We are apparoaching the final round of Africa Cup of Nations group games and there is still plenty of value on offer.
<div><h2>Madagascar v Nigeria</h2><p><strong>Sunday, June 30, at Alexandria Stadium</strong></p><p>Madagascar have excelled on their Africa Cup of Nations debut, taking four points from two games to sit second in their group. They picked up a 2-2 draw with Guinea in their opener and then beat Burundi 1-0 last time out. Victory against Nigeria would see them seize Group B, but that is unlikely. The Super Eagles have won two out of two and they are yet to concede a goal. They are one of the strongest teams in this tournament and they have enough quality to see off Madagascar in their final group game. A draw would be good enough for them to finish top of the pile and secure the best possible tie in knockout stages, but they are likely to go for all three points. Alex Iwobi, Ahmed Musa and Odio Ighalo offer plenty of pace and invention, and that could be enough to swing this one in Nigeria’s favour.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes"><em><strong>Tip: Nigeria to win at even money (2.0) with </strong></em></a><em><strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Ladbrokes</a></strong></em></p><h2>Uganda v Egypt</h2><p><strong>Sunday, June 30, at Cairo International Stadium</strong></p><p>An identical situation has developed in Group A, where Egypt are top with six points and Uganda are second on four points. The Ugandans beat DR Congo 2-0 in their opener and then battled to a 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe and that should see them comfortably through to the next round. They could leapfrog Egypt and win the group with a victory in this game, but again that is a big ask. The Egyptians are the hosts and the tournament favourites, led by the brilliant Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool forward is fresh from winning the Champions League and he inspired his side to a 2-0 win against DR Congo last time out. That followed a 1-0 victory over Zimbabwe, in which Trezeguet was on target. The heat in Egypt means that we have seen low-scoring games as players struggle with fatigue, and we could be in for another slightly lethargic contest here, but Egypt should edge it in front of a partisan crowd in Cairo.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway"><em><strong>Tip: Egypt to win at 1.80 with Betway</strong></em></a></p><h2>Kenya v Senegal</h2><p><strong>Monday, July 1, at 30 June Stadium</strong></p><p>On paper Senegal look like the best team at this tournament, as they are blessed with phenomenal talent in every department. The hulking Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli marshals a strong defence and Sadio Mané of Liverpool is a real livewire up front. However, they slumped to a 1-0 defeat against a Riyad Mahrez-inspired Algeria side last time out, denting their credentials. They won their opener 2-0 against Tanzania and they need to bounce back with another victory on Monday. They should be able to pull it off. Kenya lost 2-0 to Algeria in their opener, but dragged themselves right back into contention with a 3-2 victory against group whipping boys Tanzania last time out. Their star man is Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama and it will be interesting to see him lock horns with Everton’s Idrissa Gana Gueye in the centre of the park. Overall Senegal should be too strong for Kenya and they should soar into the knockout stage of the tournament with a win here.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power"><em><strong>Tip: Senegal to win half-time / full-time at 5/4 (2.25) with Paddy Power</strong></em></a></p></div>
