Senegal vs Uganda Match Analysis & Prediction
18/01/2023 10:00 pm
Senegal will be looking to make it two wins in two African Nations Championship matches when they take on Uganda on Wednesday.
On the other hand, Uganda are seeking to get themselves back of track off the back of a share of the spoils in their opening CHAN game last time out.
Senegal got off to a fine start as they came out on top in a hard-fought contest against the Elephants of Ivory Coast on Saturday, claiming a 1-0 victory.
As a result, the Lions of Teranga sit top of Group A after the first round of matches, two points clear of nearest challengers Congo DR and Uganda.
Senegal will now be taking on an opposing side who are without a victory in the four previous meetings between the sides across all competitions.
Fourteen years on since their last appearance in the knockout round of the African Nations Championship, Pape Thiaw’s side now aim to secure their place in the latter stages of this year’s edition.
Uganda played out a goalless draw against the Leopards of Congo DR in the sides’ group-stage encounter at Stade de 19 Mai 1956 on Saturday.
Milutin Sredojevic’s side have now failed to win any of their five most recent matches either side of 2023, finding the back of the net just once in that period.
Looking to avoid an early CHAN exit for the sixth straight time, the Cranes will know that anything less than a victory in their next game would end their journey once again.
