Senegal News and Form
Senegal were second-placed finishers in the group stage to Algeria. Their only loss in the group happened against the Algerians in the battle for top spot. That put them through to a round of sixteen tie against Uganda. They dug out a narrow 1-0 success thanks to one of their star players, Sadio Mane coming up with the only goal of the game. Then it was their fixture against Benin when another of their players from the English Premier League, Everton’s Idrissa Gueye delivered the only goal of the game.
So that is back to back 1-0 wins for them in the competition now. So while it has been fine margins for them, they have been digging out their rewards. Having those extra touches of quality makes a huge difference. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is their top scorer with three goals in the tournament. It has been some fine form that the Lions of Teranga have put together since October last year. They have won 10 of their last 11 games now. During that extended streak of form, they have picked up a whopping nine clean sheets. It has been just one conceded in their five tournament fixtures.

Tunisia News and Form
The Eagles of Carthage had a much more comfortable time of things in their quarter-final tie. They were up against minnows Madagascar, who were the big underdog story of the entire competition. Tunisia romped to a 3-0 win. That was actually their first win of the tournament. They had drawn all three of their group stages games. Then in their round of sixteen tie, they had played out a 1-1 draw with Ghana after Tunisia had conceded in the 92nd minute of the fixture. The Tunisians collected the penalty shoot out win 5-4.
Tunisia are now currently on an eight-match undefeated streak of form (W4 D4). During that spell, they have taken the three clean sheets only, but two of those have come inside their last three games. This is the first time that they have been past the quarter-finals since their successful 2004 campaign. Their top scorer in this tournament with two goals is Youssef Msakni. It has been a strange campaign from them given the amount of draws that they have put up. Will that big quarter-final get them to a better place?
