Mauritania – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Mourabitounes" have only recently begun to make a name for themselves in football. The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) was their third consecutive continental tournament, and the first time they advanced to the knockout stage, thanks to a single victory over Algeria. Apart from that surprise win, they lost all three other matches in the tournament.

In the qualifiers, the team is among the underdogs: they lost 0-2 to DR Congo and drew 0-0 with South Sudan. Even in friendly matches, they could only manage draws. Hosting Sudan, they lost 0-2.

Senegal – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Lions of Teranga" finally won the AFCON in the last edition and played in the World Cup. They have continued to show good results since then. However, despite a string of victories, they ended their AFCON campaign in the round of 16 after a 1-1 draw with Ivory Coast and losing in the penalty shootout.

Under coach Aliou Cissé, they failed to score and thus did not win against the modest Togo in November. Resuming the qualifiers, the favorites drew 1-1 with DR Congo, exchanging goals in the middle of the second half.
