Senegal vs South Africa Prediction, Preview, Team News and more | COSAFA Cup 2021 Final


Senegal and South Africa will trade tackles in the 2021 COSAFA Cup Final at the Nelson Mandela Stadium on Sunday.

Senegal debuted in the tournament as an invited team and had a worst start when they beat Namibia 2–1 in their opening game.

However, the West Africans rallied and finished on top of Group B to set a semi-final date with Eswatini.

Things also started badly for Senegal in the semi-finals and they found themselves two goals down by halftime. Two goals from the second half forced a penalty and the Teranga Lions won 3–0 in the shootout.

South Africa also topped their group and sealed their place in the final with a 3–0 win over Mozambique in the semi-finals.

Senegal vs South Africa Head-to-Head

Both sides have settled on 10 occasions in the past and Senegal has a slightly better record.

Teranga Lions have four wins to their name, while South Africa were victorious on three occasions.

Their most recent meeting came in a 2017 FIFA World Cup qualifier when Kara Mabodji scored an injury-time winner to give Senegal a 2–1 victory.

Bafana Bafana is unbeaten in six matches since their 2-0 loss to Sudan, ending their hopes of qualifying for Afkon.

Senegal have won all four matches since that stunning 2-1 upset against Namibia in their opening game of the tournament.
