Senegal host Angola in neutral territory
20 March 2013, 12:10
Conakry - Senegal will look to make the most of hosting Angola in neutral Guinea when the teams clash for a Group J 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifier in Conakry on Saturday evening.
Group leaders Senegal have been forced to play their two remaining home games in the round-robin phase at a neutral venue due to a ban imposed on them by CAF. This follows riots in their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying playoff match in Dakar against Ivory Coast last year.
That the Teranga Lions have been forced away from their usual stronghold is good news for Angola, though the ‘visitors’ are still looking to recover from a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations campaign in which they finished bottom of Group A in South Africa 2013.
