All eyes will be on Cairo International Stadium when Senegal and Algeria take on each other in the 2019 AFCON final. The Lions of Teranga defeated Tunisia 1-0 in the semis thanks to Dylan Bronn’s own goal in extra time, with the team keeping their fifth clean sheet of the tournament. Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly once again proved his worth at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, but, as always, a man to keep an eye on in Aliou Cisse’s team will be Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane, who has netted three goals at the tournament to date. Riyad Mahrez, on the other hand, helped Algeria beat Nigeria in the semis as he scored a wonder free-kick goal in the dying minutes of the match.
Algeria and Senegal seem to be evenly matched ahead of the title game and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
A place in the Europa League second qualifying round will be at stake when Levski Sofia and Ruzomberok face each other at Vivacom Arena – Georgi Asparuhov in the return leg. The Bulgarian side did well to beat the Slovaks 2-0 in Ruzomberok, meaning that they are with one foot in round 2. Levski Sofia recorded a 3-2 win over Vaduz in their last home game in the Europa League, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Thursday’s football match.
A man to watch in the home team will be Brazil international Paulinho, who found the net in the first leg. Ruzomberok need a big win in the second leg if they are to advance to the Europa League second qualifying round, but seeing that they failed to impress in the 2-0 loss to Levski in front of home fans, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Bulgaria.
