In the group stage, Senegal won Group B with one win and two draws, beating Zimbabwe.
Senegal, runners-up in 2019, have never won the African Cup of Nations.
Equatorial Guinea faced a much tougher test in the last round than Senegal, needing penalty kicks to get past Mali. The two teams ended the match with a 0-0 draw, sending things to the PK. Equatorial Guinea and Mali were tied after five shots, but the former team was eventually victorious after Mali’s Falaye Sacko missed and Equatorial Guinea’s Santiago Eneme, a Nantes B midfielder, scored his shot.
While Equatorial Guinea has only reached the African Cup of Nations twice before, it has shown itself well in both appearances, losing in the quarter-finals in 2012 and finishing fourth in 2015.
