Under 2.5 @13/20 (1.65)
We expect one of the toughest AFCON 2022 matches since the tournament began in this fixture between Malawi and Senegal. It is a battle for a direct playoff spot, so a tense duel is our expectation. With that, we don’t expect a lot of goals to be scored in this match. Despite a shaky defence and only two clean sheets in the last ten games, we expect Malawi to shore things up in this game.
Ne breakthrough in first-half @ 6/5 (2.20)
A tough duel between Malawi and Senegal will give us the side to advance to the next round of the 2022 AFCON. And while the loser will still have a chance to participate in 3rd place playoffs, this is expected to be one of the most difficult games so far. Malawi scored a goal in a previous encounter with the Lions of Teranga. And even though Malawians lost that game, defeating Zimbabwe in the second game of the 2022 AFCON was a huge achievement. We trust they can mount another strong challenge in this third group stage fixture to deny second an easy victory. Our second prediction backs a draw at half-time.
