tournament goals – both from within the six-yard box. Senegalese star forward Sadio Mané netted two goals in his last match, and can become Senegal’s joint-third all-time top scorer with another two.
Stat attack: Two of Uganda’s three goals this tournament have been headers.
Frustrating their opponents, teams facing Senegal this tournament have been shown an average of 3.33 yellow cards. There’s also been one red.
Senegal have dominated possession in their three matches so far, keeping the ball 61% of the time on average.
Senegal have been awarded 5.67 corners per match on average this tournament.
