Senegal have the strength and skill to win this one...
<div><h2><strong>Senegal vs Tunisia</strong></h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Senegal vs Tunisia"><strong>Sunday, July 14, at 30 June Stadium</strong></a></p><p>Senegal will take on Tunisia in an eagerly anticipated semi-final clash in the Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday. Aliou Cissé’s men are bidding to win the competition for the first time and they are the outright favourites to pull it off. They have not been perfect during this competition, as they lost to Algeria in the group stage, but a 3-0 victory over Kenya saw them power into the last 16. They beat Uganda 1-0 and then vanquished Benin by the same scoreline in Wednesday’s quarter-final.</p><p>Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly seems to get better with every match and he has formed a strong defensive pairing with West Ham star Cheikhou Kouyaté, who normally plays in midfield. Idrissa Gueye of Everton has screened that duo well alongside Badou Ndiaye, and Senegal are blessed with great pace in attack. Sadio Mané is one of the world’s best forwards, while M’Baye Niang, Keita Baldé and Ismaila Sarr are also dangerous.</p><p>Tunisia swatted Madagascar aside in the quarter-finals to set up this clash, and they remain unbeaten in the tournament. Yet they have not looked anywhere near as convincing as Senegal. The Tunisians drew all three group games, despite playing the unheralded trio of Angola, Mali and Mauritania. They scraped a 1-1 draw with Ghana in the last 16 and prevailed on penalties, before enjoying a comfortable game against Madagascar, who were never really expected to go so far in the tournament.</p><p>Senegal and Tunisia are the highest ranked teams in this tournament by FIFA, but the Senegalese lead the way for a reason. They have a number of big players plying their trade at some of Europe’s biggest clubs, and they really should win this game. Tunisia will be stubborn at the back, but Senegal have already found a way to unlock some tight defences at this tournament, and Mané and Baldé have the pace, movement and dynamism to win this one. Many of their games have been 0-0 at half-time, but they seem to find a way to get the job done after the break.</p><p><a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes"><strong>Tip:</strong> <em><strong>Senegal to win at 2.15 (23/20) with Ladbrokes; second half to be the highest scoring at 5/4 (2.25)</strong></em></a></p></div>
