Senegal are going in Africa Cup of Nations quarter finals heads high having lost only one game in their previous six matches, winning five of them. In the AfCoN, they begun their journey with a 2-0 win over Tanzania.
Benin on the other hand should not be underestimated. They have not lost a single match in their previous 6. They begun the tournament with a 2-2 draw with Ghana and surprisingly but deserving eliminated Morocco in penalties after a 1-1 draw in the round of 16.
These teams have met twice in the last 11 years Senegal winning both games 2-1. Their previous two meetings have witnessed two or more goals with both teams scoring.
Khaled Adenon is going to miss this match after he was red carded in their round of 16 clash with Morocco. Ndiaye and Koulibaly have yellow cards and any additional yellow card will see them miss semi finals if Senegal proceeds.
Senegal have never lost to Benin in the previous 4 meetings, winning three and one draw.
