Malawi vs Senegal Predictions

  • Malawi lost seven of their last nine matches.
  • Senegal have kept three consecutive clean sheets.
  • Just one of Malawi’s last ten games produced at least four goals.

Last roll of the dice for Malawi

Malawi are guaranteed to finish in at least third place given that the tie-breaker goes on head-to-head matches before goal difference and they are three points ahead of Zimbabwe. A draw would all but secure qualification through third placed rankings, but defeat will leave them at risk.

Recent Malawi form hardly inspires confidence in them springing a surprise here though, given that they failed to score in four of their last six matches while losing five. Considering that questionable form, they will more than likely struggle against the pre-tournament favourites, Senegal.

Senegal could finish with a flourish

While Senegal have posted solid results in their opening two games, they have hardly set the world alight with their return of just one goal so far, in spite of boasting some incredible attacking talents in the form of Sadio Mane and Boulaye Dia just to name a couple.

In fact, Senegal are yet to score from open play so far in this tournament with their only goal coming from the penalty spot. I expect that Senegal will wrap this group up one way or another, but we don’t expect this one to be an instant classic.

The price around a Senegal win gives us very little value, so we predict a Senegalese victory with under 3.5 total goals, which fits in with the low-scoring theme we have witnessed in this tournament up to this point.
