Senegal - to pull of a close win
Having fallen in the semifinal round in their previous continental event, Senegal will be eager to go one better this time. Last Friday evening at Stade 19 Mai 1956, Senegal emerged victorious with a squeaker of a 1-0 victory over Mauritania's Lions of Chinguetti. The outcome of the match was determined 11 minutes before the interval when Lamine Camara made an accurate shot from 12 yards out to send Pape Thiaw's team onto the next round of competition. As a consequence of this, the Lions of Teranga have already triumphed in three of the four competitions they have participated in since the turn of the year, despite the fact that they did not achieve victory in either of their final two outings in 2022. Following that will be the test posed by a rival that has not been victorious in any of the four previous encounters between the teams across all events. Senegal will be eager to go one better this time with a big percentage of their COSAFA Cup squad in action at the African Nations Championship.
Madagascar - Barea eyes final
The Mambas of Mozambique were no match for Madagascar, who cruised to an easy 3-1 victory at the Mohamed Hamlaoui Stadium on Saturday. Madagascar's play was significantly superior to that of Mozambique's Mambas. Isac's late effort was rendered meaningless as a result of the efforts of Romuald Rakotondrabe's men, who broke the impasse through the efforts of Solom Raza. This was followed by strikes from Jean Razafindrakoto and Marcio Ravelomanantsoa, which clinched the deal. Barea have now won each of their five matches on either side of the new year, during which time they have conceded only three goals while scoring a staggering 14 of their own. Madagascar is currently only 90 minutes away from reaching the final in their first appearance at this level, and they have now set their sights on making even more history against one of the favorites to win the 2023 CHAN.
