In contrast to the Teranga Lions, who have already guaranteed their spot in the round of 16, the National Elephants need just one point to finish in the top two of the group and ensure their qualification for the knockout stage.
After defeating Cameroon 3-1 in their second group match, Senegal guaranteed their spot in the AFCON 2023 knockout stages.
Guinea, though, cannot afford to relax before Tuesday’s pivotal fight for qualification.
The Guineans only need one point to guarantee themselves a top-two ranking and a position in the knockout stages.
If they lose, though, they would have to hope that Cameroon loses to Gambia or that they have a better goal differential if both teams end with four points.
It is noteworthy because Senegal and Guinea played to a goalless draw in their group at the previous AFCON.
When the National Elephants play the defending champs on Tuesday, they definitely want to repeat that outcome.
Here is how both teams line up
Guinea Starting XI
Kone, Sylla, Camara, Sow, Conte, Toure, Diawara, Keita, Camara, Conte, Guirassy
Senegal Starting XI
Mendy, Diatta, Seck, Koulibaly, Jakobs, Mendy, Gueye, Sarr, Sarr, Mane, Diallo
