Senegal will square off with Sudan in the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualification Group A match.

The game will be played at the Stade Léopold Sédar Senghor in Dakar on Saturday, October 13.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Lions of Teranga drew 2-2 with Madagascar away in their previous 2019 AFCON qualifier last month.

The draw extended Senegal's winless run to three matches in all competitions having two recorded two draws and one defeat.

The West African giants will be targeting nothing but a victory against an inconsistent Sudan side.

Meanwhile, Sudan suffered a 1-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea away in their previous 2019 AFCON qualifier last month.

This was the Falcons of Jediane's second defeat in their last three games in all competitions having lost to Nigeria and defeated Libya, before facing Equatorial Guinea.

The East African side will be hoping to cause an upset against a formidable Senegal side.
