The game is billed as a showdown between two Premier League superstars with Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez both scoring three goals in the tournament so far.

Senegal have been efficient in the knockout rounds, winning 1-0 in three consecutive games.

They were almost as solid in the group stages, beating Tanzania and Kenya 2-0 and 3-0 respectively, but their only conceded goal of the tournament came against Algeria in a 1-0 defeat.

North African side Algeria didn’t concede in the group stages, though they had to rely on penalties to defeat Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals.

Both sides look evenly matched, with a crown jewel in each side, meaning this AFCON final is poised to be a classic.

Who will win? RadioTimes.com says…

The only guarantee is that this will be close.

Both teams have looked steely at the back, and either of their centrepiece stars could decide the game.

However, Algeria’s previous narrow victory over Senegal will give them confidence while Youcef Belaïli and Adam Ounas will take the weight off Mahrez’s shoulders.
