Senegal -1

Reason for tip

Senegal were perhaps unlucky in their opening defeat to the Netherlands, while Qatar were well beaten by Ecuador. Senegal raised their levels at AFCON earlier this year as they won three of their knockout games by two-goal margins so they can win with room to spare against the host nation.

Senegal 3-0

Reason for tip

Qatar never looked like scoring against Ecuador and may struggle to find a way through against a Senegal side who held out for 84 minutes against the Dutch. Senegal are a strong and physical side and they can claim a convincing 3-0 win.

Krepin Diatta To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Senegal’s Krepin Diatta had two attempts against the Netherlands and should see a few chances come his way on Friday, so back him to open his account in Qatar.

Qatar vs Senegal Predictions

  • Senegal won three of their four knockout games by two or more goals at AFCON earlier this year.
  • Qatar lost to Ecuador 2-0 in their opener.
  • Senegal held out for 84 minutes against the Netherlands.
  • Krepin Diatta had two shots against the Dutch.

Must win meeting for Qatar and Senegal

Host nation Qatar come up against Senegal in the World Cup on Friday and both nations are still seeking their first points.

Qatar lost out 2-0 to Ecuador in their opener and they never really looked capable of getting anything out of the game. African champions Senegal went down by the same scoreline to the Netherlands and were perhaps unlucky not to at least claim a point.

Senegal should be too strong for Qatar

Qatar were outclassed in all areas of the pitch by a well organised Ecuador outfit and they may struggle against a more physical Senegal side.

The Lions of Teranga had some good moments against the Dutch, and they should enjoy greater success against a lesser standard of opposition.

I’m opting for a Senegal win with a -1 handicap as my main bet for this game based on how these two sides fared in their openers. Aliou Cisse’s men have only won two of their last 10 games by two or more goals but they did show a bit of invention and creativity against a good Oranje team.

Senegal have shown they can rise to the occasion previously as they won three of their four knockout games in their successful AFCON campaign earlier this year by at least two goals and they can step up and win this game with some room to spare as they attempt to reach the knockout stages.

Goals could be elusive for host nation

Qatar never looked likely to get on the scoresheet against Ecuador and they may struggle going forward again when they take on Senegal.

The African outfit held out for 84 minutes against the Dutch before coming unstuck, and they can hold out against Qatar’s limp attack by recording a 3-0 victory.

In the absence of star man Sadio Mane, Senegal need someone to fill the void and Krepin Diatta could be that man. Diatta had two attempts against Holland but didn’t manage a shot on target, the fact he got into shooting positions is encouraging, however, and he looks an interesting option for our anytime goalscorer bet.
