  • Game of few chances

    Each team probably had one golden chance to score in the game.

    Morgan Guilavogui had the opportunity to put Guinea ahead in the first half, but fired straight at Seny Dieng from close range.

    Senegal then improved after the break, and went close through Abdou Diallo.

    He drew an excellent save out of Aly Keita following a powerful header from a corner, which the Guinea keeper brilliantly tipped over the bar.

    But apart from that it was a game of few chances, and on reflection 0-0 is probably the right result.

    Both teams are still yet to concede in this year’s tournament, but perhaps slightly worryingly, both have only scored once as well.

  • Full time – Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    PEEEP! That will be full time!

    Liverpool team-mates Sadio Mane and Naby Keita play out a drab 0-0 draw.

    It takes both teams to four points after two games, and both are well placed to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

    The other two teams in Group B, Malawi and Zimbabwe, face off later on this afternoon.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    91. This one is well and truly petering out towards full time.

    Guinea are happy to clear downfield when they get the ball and give it back to Senegal, but Mane and Co can’t do anything with it when they have it.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    90. Three minutes of added time are signalled by the fourth official.

    Senegal won in added time last time out, could they repeat the feat once more today?

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    89. A substitution for both teams here.

    Morgan Guilavogui is being replaced by Morlaye Sylla for Guinea, and Bouna Sarr is off for Keita Balde for Senegal.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    88. Ibrahima Conte takes… and it sails high over the crossbar.

    That’s a waste.

    Will it be the last chance for Guinea?

    We’re into the final two minutes of the 90.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    87. This time Keita gets a free kick in dangerous area!

    He’s felled 20 yards out from goal, and the referee blows for a free kick.

    Now then…

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    85. Naby Keita goes down on the edge of the box and looks towards referee Bamlak Tessema.

    He gets nothing, to Keita’s dismay, and the Liverpool man has a right go at the official.

    Keita is booked for his troubles, and is now the fourth Guinea player to be shown a yellow card.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    83. Guinea goalkeeper Aly Keita is into the book now for time-wasting after taking an absolute age to lumber up and take a goal kick.

    Guinea are more than happy with the draw it seems.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    82. Sarr goes for goal from the free kick, but his effort is nowhere near troubling Keita in goal.

    It’s both high and wide of the mark.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    81. Senegal will make another substitution before the free kick is taken.

    Joseph Lopy is on for Boulaye Dia.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    80. That’s about as cynical as it comes from Sylla.

    He hauls down Dia 30 yards out as the ball is played in towards him, stopping the Senegal man from having a run at goal.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    78. Guinea substitution.

    Mory Konate is on for his competitive debut, replacing Amadou Diawara in the middle of the park.

    The drinks break and substitutions have just halted Senegal’s momentum somewhat, which suits Guinea right down to the ground.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    77. It’s not a bad delivery towards Sow at the back post, but can’t get any real purchase on the header and heads it up rather than towards goal.

    He then goes into the book for a late challenge on Diallo as the pair contest for the second ball.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    76. Crystal Palace and Senegal midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate is the third man into the book.

    He catches Guilavogui with a flailing arm as the pair contest for a header on the Guinea left hand side.

    It’s a free kick, and a chance to get a cross into the box.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    75. Into the final 15 minutes of action now.

    The second half has been better than the first, marginally, but the deadlock is still yet to be broken.

    Will we see a goal in the closing stages of the game?

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    74. Senegal substitution.

    There’s a change on the flanks here, as Mame Thiam comes off for Habib Diallo.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    73. Sarr stands over the corner again, and this time puts it right on the goalkeeper Keita.

    The Guinea keeper deals with it, albeit unconvincingly, and just about punches the ball clear.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    72. Play has just stopped for a moment as the players take on some more fluids.

    It will resume with a corner to Senegal.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    71. Dia picks up a dangerous position in the box again as the ball is worked into his feet.

    He tries to let fly with an effort, but the ball is poked away from his feet just as he pulls the trigger.

    It will be a corner though…

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    70. Mane is starting to show his class now as he drops into deeper positions on the pitch.

    He picks it up again, and works his way out to the right hand side.

    The Liverpool man looks up and spots Dia in the box, but Conte just about manages to hold off Dia and hack the ball to safety.

    Guinea are starting to ride their luck a bit now, with 20 minutes still left to play.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    68. Huge chance for Senegal!

    Mane drives powerfully through the middle of the pitch, drawing Guinea defenders to him.

    He releases it on the edge of the box, into Sarr on the right.

    Sarr cuts inside, leaving Sylla on his backside, and opening up space for a shot.

    He has all the time in the world to get an effort away, but fails to test Keita in goal and can only scuffs his effort wide of the mark.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    67. That’s now two Ibrahima Conte’s on the pitch for Guinea, one at the back and one in midfield.

    The sub will come on to provide some much needed fresh legs.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    67. Guinea substitution.

    This isn’t a bad call, with Guinea just starting to tire a bit in the middle of the park.

    Ilaix Moriba is off, with Ibrahima Conte coming on.

  • Senegal 0-0 Guinea

    65. Mane is involved again now, and this time goes down under a challenge from his Liverpool team-mate Keita.

    The Guinea man is booked for the tackle on his club compatriot, and he is the second man to be shown a yellow card.
