The second round of group stage fixtures are underway at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and the first of those on Friday sees Senegal meet Guinea in B.

This will be a meeting of the top two, after both secured 1-0 victories in their opening encounters - with two Liverpool players making a notable impact in those games.

Sadio Mane netted a last-minute penalty to ensure Senegal beat Zimbabwe, while Naby Keita produced the pass to open the Malawi defence for the only goal of the match in Guinea’s victory.

A victory here for either side should confirm, or close to it, their progression to the knock-out phase of the competition, with the top two plus the four best third-placed teams all reaching that stage.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Wednesday’s games.

When is the match?

The game kicks off at 1pm GMT on Friday, 14 January 2022 in Bafoussam.
