AFCON 2022: Burkina Faso vs Senegal Prediction
Burkina Faso are the dark horse of this tournament, and they have been impressive on their route to the semifinal. However, due to their fragile defence they managed to keep only one clean sheet, and It would take a beating to send the favourites out of the tournament.
On the other hand, Senegal have a great experience with great players at their disposal. The likes of Mane, Sarr, Koulibaly and Mendy between the sticks will spearhead their team in this semifinal.
Sportco fancies Senegal to beat Burkina Faso 3-1.
