Punters should expect a tough battle in Cairo, with very little separating the Teranga Lions and Carthage Eagles

The 30 June Stadium hosts the first 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi-final match between Tunisia and Senegal on Sunday afternoon.

The Senegalese will play in their second Afcon semi-final, having defeated West African neighbours, Benin Republic in Cairo in the quarter-finals, and will be optimistic of securing their first ever continental title. They won nine of their last 10 matches, their only defeat suffered in the hands of Algeria.

Aliou Cisse’s side are backed to come out on top at (2.05) odds with bet365.

Alain Giresse's men trashed debutants Madagascar, 3-0 in the quarter-finals, which was their first victory in 90 minutes in this edition. They were unbeaten in nine of their last 10 outings (W5 D4), with defeat last recorded against Algeria in March. The 2004 Afcon champions were unbeaten in six of their previous seven meetings with Senegal (W3 D3 L1) and are tipped to come out victorious at odds of (4.00) with the same bet firm.

Three of the last seven outings between these two have ended in draws. A similar outcome is offered at (3.10).

Both teams are unbeaten at half-time in the ongoing Afcon - Tunisia sharing the spoils during the break four times, while Senegal have done likewise thrice.

A 'No victor no vanquish' outcome at half-time has also paid out in five of the last seven head to head meetings between this pair. A similar outcome is offered at (1.95) with bet365.
