Despite boosting some of the best names in Europe including Sadio Mane and Edouard Mendy, Senegal has been struggling at this AFCON.
The Teranga Lions won just one of their group stage match and the lone goal came very late in their first match in controversial manner.
They have kept a clean sheet in all their matches in the competition, but they haven’t scored from open play so far.
They would be favourites in this game and Cape Verde could take advantage of the pressure on them to secure an unlikely win.
The African minnows won one and lost one of their group stage matches and they will want to prove that they have what it takes to cause and upset in this fixture.
They didn’t face opponents as tough as Senegal in the group stages and know they would have to improve their level of performance to earn a win from this fixture.
These countries have met three times before now and Senegal has won every of those encounters.
