Burkina Faso’s shock win over Tunisia in the quarter finals, thanks to Dango Ouattara’s first half injury time strike, underlined how much they have improved over the course of the tournament following their opening match defeat to host’s Cameroon.
They nevertheless remain a major outside bet to lift the Cup of Nations trophy on Sunday, and will have to do without Ouattara after his somewhat harsh late red card last time out.
Tournament favorites Senegal meanwhile overcame Equatorial Guinea to set up this last four clash, with Premier League stars Cheikhou Kouyate and Ismaila Sarr both on target in the 3-1 win. Key man Sadio Mane was once again instrumental in the victory for the Lions of Teranga, and the Liverpool star may well be the difference between the two sides here today.

Watch Burkina Faso vs Senegal from anywhere
If you’re abroad at any point during the AFCON, you probably won’t be able to watch the footy like you normally would at home.
This is because of geo-blocking, a digital restriction that means certain streaming services are only accessible in the region they’re based in. Don’t sweat it, though, as you’ve got the option of using a VPN to tune to your preferred coverage wherever you are.

How to watch beIN Sports without cable
If you don’t have the channel on cable, don’t worry. A great alternative option is cord-cutting streaming service Sling TV. If you already have Sling, you can add beIN Sports for an extra $5 per month. If you don’t, you can currently try out Sling for free for 3 days to see if you like it. It’s a good service and well worth a go.
Another costlier (but more thorough) option is a FuboTV plan. The FuboTV cost of its standard plan is $64.99 a month for access to more than 110 channels – including nearly all the sports networks you could ask for. But test it out for free first with a FuboTV FREE trial.
