In a semifinal match that has the feel of a final, the two top teams in Africa, Senegal and Tunisia, square off in the first Africa Cup of Nations semifinal.

The first semifinal in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations feels more like a final, with the top two ranked teams in Africa squaring off for a slot in the final, against either Nigeria or Algeria. Senegal comes in ranked at 22nd overall in the world by FIFA, per Africa News, while Tunisia ranks just three slots below. Senegal are considered the favorites to advance to their first Africa Cup of Nations final since 2002, when the team’s current coach, Aliou Cisse, missed a spot kick that cost his team a penalty shootout that decided the championship that year, against Cameroon. Now Cisse looks to take the team back to the final 17 years later, if they can get past Tunisia in the match that will live stream from Cairo.

“We’re close to the goal, in the sense of us being in the semi-finals. Having got to this stage here we have hope. But we know the hardest is yet to come,” Cisse said on Saturday, as quoted by The South African.

But Tunisia reached the semifinal by becoming the first team to defeat the Cinderella Madagascar team, and they did it in decisive 3-0 fashion.

“We are very satisfied we are in the semi-finals,” Tunisia boss Alain Giresse said, as quoted by BeIn Sports. “Now we are at this stage of the competition, which Tunisia had been waiting for for many years. It was an objective.”
