SEN vs CAV Dream11 Prediction for Senegal vs Cape Verde Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


SEN vs CAV Dream11: Senegal had a terrible time in the group stage. They were thwarted by Zimbabwe in their first match, but got away with it thanks to a dubious penalty in the 97th minute. After that, they drew goalless draws against Guinea and Malawi. Despite having a star-studded lineup, the Lions of Teranga have unable to put together any form of cohesive attacking play. Cape Verde kicked up their tournament with a 1-0 win over a ten-man Ethiopia. In the groups, that was their only win. This match is predicted to be low-scoring, as has been the case throughout the competition, but Senegal is expected to win.

Who will win today’s SEN vs CAV match?

  • Senegal secured their last-16 spot despite scoring just one goal in their three group stage games, that coming from the spot in a late 1-0 win over Zimbabwe.
  • There is more to come from the Lions of Teranga, who’ll look to capitalise on the early exits of the likes of Ghana, Algeria and Nigeria.
  • Cape Verde progressed with four points from their three games, and they held their own against tournament hosts Cameroon in their final Group A game. However, they have lost their last four meetings with Senegal, conceding seven and scoring none, including a 2-0 defeat last June.
  • It’s surely only a matter of time before Senegal click into gear and while Cape Verde may frustrate the African heavyweights, Aliou Cisse’s should have what it takes to win this in normal time.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Senegal in this clash is 1.65 as per 1XBET.
