Hosts Mozambique are keen to bounce back to winning ways when they host Senegal in their Group L AFCON qualifier on Tuesday.
Mozambique were destroyed 5-1 by The Lions of Teranga in the reverse fixture last week, their first defeat of the campaign.
Meanwhile, defending champions Senegal have a perfect record in the qualifiers and are atop the group with 9 points after 3 games.
Needing just three points from their final three outings to secure a place at the 2024 AFCON, Senegal are keen to make their mark as African giants.
Mozambique kicked off 2023 with a three-match unbeaten run but have since conceded 9 goals in three games, scoring just one goal.
Senegal star Sadio Mane has scored in each of Senegal’s three AFCON qualifiers so far, netting a total of five goals – the most alongside Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen.
This is a very important clash for Mozambique, who are desperate to qualify for AFCON for the first time since 2010.
Will Senegal continue their perfect run in the qualifiers or can Mozambique finally get a win against their opponents?
