This is the first quarterfinal of this CAN 2019 in Egypt, and if Senegal was expected at this stage of the competition, Benin is the guest of surprise, he who had never so far exceeded the first round. This meeting is to follow from 16h UT this Wednesday, July 10 on our liveblog.

At the start of this African Cup of Nations , Senegal was often among the contenders for the final victory. It is clear that the Lions of Teranga hold their rank, but perhaps not so imperial as one might have hoped. Easy winners of Tanzania (2-0) and Kenya (3-0), the Senegalese have still stumbled against Algeria (0-1) and they have had all the trouble in the world to get rid of the Uganda in the eighths (1-0). In front of them, Benin realizes a historic CAN. The squirrels have never been out of the group stage and they find themselves in the quarter after having eliminated Morocco on penalties. The Senegalese are therefore warned, the Beninese are capable of everything, especially against the favorites.
