Having kept four consecutive clean sheets in the competition, Senegal have shown themselves to be a solid defensive unit and another shutout on Sunday evening would see them take a big step towards the semi-finals.

Equatorial Guinea, however, have also managed to keep things tight in the tournament and another cagey game looks on the cards, particularly with a place in the last four at stake.
