Demba Ba: Expected to keep place

Africa Cup of Nations co-hosts Equatorial Guinea will be looking to make it back-to-back Group A victories when they take on Senegal on Wednesday evening.

Nzalang Nacional marked the opening of the 2012 showpiece with a smash-and-grab 1-0 victory over Libya on Saturday, raising the expectations surrounding Gilson Paulo's squad.

Meanwhile, Senegal, perennial underachievers on the African continent, started their campaign with a shock 2-1 defeat to Zambia, and anything but three points against the co-hosts in midweek could sign the Lions of Teranga's departure papers.

Equatorial Guinea coach Paulo is unlikely to tinker too much with his squad, with Juvenal, Bopido, Randy and Fabiani all expected to retain their places in the starting XI.

For Senegal, coach Amara Traore has been tipped to drop captain Mamadou Niang following his lacklustre display against Zambia.

Newcastle striker Demba Ba is likely to start up front, despite missing some guilt-edge chances in their opening encounter.
