Laborious victory for the Lions of Teranga

Senegal won a difficult but crucial victory against Mauritania, the red lantern before this 4th day. The Lions of Teranga, after a start to the match dominated by their opponents, took the advantage thanks to a header from Diallo in the 27th minute, following a service from Pape Matar Sarr. Despite some scares at the end of the match, the Senegalese were able to maintain their lead and moved back to the top of the group with 8 points.

In Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of Congo provided the essentials by beating Togo 1-0. The Leopards quickly opened the scoring thanks to Meschack Elia in the 6th minute, on a pass from Yoane Wissa. Although dominant throughout the match, they did not manage to score more but held their lead until the end. With this victory, the DRC now has 7 points and remains in the race for qualification.
