Burkina Faso vs Senegal AFCON 2022 Semifinal Preview, Team News and Lineups

Burkina Faso and Senegal will lock horns for the first time in nearly five years. The last encounter was 2-2 goal fest in 2017 when both teams battled it out for a place in the 2018 World Cup that was held in Russia. While Senegal made it to the World Cup tournament in Group D with 14 points in 6 matches, Burkina Faso’s Stallions fell short of the glory, and came second in a group that also included Cape Verde and South Africa.

This will be the first ever AFCON fixture that pits Burkina Faso against Senegal. And at this critical stage of the tournament, it is hard to rule out either side based on historical stats.

While Burkina Faso kicked of the 2022 AFCON 2022 campaign with a 2-1 loss to the hosts, Cameroon, the Stallions came back stronger to edge out Cape Verde in the second group game. A 1-1 draw secured the Stallions a knockout spot. They also bagged a 1-1 draw against Gabon in the knockout game. Senegal never lost in their last 11 matches while Burkina Faso lost only once in as many run of fixtures. Senegal’s progress in the 2022 has been a story of luck and chance. They secured a quarterfinals spot after defeating 9-man Cape Verde in the knockout fixture.

Burkina Faso will be without forward Dango Ouattara who scored the only goal against Tunisia in quarterfinals, which should deal the Stallions a huge blow. Djibril Ouattara is also out with injury after picking a knock in the quarters, the only match he played in the AFCON 2022 so far.

Burkina Faso predicted lineup: Koffi, Yago, Tapsoba, Dayo, Kabore, Guira, Sangare, Bayala, Bande, Toure and Tapsoba.

Senegal predicted lineup: Mendy, Sarr, Koulibaly, Diallo, Ciss, Gueye, Idrissa, Nampalys, Dia, Mane and Diedhiou.
