Action in the match between Senegal and GuineaThere were few clear sights at goal in Bafoussam

Senegal and Guinea moved closer to reaching the last 16 at the Africa Cup of Nations following a 0-0 draw.

The Guineans had the only real chance of the first half as Seny Dieng saved from Morgan Guilavogui.

Senegal grew into the Group B clash after the break, as Abdou Diallo had a header tipped over and Bouna Sarr dragged a shot across goal and wide.

Both sides have four points after two games, which could see them progress as one of four best third-placed teams.

Senegal had needed a 97th-minute penalty to beat Zimbabwe in their opening game and Aliou Cisse's side, who are among the favourites for the title, put in another disjointed display.
