Senegal only need to record a draw against Algeria to book their spot in the quarter-finals of the competitionReuters

Senegal and Algeria come face to face in their final Group C of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations at the Stade Leopold Senghor.

The Lions of Teranga, who have been drawn in the toughest group of the competition alongside Ghana, Algeria and South Africa, have done pretty well so far as they currently sit at the top of their pool with four points from two games.

After an impressive 2-1 victory over Ghana in their opening fixture, Senegal were expected to easily book their place in the knock-out stages of the competition.

However, an unexpected 1-1 draw against underdogs South Africa means that they will at least need a draw in their final group fixture against Algeria to guarantee themselves a place in the quarter-finals of the 2015 Africa Cup.

Considering their run in the competition so far, the Lions of Teranga, who have not managed to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition since 2006, are expected to beat Algeria, but head coach for Alain Giresse admits that his side will not be taking anything for granted.

"Nothing is settled," he told Goal. "The final day will be critical. That shows how difficult a group this is."

Meanwhile, Algeria will also be looking to beat Senegal in their final group fixture in order to book a spot in the next round of the tournament.

Despite them starting their 2015 African Nations Cup campaign with an impressive 3-1 over South Africa, their chances of qualifying for the last eight of the competition was greatly diminished, following their narrow 0-1 defeat to Ghana in their second fixture.

Now the Greens, who finished in fourth place in the 2010 African Nations Cup, are currently in a do-or-die situation as they need to beat Senegal in their final group fixture if they want to qualify for the final eight of the competition.

After Algeria's defeat to Ghana, there were reports of their being some disagreements among the 23-man squad.

However, head coach Christian Gourcuff quashed all these rumours, insisting that his players are fully focused ahead of their final group fixture.

"It is certain that in a group, there is always something going on, but the relationships are excellent and there is a great atmosphere," the Frenchman told Goal."There is a lot of unity and solidarity and this is priceless. Now there are totally false things that are said here and there and I leave full responsibility to the reviewers."

Gourcuff also insists that his side will be doing everything they can to beat Senegal and progress to the next round of the competition.

"We will address this game against Senegal and we'll do everything to win. We will have time to recover and prepare as it should be for this very important game."
