Senegal vs Cameroon: preview

When the draw was made for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, this Group C clash between Cameroon and current title holders Senegal was the one that really stuck out. When the Teranga Lions come up against the Indomitable Lions, you know that it's going to be fierce.

It's so far so good for champions Senegal after they strolled to a 3-0 win over Gambia in their first game. Star man Sadio Mane set up Marseille midfielder Pape Gueye to open things within the first five minutes and, when the opponents had a man sent off just before half-time, the writing was on the wall.

While Senegal will return to the boiling hot Charles Konan Banny Stadium in Yamoussoukro with a swagger today, it's a different story for Cameroon who failed to get the better of a Guinea side that played the second-half of their game with 10 men.

Drawing 1-1 wasn't exactly in Rigobert Song's plans, and his mood won't have been brightened by the fact that star striker Vincent Aboubakar is still missing through injury. He does welcome Manchester United keeper Andre Onana back for this one though. Tottenham's Pape Matar Sarr is back in the starting XI for Senegal.

Games between these sides are typically cagey, frugal affairs, with only three goals scored in their previous seven encounters. But there's something about a Mane and Onana match-up that just screams goals to us...
