SEN vs ZIM Dream11 Prediction for Senegal vs Zimbabwe Africa Cup of Nations Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

SEN vs ZIM Dream11: Senegal are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions if only counting games that did not go beyond 90 minutes, that run would stand at 11 games. The 2019 runners-up will be desperate to go one better this time around as they aim to earn a maiden Africa Cup of Nations title and they will be confident of making a good start here as they take on Zimbabwe. They have failed to win any of their last 12 in all competitions and the respective form of the two teams points to an obvious winner in this one.

With his ability to provide tackles and interceptions, as well as his precise goal-scoring skills, Idrissa Gueye can improve his performance in this game on both defence and offence.

Who will win today’s SEN vs ZIM match?

  • Senegal approach the tournament as slight favourites having fallen at the final hurdle, literally, against Algeria in 2019 as they still await a first ever Cup of Nations title.
  • With Sadio Mane’s star arguably waning and the likes of Idrissa Gueye, Cheikhou Kouyate and Kalidou Koulibaly all now the wrong side of 30, this could be the best chance Aliou Cisse’s side have for some time, despite some exciting young talent in their ranks.
  • As far as Zimbabwe are concerned, a draw here would be a huge result for their hopes of making the knockout phase for the first time ever, though a run of 12 matches without a win heading into the tournament suggests they will really struggle to achieve either feat.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of a win for Senegal in this clash is 1.29 as per bet365.
