Uganda faces Senegal

Uganda faces Senegal in a match from the 1/8-finals of the Cup of Nations in Africa. Let’s see how these two teams are performing so far in our winning soccer predictions.

Uganda qualified for the final stages of the tournament with three different results – a win, a draw and a lose. They won against Congo DR, made a draw against Zimbabwe and suffered a defeat against the host of the competition Egypt. This showed us that Uganda are capable of getting positive results, but they can also be pretty inconsistent.

Of course, their most important result so far was the 2-0 win against Congo DR in their first game in the group. It was Patrick Kaddu and Emmanuel Okwi who scored the winning goals for Sebastien Desabre’s team. It was a really crucial win for Uganda.

Meanwhile Senegal reached the knockout phase with two wins and one loss in their group. The Lions of Teranga achieved wins over Tanzania and Kenya, but suffered a loss in the derby against Algeria.

In the other two matches against Tanzania and Kenya, Senegal were merciless, scoring five goals without conceding even once. In their last match against Kenya the Lions of Teranga clinched the win with goals from Ismaila Sarr and Sadio Mane. The Liverpool superstar scored twice in the game, showing to everyone that he’s starting to find his rhythm in the competition. Mane missed the first game against Tanzania because of an injury, but now he’s ready to lead his team towards the final.

These are our winning soccer predictions for the Cup of Nations clash between Uganda and Senegal from the 1/8-finals of the competition. We won’t surprise anyone by saying that Senegal are the big favourite here. Except of the match against Algeria, so far they are pretty solid in the tournament.
