We expect an over here for multiple reasons. First off, Benin have to win this one at all costs because they still have a chance to finish 2nd in the group and qualify ahead.

Nevertheless, the season in Europe is over and all of their big names will be available and well-rested for this game. They will come out with the best they have and we expect them to still win this match even though they do not have to win it.

Benin vs Senegal Team Previews
Benin have a lot more potential than what has been shown to date and we think that they have a good chance of qualifying here. But will they beat Senegal – we doubt it. Their problems in defense are too big to handle one of the strongest attacks on the continent.
Senegal have obviously been exceptional in recent years and the main reason has a name – Sadio Mane. The national team was unfortunate to play in the WC without him but he should be back on track now and Senegal definitely look dangerous. They are the main contender to win the AFCON tournament.
