The Africa Cup of Nations favourites will look to join hosts Cameroon in the last 16 as they return to Group B action this afternoon.
Beaten 2019 finalists Senegal are the highest-ranked team at AFCON this year, though struggled to find a way past Zimbabwe in their opening fixture on Monday.
The Covid-hit Lions of Teranga needed a last-gasp penalty from Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane to win that cagey contest in Bafoussam.
After Cameroon’s decisive win over Ethiopia yesterday, Senegal will look to step up a gear this afternoon as they try and seal a place in the knockouts with a match to spare.
But this is poised to be another difficult contest against Guinea, whose squad includes the likes of Mane’s Anfield team-mate Naby Keita and Roma’s Amadou Diawara.
Kaba Diawara’s side have also been struggling with a Covid-19 sudden increase, though did nevertheless manage to see off Malawi earlier this week courtesy of left-back Issiaga Sylla’s first-half goal.
