Like Senegal, Guinea also struggled to secure a narrow 1-0 win in their opener with an Issiaga Sylla goal in the first half.
Senegal was far from convincing in their opener on Sunday, needing a penalty goal in the last minute from Sadio Mane. Senegal, one of the favorites to lift the trophy in Cameroon this year, will look to win in a more dominant fashion in their second match with the exclusive leadership of Group B at stake.
Senegal has an impressive record against Friday’s opponent, having won eight of the previous 12 meetings. However, the country lost the most recent meeting in 2019, when Guinea achieved a victory on penalties in the qualifying rounds for the African Nations Championship.
Friday’s game will mark the 55th meeting between the two nations. Senegal have won 25 of their previous meetings, while Guinea have won 16 times. There have been 13 ties between the two sides.
