Why you should back Brazil
The Brazilians didn't fare well in their first match after losing to Croatia on penalties in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals, dropping a 2-1 decision to Morocco in a friendly on March 25. After having nearly three months to regroup, they righted the ship against Guinea on Saturday. Midfielder Joelinton got things started in the 27th minute and winger Rodrygo gave Brazil a 2-0 lead three minutes later.
After Guinea halved the deficit, defender Eder Militao restored the two-goal advantage in the 47th minute and winger Vinicius Junior capped the victory on a penalty in the 88th minute. Brazil has been receiving solid production from Lucas Paqueta of late. The 25-year-old midfielder scored in the team's victory over South Korea in the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup and notched an assist in each of the next three contests after registering just one in his previous 39 outings for the national team.

Why you should back Senegal
The Senegalese are powered by Sadio Mane, who is among the top scorers in 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying with five goals in as many matches. The 31-year-old forward did not convert in either of Senegal's last two contests but netted six goals over his previous five games with the national team across all competitions. Mane will be looking to atone for a disappointing first season with Bayern Munich during which he netted only seven goals in 25 matches after reaching double digits in each of his previous eight campaigns in the Premier League.
Senegal has received production from several other players such as forward Boulaye Dia, who has recorded two goals in three matches for the team. Defender Abdoulaye Seck provided the offense in the side's last outing, netting the lone goal in the draw with Benin, while midfielder Iliman Ndiaye and defenders Youssouf Sabaly and Habib Diallo also have converted during the AFCON qualification tournament. The Senegalese have been strong defensively of late, allowing a total of three goals over their last 11 matches across all competitions. See which team to pick here.
