The Senegalese hinted at what was to come early on with Sadio Mane hitting the post inside the first minute before Rui Águas’s side saw their task get harder when they received their first red card in the 21st minute.
Qarabağ midfielder Patrick Andrade has received instructions for his departure for the late challenge given after the VAR review.
Apart from this Cape Verde caught and frustrated the Aliou Cissé boys until the 54th minute when the first flashpoint of the game changed the outcome.
Mané and Cape Verde goalkeeper José Vozinha have clashed as they face a challenge at the edge of the box.
It appears that both players were suffering from headaches and needed to be replaced until the referee handed over a red card to the stadium goalkeeper.
The Liverpool striker continued to break the deadline ten minutes later, arriving at the end of the corner before curling the ball home from a distance.
Mané then left the pitch after hearing the impact of the challenge before Bamba Dieng finished it off with a clever move from close to the counter-attack to close the Senegal standings in the last eight.
