Bayern Munich will have one representative in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nationals Final as Bouna Sarr and Senegal beat Burkina Faso 3-1 in one of the two semifinals. On the other side of the bracket, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Cameroon fell on penalties to Egypt.
The Final is now set with Senegal and Egypt facing each other on Sunday, February 6 in Yaoundé for the title.
Senegal will be looking to win their first ever AFCON. In 2019, they finished in second place after dropping the Final 0-1 to Algeria. Egypt have won the tournament a record 7 times, and if they win their 8th, it would push them three clear of Cameroon’s five.
Sarr started at right back and went the distance again for Senegal, while Choupo-Moting didn’t get off the bench for Cameroon.
CAF still does third place games at the AFCON. So, on Sunday, Choupo-Moting and Cameroon get a chance to redeem themselves in the third place game when they face Burkina Faso.
