Paris Saint-Germain’s Senegalese midfielder Idrissa Gueye is a class act

If you’ve come late to the Africa Cup of Nations party you haven’t missed the champagne, there wasn’t any.

Ahead of yesterday’s fixtures, 23 of the 44 games produced one goal or none at all. Today’s quarter-finals don’t exactly fizz with promise either.

Four games into their campaign and Equatorial Guinea (7pm, BBC2) have scored two goals and conceded one.

Even that’s dizzy stuff compared to opponents Senegal’s group effort – they somehow squeezed five points out of just a single 97th-minute pen from Sadio Mane.

Senegal should have too much this evening, but it might take something special to crack the nut.

For telly fun I’ll try Paris Saint-Germain’s worldie hunter IDRISSA Gueye ‘anytime’ at 14/1 (Paddy) – not to be confused with Senegal team-mate PAPA Gueye. Check your bets.

Mo Salah’s Egypt and Morocco (3pm) should be fruitier. The general 6/4 YES ‘both teams to score’ looks a smidgen too big.

Have that, and also put it in a double with NO ‘both teams score’ in the Senegal match – the roll-up pays about 5/2 (Fred, Coral).

In the Championship, the EFL have handed Derby fans four more weeks of dancing the oblivion limbo.

And if that goes really well they might qualify for the close-hold cha-cha-cha, with a heavy breathing Mike Ashley.

You’d hardly blame them for sitting this one out when Birmingham visit (1.30pm).

Brum’s in-form Scott Hogan will be itching to get on the dance floor. He scored in the reverse and can put his best foot forward today. Get on at a fair 11/4 (Bet’365) anytime scorer’.

Cardiff’s Kieffer Moore is the right tool to get right up the noses of Nottingham Forest (4pm).

The 11/4 (Paddy) ‘anytime scorer’ is good to go if he starts, but with the transfer window rattling, punt the Plan B too.

Young Mark McGuinness is the ‘anytime’ back-up for longshot fans at 13/1 (Paddy). The rising star and former Arsenal youth has scored from set-pieces in three of his last 10 Bluebirds games.

Over in Spain, there’s a mass of expected-goal data that suggests we put a lucky nugget on Villarreal at 66/1 (Hills) to win La Liga ‘without Barca & Real Madrid ’.

Last week: Winner at 5/4
